Abstract

Although many of the communication terminals on the market today contain a self-test feature of detecting whether or not the terminal is capable of transmitting and/or receiving data, in the present office environment there is a need for the ability to isolate any failure to a lower level in the equipment thereby allowing quick repair of the system.
