The more the testimony of the charts in the results of measurements build the program, the better your phone lines. You can also make conclusions about this from a report program. Look for the following characteristics: Noise Margin (noise immunity) and Attenuation (signal attenuation).
Assess the value of noise immunity, if it is less than 6, then the line is very bad, it has problems with synchronization. The value of this parameter from 7 to 10, it can fail. From 11 to 20 line good. If the indicator 21 and over – line is very good, interference will not.
Then look at the parameter of the attenuation of the signal if it is less than 20, then your line is great. Normal rate – from 20 to 40. If the value is between 40 and 50, on lines there will be failures. Occasionally it will disappear sync, if the figure is between 50 and 60. If it is above 60, the equipment will not work.
