This document establishes techniques for validating that an Network Terminal (NT), Network Controller (NC), and Switch complies with the physical layphysrequirements delineated in AS5653. The purpose of this document is to provide methods for validating that the NTs, NCs, and Switches complies with the physical requirements of AS5653. This document provides a modular, independent set of methods for each of the physical layer requirements in AS5653 that applies to a NTs, NCs, and Switches.
AS5653 is a new interface standard and no document currently exists that provides guidance for NT, NC, and Switch physical layer validation. A validation standard an essential part of ensuring that AS5653 provides a measurable set of parameters that ensure interoperability within the scope of influence of the interface standard.
