Theoretical and actual results were shown to correlate well for the cases of a single line, a homogeneous network with a bridged tap
, and a cascade of sections with differing wire gauges.
The signal processing circuitry adapts automatically to compensate for distortion caused by cable gauge changes and bridged taps
Westell's DMH technology helps solve the service provider's long-standing bridged tap
This automated measurement uses a combination of time-domain reflectometry (TDR) and frequency-domain reflectometry (FDR) to display a graphical depiction (through a simple wiring diagram) of the location and length of bridged taps
and the end of the cable.
