A G.hs Handshaking Protocol Analyzer For ADSL Matthew Langlois

A protocol analyzer is a device that non-intrusively monitors bi-directional communications on a link, demodulates the physical layer signals, and captures the raw binary data for subsequent state and timing analysis. There are no commercial products currently available that perform this function for ADSL link initialization procedures. In this project, a MATLAB application was developed that enables capture (via a digital sampling oscilloscope) and protocol analysis of the first segment, known as handshaking, of the ADSL link initialization procedure. The protocols of interest are ITU-T G.994.1 (G.hs), which defines the activation and handshaking procedures used by complaint ADSL equipment, and ITU-T G.992.1 (G.dmt), which defines the physical layer requirements of ADSL equipment utilizing the Discrete Multi-Tone (DMT) line code.

High Speed Digital Subscriber Line - Second Generation ANSI T1.418-2000 Start-up Phase Test Suite Stephen Scapicchio

InterOperability is becoming increasingly important in today?s communication industry. In a time when the consumer has more choice and flexibility in their home networking and Internet services than ever before, single vendor solutions are nearly impossible and most definitely impractical. For this reason manufacturers are taking every precaution to make sure their products work properly with all other manufacturers? products. In this spirit standards bodies are formed with the claim that modems will work collectively if they adhere to the approved standard. However, as with all documents the standards are open to interpretation. This test suite will ensure complete activation phase compliance of a High Bit Rate Digital Subscriber Line- Second Generation modem. The tests are designed to scrutinize the modems adherence to American Nation Standards Industry?s Ti.418-2000 High bit rate Digital Subscriber Line- 2nd Generation (HDSL2) approved standard. All anticipated results are based on this document and the validity of the anticipated results can be proved using this document. The methods of testing are as low level as possible and do not rely on a specific vendor?s product so the most accurate and unbiased results may be obtained.

RSP: Development of an 802.11 MAC Richard L. Lynch

In the growing world of ubiquitous networking, people often take for granted that interoperability exists between their network devices and the networks they are connecting to. Consortium vendors and international standards bodies are formed to establish standards on how devices should behave if they wish to communicate with each other. However, verifying conformance to these standards is no trivial task. The RSP was developed to add to the Wireless LAN Consortium's testing capabilities. The RSP has the capability of reacting to wireless traffic in a manner that tests a device's handling of uncommon, but very important conditions. The RSP Consists of an 802.11 MAC'less card from Intersil, interfaced to an Altera programmable logic device, which in turn communicates with a PC through a USB microcontroller.
