Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR LOCALIZING IN-HOUSE WIRING DEFECTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DESTINES A LOCALISER DES DEFAUTS DE CABLAGE INTERNES
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a method for localizing a defect (12c) in a in-house access plant operable to carry broadband communication services (50). A method according to the invention further comprises the steps of : instructing a user (18) of said in-house access plant to manipulate in-house equipment through an automated and interactive communication session (33), determining timing information (t1, t2, t3) for each manipulation (ml, m2, m3) that is carried out, performing remote quality measurements over said in-house access plant while said in-house equipment are being manipulated, identifying from said timing information a particular manipulation (m3) that is time-correlated with a substantial change (60) in measured quality, thereby identifying a particular piece of in-house equipment (15) that has been manipulated and in the neighborhood of which said defect is located. The present invention also relates to an analysis tool (42) such as a network analyzer, a communication unit such an intelligent voice responder or a web server, and to a diagnostic system (40).

L'invention concerne un procédé destiné à localiser un défaut dans un plan d'accès interne permettant de supporter des services de communication à large bande. Un procédé de l'invention comprend en outre les étapes consistant: à instruire un utilisateur du plan d'accès interne afin de manipuler l'équipement interne à travers une session de communication automatisée et interactive, à déterminer les informations de synchronisation pour chaque manipulation qui est réalisée, à mettre en oeuvre les mesures de qualité à distance via ce plan d'accès interne alors que l'équipement interne est manipulé, à identifier à partir de ces informations de synchronisation une manipulation particulière liée au temps avec un changement substantiel dans la qualité mesurée, identifiant ainsi une pièce particulière d'équipement interne ayant été manipulée et dans l'environnement duquel le défaut est localisé. L'invention concerne également un outil d'analyse tel qu'un analyseur de réseau, une unité de communication telle qu'un répondeur vocal intelligent ou un serveur Web, et un système de diagnostic.
