Issue Description

Can the device MA5616 or the VDSL card H83DVCMM produce any physical test signal/voltage on the VDSL line, so that an engineer on site can easily find the correct line? We have seen the search-tone-test, but you need to terminate the line with some RJ45/RJ11 socket and connect a telephone or similar device to hear that tone. We would like to use a device which detects voltage and beeps when the correct line is near.


The requirement is to find the correct line in a bunch of cables that belongs to the configured port.

Example: DSLAM MA5616 with a 48-port subscriber-cable. The ends are loose and you want to find for example port 17:

MA5611 generates a voltage/test-tone on port 0/1/17> enginees uses for example "Fluke Tone Probe"



The current network should be like the following and as your description. The green marked is what you want to test, from MA5616 to HMDF.
If it is correct , the CLT tool can do a line test, to find out if the sequence is correct or not , the terminal is loosen or not .

Using CLT, we have two solutions:
Solution 1: Connect a sender on the subscriber cable and insert the golden boots on the MDF side , then the light will show you the sequence and loosen and others.

Solution 2: Replace the golden boots by Tracker(the name of the following tool) on the solution 1, and also need to download an APP on mobile phone . When you connect it , it will show if it is correct or not .
