AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M Communication Markets Division puts the latest OSP testing capability within reach of all telecom service providers with the introduction of the value-priced Dynatel 965AMS Lite, the newest addition to the well-known Dynatel 965 Advanced Modular System (AMS) family of OSP testers.

Designed as the successor to the popular Dynatel Subscriber Loop Analyzer 965DSP from 3M, the new 965AMS Lite enables one technician to quickly, easily and accurately determine and pinpoint pair problems before repairing and pre-qualifying. The latest addition to the Dynatel 965AMS family comes equipped with VOM, RFL and POTS test functions and - for a limited-time - a free Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) upgrade. Visit this website for more information, http://www.3m.com/965.

Weighing in at only 3.3 lbs, the 965AMS Lite from 3M is a hand-held OSP tester housed in a lightweight, ergonomically designed plastic case for field portability and ease of use. Like the other members of the Dynatel 965AMS family, the Lite version also features a large LCD display designed to be highly visible, even in bright sunlight. The unit's rugged, waterproof design meets or exceeds the stringent IEC IP67 immersion test and ASTM D4169 five-foot drop for reliable outdoor use in all weather conditions. 3M provides 24-hour, after-sale technical service in addition to product training and field support.

As the industry's most rugged, dependable and upgradeable family of OSP testers, the Dynatel 965AMS testers lower the total cost of ownership for service providers. Even the entry-level 965AMS Lite can be upgraded with simple software, hardware and module additions to the full VDSL2 parametric testing capability available in the powerful and rugged 965AMS Pro30 (30 MHz).

With the recent addition of the Dynatel 965AMS Pro30 Test Set and the Dynatel Far End Device III, the Dynatel 965AMS family now offers a complete test platform for the field technician. The 965AMS Pro30 extends xDSL parametric measurements up to 30 MHz to support full, double-ended VDSL2 parametric testing with one technician and one truck roll when used in conjunction with the Dynatel Far End Device III.
