European provider of telecommunication measuring technology intec, is presenting its multi-functional Argus testers at CEBIT in Hanover and in parallel at ANGA COM in Cologne this year. The focus is on the current product range of intec’s combi testers. Intec says the new generation of the robust all-rounders is already successfully used by many of the leading European network operators.

Regular upgrades are geared to the rapid changes in the market and make the Argus testers even more future-proof and flexible for their users, says the company. The portfolio of xDSL interfaces now includes ADSL, SHDSL,, VDSL2 Annex Q (profile 35b, super vectoring) and VDSL2 bonding (up to profile 35b). Ethernet performance tests at GigE level (1 Gbit/s) such as loop, traffic generator and RFC2544 are also possible on fibre-based interfaces (FTTx, GPON).

Combined with the Argus Copper Box cable multimeter extension, the spectrum analysis for xDSL (up to 35 MHz) and for WLAN, WLAN-Scan, triple play tests (data, VoIP, IPTV) and much more, intec claims the devices are the only testers worldwide that offer such a broad range. The all-rounder Argus 166 combines all this in a multi-functional device.
