It is compliant to ITU-T G.993.2 standard and supports VDSL2 30a profile that features 100 Mbps of symmetric data rate over the existing copper wires. NV-1602S is an ideal choice for ISPs and System Integrators that are looking for a high performance broadband solution for their triple play applications. It offers a user-friendly management interface that allows service providers to monitor and control their services in a highly secure and efficient way. With many powerful and advanced features, this Mini IP DSLAM is the perfect solution for deploying broadband access, IP Surveillance, Hospitality and MTU/MDU applications.


Internal redundant power adapter support

The NV-1602S can be powered two -48V DC power supply. The DC power interface is a 5-pin terminal block is located below the AC socket of the DSLAM. 2P is for accommodating one DC power input and other 2P is for accommodating another DC power input. The center pin of the terminal block is FGND. The DC power should be connected to a well-fused power supply. When using a DC voltmeter, Please check for proper voltage: -75V ~ -36 VCD, and make sure that the polarity is correct.



During operation, both power supplies are switched on and share the current load. In case that one of them should fail, the other will instantaneously take 100% of the load without any loss. Similarly, if one power supply is removed from servicing, it can be switched off and removed while the chassis continues functioning.


Traffic Flow QoS Ensuring for Application Services
The VDSL2 Switch contains robust QoS features such as port-based, 802.1p priority and IP TOS/DSCP. It guarantees the best performance of VoIP and video stream transmission and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.


IEEE 802.1q Q-in-Q VLAN for performance & security

The VLAN feature in the switch offers the benefits of both security and performance. VLAN is used to isolate traffic between different users and thus provides better security. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN broadcast domain also enhances performance. VLAN support enabling advanced techniques such as 802.1Q-in-1Q to be deployed. And support GVRP up to 4k V-Lan groups.


Selectable VDSL2 Data Rate for Service Differentiation
Through the management interface, the administrator can control the data rate of each VDSL2 port. Telecom and ISP can immediately and remotely upgrade/downgrade bandwidth service upon different demands.


Broadcast/Multicast/Unknown-unicast Storm Control

To limit too many broadcast/multicast/unknown-unicast flooding in the network, broadcast/multicast storm control is used to restrict excess traffic. Threshold values are available to control the rate limit for each port. Packets are discarded if the count exceeds the configured upper threshold.


Powerful Layer 2 Features
For efficient management, via Web interface, the NV-1602S can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, port link aggregation, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, port mirroring, Rapid Spanning Tree and ACL security. Additionally, the firmware includes advanced features such as IGMP snooping, QoS (Quality of Service), broadcast storm and bandwidth control to enhance bandwidth utilization.

Enhanced Security
The VDSL2 switch offers comprehensive Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) to filter out unwanted traffic. Its protection mechanisms comprise 802.1X RADIUS user and device authentication. Moreover, the VDSL2 switch provides MAC filter, Static MAC, and Port Security for enforcing security policies to the edge. Administrators can now build highly secure corporate networks have considerably less time and effort than before.

1. What is NV-1602S related products?


NV-1602S can fully compatible with NV-600A,NV-600W,NV-600AI, NV-600WI.


2. POWER indicator does not light up (green) after power on.


Check the power plug by plugging in another that is functioning properly. Check the power cord with another device. If these measures fail to resolve the problem, have the unit power supply replaced by a qualified distributor.


3. Link indicator does not light up (green) after making a connection.


Network interface (ex. a network adapter card on the attached device), network cable, or switch port is defective.

• Power off and re-power on the VDSL bridged.

• Verify that the bridge and attached device are power on.

• Be sure the cable is plugged into both the bridge and corresponding device.

• Check if the proper cable type is used and its length exceed specified limits.

• Check the bridge on the attached device and cable connections for possible defects.

• Replace the defective bridge or cable if necessary.


4. Upstream bandwidth control failed.


NIC(Networking Interface Card) does not have flow control function.
Be sure the NIC(Networking Interface Card) supports flow control function.


5. The customer reported that bandwidth control did not work in either direction when the port was set to 1 on the ingress and 1 on the Down(egress). One of our new HP laptops should bandwidth control at around 125K on the download, but around 1.7Mbps on the upload. On my laptop, it was around 100K on the download and 225K on the upload. Is there a reason why we are seeing such varied results and has there been any other reported problem with this feature lately?


Regarding our VDSL2 IP DSLAM' principle of bandwidth control, which must rely on flow control to limit bandwidth over hardware, as long as client side doesn't support flow control, the upstream bandwidth control is invalid, so for this case, client side must support flow control function.


6. Why VDSL2 configure change invalid ?


After any change to VDSL2 configure. Line must be deactivated then activated once or reboot, then new configure will be valid.


7. Is that possible to use ADSL2+ modems with with the VDSL2 IP DSLAM ?
  1. Please Note that it is not possible to use ADSL2+ modems with the VDSL2 IP DSLAM, since ADSL2+ is based on ATM frame and our VDSL2 IP DSLAM is based on EFM frame. Two frames are not compatible.
8. Sometimes the CPE lose the connection to DSLAM.


Due to heavy noise of field environment or phone wiring does not meet specifications.
1. We strong recommend all VDSL2 ports must use 24 gauge with twisted pair phone wiring.
2. Please replace the head of RJ11 wiring, if it has been oxidized or damaged.
3. Using phone cable must be stretched straight, without using reel phone cable, this will cause heavy crosstalk noise.
4. If port link problem, please change band profile to long reach mode as 12a or 8d AnnexB.


9. Sometimes the IP DSLAM unstable.


Due to heavy noise or impulse noise of field environment caused unstable.
1. If NV-1602S hangs up, please enable broadcast strom function.
2. If CPE happened sync issue, please configure interleave delay time to anti-noise.
3. Enable INP(impulse noise protection) to 8 or above and enable "Force INP" for preventing impulse noise.

1. Please note that enable interleave delay function will reduce a few vdsl2 bandwidth.
2. Interleave delay value must greater than or equal to INP value, otherwise VDSL2 will not establish a connection.
3. Please note you must deactivate then activate once on config port when you configure INP and interleave dalay value.


10. What is an acceptable SNR for VDSL2?


Higher SNR numbers represent cleaner signals with less noise.  In some instances interleaving can help raise the noise margin to an acceptable level.

< 6dB: An SNR of less than 6 dB usually will result in line issues.
7dB - 10dB: This is a decent SNR but doesn't leave much room for variances in line conditions.
11dB - 20dB: Most people who live within a short amount of distance from the VRAD (less than 1500 feet) will have an SNR within that range.  This will result in little to no sync problems. 20dB - 28dB: Outstanding SNR, you must have the VRAD as your next door neighbor.


11. I would like to fully understand the limitations of the low pass filter in the NV-1602S (0-125Khz). Can you please cover this in more detail as I do not want this to affect these potential projects.


NV-1602S working frequency is from 138khz - 30Mhz, and POTS ports build in a low pass splitter(0 -125khz), we found many kinds of PBX spectrum in hotel system, every hotel's PBX working spectrum was different, if hotel PBX spectrum is low than NV-1602S POTS port, it means hotel's PBX spectrum doesn't conflict with NV-1602S, but it is impossible. According with our experience that almost of Hotel PBX spectrum is high than POTS splitter, so only one method can do it, you can try parallel connect line port without through POTS port, for this method that PBX spectrum must not overlap NV-1602S working spectrum, and please note you have to check hotel PBX system in advance when you will install a hotel.
