Fiber assurance solution for lean operations
Fiber is a high-value asset. It transports huge amounts of data, generating significant revenue. Fiber failure demands immediate action but a lack of information about the nature of a problem often makes this impossible. In-service fiber monitoring solves this issue and our unique ALM does it with unrivalled efficiency.
Operations teams have one key objective: run a complex communication infrastructure as efficiently as possible. In the event of network failure, a root cause analysis should not require on-site field forces with expensive measurement equipment. Giving customers higher bandwidth services should be possible without changing demarcation device. Gathering real-time information about the integrity of the fiber network should not require costly new kit. Proactive fiber link monitoring solves those challenges. Our ALM is an in-service advanced link monitoring solution for highly precise, real-time monitoring of fiber links. It streamlines operational processes, shortens repair cycles and enables service-agnostic network demarcation.
Improved service qualityReal-time information on fiber integrity for fast failure detection and short repair cycles
Non-intrusive monitoringInherent compatibility of demarcation reflectors with any user data protocol as well as multiwavelength transmission systems
Streamlined operationsIn-service fiber monitoring for immediate separation between failures of active devices and problems with the fiber plant
Higher availabilityDetecting degradations and initiating countermeasures before services are affected and SLAs are violated
Simplified demarcationPassive demarcation reflectors for operation without power supply even under harsh environmental conditions
Intuitive management interfaceIntegrated with market-leading geographic information systems (GIS) to quickly and easily localize fiber issues
Applications in your network
Simplifying operations and creating more value from fiber networks
- Enhancing dark fiber services with real-time assurance information and shorter repair cycles
- Passive demarcation minimizing operational cost at customer premises with powerless operation
- Proactive fiber monitoring instead of post-failure problem analysis with field services engagement
- Non-intrusive fiber monitoring for assured service delivery enabling service modifications and upgrades without on-site visits
- Remote access to passive fiber sensors for monitoring of unpowered sites
