  • Protect your investment and maximize your test budget – the unique modular architecture of the new TTC 2000 platform offers unprecedented upgrade potential. And most upgrades can easily be made in the field
  • A state-of-the-art nickel metal-hydride (NiMH) battery offers you increased battery life at a lower weight than other battery technologies
  • Take advantage of a wide range of PCMCIA memory and communication products. The T-BERD 2209 includes a standard dual PCMCIA interface connection compatible with two Type II or one Type III cards
  • Sturdy, yet lightweight, the T-BERD 2209 is designed to meet your requirements for field-ready toughness

Fast, Simple, Intuitive

Touch-Screen Graphical User Interface

The applications-oriented graphical user interface (GUI) is based on a powerful combination of touchscreen software and the largest VGA gray-scale display available in any product of its kind. No test instrument has ever been this simple or elegant. Testing is automatic – with one touch, your technicians can have the information they need and be on their way to the next test site.

Field-Replaceable Battery

The unpredictability of field testing demands battery operation. Powered by a state of-the-art nickel metal- hydride (NiMH) battery, the T-BERD 2209 goes wherever you need to go. The battery is small and easily accessible – so if it runs low on site, you can install a new one and resume testing in seconds. Advanced software and battery charge hardware allows the battery to charge in either trickle-charge or fast-charge modes.

Advanced Low-Power Technology

The T-BERD 2209 utilizes technology advances in low-power design, high-integration ASICs, and state of- the-art memory and logic devices to minimize size and maximize battery life. You’ll get three hours of uninterrupted battery operation on each charge.

Designed for the Way You Test

Rugged Field-Oriented Design

With more than 20 years of test experience, we know how and where you test. We’ve constructed the T-BERD 2209 with a tough rubber overmold and a sturdy custom display mounting to protect it against extreme temperatures, vibrations, and mechanical twists. Each instrument is durability-tested to stand up to the on-site conditions you face every day.

Modular Architecture

The T-BERD 2209’s TTC 2000 platform sets a new standard for flexibility and future growth potential for lightweight, hand-held test instruments. The T-BERD 2209 application module separates easily from the TTC 2000 platform, so you can quickly plug in other applications as your testing needs change.

Dual PCMCIA Interface

Two PCMCIA slots add to your T-BERD 2209’s power and versatility, making it easy to install future software upgrades. And the T-BERD 2209 is designed with non-volatile memory, so the loss of an upgrade card does not put you out of service.

The Logical Choice in Network Testing

Maintaining telecommunications networks becomes more challenging every day. The industry is changing fast, with new technologies, new competitors, and new network service offerings. You need an instrument designed to simplify testing of today’s most complex, far reaching networks. For highly integrated test applications on both the pipeline and service levels, the T-BERD 2209 is the logical choice.

The T-BERD 2209 is designed as a value-added tool to help you install and maintain revenue-earning networks and services quickly, easily, and inexpensively. With just a touch, you’ll know that your network is performing as advertised, and you can rest assured that you are offering your customers the highest quality voice and data services available.

Dual-Receiver In-Service Monitoring

Use the dual-receiver capability of the T-BERD 2209 to perform in-service monitoring of both transmit and receive signals simultaneously.

Advanced Timing Analysis

Pinpoint signal delays, timing slips, and mismatches between switch and remote equipment using the advanced timing analysis features of the T-BERD 2209.

Physical-Layer Problems

Isolate and troubleshoot physical-layer problems associated with data or other advanced services, without taking unaffected channels out of service.

The Right Touch for Telecommunications Testing

For customers deploying voice and data network technologies, the T-BERD 2209 combines essential installation and maintenance test functions in an intelligent, field-ready test instrument weighing less than five pounds.

The touch-screen interface simplifies complex test applications and results information, eliminating configuration errors and misdiagnosis of test results. Field technicians will be able to test effectively the first time, every time. The result is increased user efficiency and productivity and less lost revenue from network downtime.

Dual T1 Interface

Monitor and perform BERT testing in both directions of a circuit simultaneously. Identify and sectionalize circuit problems from network equipment faults. The T-BERD 2209 also provides a full range of signal, alarm, and timing tests to ensure proper performance from your T1 network connections.

Advanced Stress Patterns

Include several of the industry-recommended stress patterns in your circuit acceptance criteria to verify proper network performance. These pre-programmed long user patterns include 55 OCTET and T1 DALY.

VF Channel Access and PCM TIMS

Monitor the voice quality of your network with the internal channel monitor functionality of the T-BERD 2209. Verify individual channels and monitor data or signaling bits without disrupting network traffic. Transmit and measure tones on an individual PCM channel basis utilizing the T-BERD 2209’s in-service channel access capabilities – affecting only the channel under test and without impacting other revenue earning channels.

Fractional T1 Channels

Verify proper network routings and signal delays to ensure all channel signals are terminated properly and with the correct timing. Isolate single-circuit faults in rural locations or on the outer reaches of the service area without knocking out the entire line.


Ensure high quality transmission and signaling performance of T1 voice trunks. Test the ability of a switch/PBX to handle incoming calls and emulate switch-to-switch communications. Place, receive, and monitor calls over several trunk types.
