Nortel TN-4XE Reference System in the MMX Repair Centre 

Our reference system is used to diagnose faults with customer’s cards and also to confirm satisfactory performance including traffic flow post repair. It can be hard to find spare parts for legacy Nortel SDH and so repair makes a great deal of sense for the operator. Especially since this equipment is typically being used for a much longer period than was envisaged by the manufacturer due to its robustness.
