We have a client who is still paying for an ISDN BRI on their AT&T bill. Of course its in a conference room and it has not been used in over 2 plus years. I want to see if I can buy test equipment to see if it still works so looking for test gear recommendations.
I am also concerned that AT&T can no longer actually produce this technology from this particular CO. The tariff ended in 2006 and it listed as obsolete in 2013 by AT&T. Its in the state of Kentucky so if I could get any help here it would be appreciated. Any suggestions on how to go about confirming whether or not AT&T can still actually produce this.
Thanks, Bruce Brooks

We are using the JDSU ISDN tester. You can pick these up fairly cheap online. They work very well.

This circuit must terminate onto a smart jack or something similar from the provider. Does the equipment there still show the circuit as up/in-service?

Seems to me that spending money on test equipment for a one time "gotcha" is a waste unless you can use it elsewhere. As ffej010 says, what is the status of the smart jack? Have you or the customer asked AT&T about the circuit and the billing?
