SHDSL / Copper Loop testing


     I'm looking for reccomendations for a copper-loop test set that can effectively troubleshoot SHDSL. I'm looking for more than 'yup, I got sync' - it would be very helpful to be able to see noise/interference as well as calculate loop length, check bridge taps, and any other kind of metallic testing that would help to identify and isolate loop troubles.

     Thank you.


Aside from the metrics from inside the modem, you are not going to get much more unless you have access to the telco's internal metallic testing equipment.

(I used to fix the CO based equipment that the telco used for that testing before I left in '98)
