Request for info: DSL test gear

  • From: Tim Irwin
  • Date: Tue Jan 15 10:12:53 2002

Hey, folks -

One of my counterparts asked me if I could post the following to the list to
see if anyone else has experience with a product or a combination of
products that meet(s) the following criteria.  Spirent (Smartbits) xDSL test
gear is already a consideration... looking for anything else in the
marketplace.

Contact me off-list if so desired... I'm just the messenger though.

Thanks,
Tim
