Technical Specifications
Optional Accessories

The KE3600  is the  fast, easy-to-use and economical solution  for the installation and troubleshooting of DSL services  in hybrid ADSL1/2/2+/VDSL2 and bundled networks (capable for VDSL2 Vectoring and DSL Bonding).

Ensuring  the  highest  quality  triple-play  services  to  customers  is  a  must  for service providers, but  it  is also a challenge with an aging copper plant and  the need  to maximize  the use of all pairs  in  the cable bundle. Service providers can offer higher  rate/reach by implementing vectoring (ITU-T G.993.5) to take noise mitigation to the next level. Another industry standard method  that helps achiev-ing high-quality multiplay  is ADSL2+ and/or VDSL2 bonding (using two copper pairs as defined within ITU-T G.998.1,2,3) to increase the available data rates and/or the loop lengths to address a new customer service area.
These techniques are supported by the KE3600 to ensure consistency with service providers’ noise mitigation methods and procedures.

The xDSL and Ethernet ports make the KE3600 a flexible tool for qualifying services all the way  from  the central office  to  the customer's equipement.  It also provides powerful  troubleshooting applications that can be used in different modes to quickly isolate faults (network, outside plant, customer equipment or inside wiring). Even in hybrid networks, where FTTH is deployed,  the Ethernet ports can be used  inside  the home  to  test at any point.

KE3600  is  the perfect  tool  for any service provider deploying multiplay services over single-pair or bonded ADSL2+ and/or VDSL2.  Its  rugged design and easy-to-use menu make  it  the ideal tool for installation and repair technicians. With the KE3600, the testing process is highly automated and technicians close their jobs quickly and efficiently. The large display makes it even more user-friendly, and when it comes to saving results, it provides technicians with many connectivity options  for uploading  tests and compiling reports.

Note: Not all options described above are standard available for all KExxxx models.
Some functions are only available as a payable option.
