SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunrise Telecom® Incorporated (OTC:SRTI) today announced the addition of Dual T1 and SHDSL.bis modules for the company's award winning RxT™ Platform, the industry's first smart productivity test platform.  The addition of the new modules provides additional test and verification capabilities for operators deploying infrastructures to enable new voice and data business services, next-generation mobile communications and cloud-based applications.

According to ABI Research, the population coverage for 4G will reach 600 million people by the fourth quarter of 2012 and the 4G market could reach 150 million actual LTE subscriptions by the fourth quarter of 2014.  ABI Research reports that coverage will start in urban hotspots but carriers indicate they will push coverage rapidly in order to handle the increasing demand for mobile data.  Consequently, service providers today are tasked with the challenge of efficiently and productively rolling out new infrastructure, verified to deliver the bandwidth and quality of service sophisticated users have grown to demand and expect.

When paired with the rugged, battery-operated RxT™ Productivity Test Platform the Dual T1 Module (RxT 2080) is designed to assist field technicians with the new installation, routine maintenance, and troubleshooting of T1 and DS1 problems in the network.  The Dual T1 Module is suited for everything from wireless backhaul, call center, and integrated voice and data service installation and maintenance.  The module offers a full suite of tools for testing T1 circuits including pulse mask analysis, frequency and signal level measurement, error detection, alarm monitoring, voice frequency, and loopback control.

For providers deploying new wireless services, Sunrise Telecom's SHDSL.bis module (RxT 2600) represents an effective option for connecting towers which are too distant to run fiber.  Additionally, many operators have turned to SHDSL.bis to deliver carrier-grade Ethernet services to small and medium businesses over the existing copper infrastructure.  The SHDSL.bis module for the RxT Platform addresses key test requirements for the installation of business class services and mobile backhaul deployed over an SHDSL access network.  Both legacy ITU-T SHDSL and enhanced SHDSL.bis technologies are supported for one to four copper pairs.

"We continue to add new capability to the RxT platform at an aggressive pace, in keeping with our customers' desire to fully equip and enable a growing force of "super techs" in the field," said Bahaa Moukadam.  "Outfitting field personnel capable of deploying and maintaining both new and legacy network technologies with a single, robust test platform is the key to increasing productivity for our customers who are rolling out new services."

Controlled from a single hand-held set, the fully connected, work-flow optimized, RxT smart productivity test platform enables field technicians to install, verify and troubleshoot 2G and 3G backhaul circuits as well as 4G/LTE backhaul services.  Sunrise Telecom's mobile backhaul solution now includes the RXT-2600 SHDSL.bis, RXT-2080 Dual T1, RxT-2270 E1, RxT-2380 SONET/SDH, RxT-2500 1GE, and RxT-5000 10GE modules, which are all available today through the company's worldwide distribution channels.
