Know your fiber
Fibers are the essential medium for today's high capacity communication networks. Each and every day they are responsible for the transportation of aggregated internet, data and video traffic. A single fiber connects thousands of customers and enterprises, carrying a mixture of residential, business and mission-critical data. As such, the impact of a broken fiber can be enormous and must be responded to immediately. There is no room for time-consuming, manual fault isolation.
Proactive trouble shooting
Thankfully, communication network and dark fiber service providers can apply a simple technique for significantly improving service availability and lowering operational cost. In-service fiber monitoring gives service providers an efficient means to identify and localize any problems with their fiber infrastructure even before services are affected. With real-time data at hand, operational teams can immediately respond and resolve any fiber issue.
Immediate fault isolation, including precise localization of root causes, takes place in real-time without the need for time-consuming onsite visits.
Simple solution, huge impact
Our ALM technology provides full visibility of passive fiber networks. It concurrently monitors up to 16 fibers by feeding an optical test signal into the data-carrying fiber at unused spectrum, enabling fully non-intrusive monitoring of the fiber plant. Any degradation is identified even before services are affected. Immediate fault isolation, including precise localization of root causes, takes place in real-time without the need for time-consuming onsite visits. And with much faster repair cycles, customer satisfaction and loyalty are significantly increased.
