Overview

This course provides an introduction to the essential parts of the XMC20 TDM functionality. It includes an overview of TDM, PCM and CAS principles.

The course continues with an introduction to a number of TDM-based units which support these technologies, SELI8, SUPM1/ SUPM2 and TUXA1 units. Also covered are the SDSL8 unit and its associated desktop device LineRunner DTM.

Target Group

This course will provide students with a comprehensive practical introduction to working with these units - including areas of commissioning, monitoring, testing and fault-finding within the TDM areas. This includes using ECST to create Cross-connections and also how to design and apply synchronisation.

It is designed for all those who require a technical introduction to TDM on the XMC20. This includes Installation and Commissioning engineers, Operations and Maintenance staff, Support engineers and Planners.
