FiberCare

Optical fiber testing and monitoring system

  • Automatically detect all defects along optical networks
    • Break free
    • Aging of a weld or a connector
    • Stress fiber
    • Optical contacts pollution
    • Malice, fire, rodents, vandalism...
  • Ensure quality of service and reduce operating and maintenance costs
    • Minimize loss due to outage
    • Avoid penalties
    • Take and meet new commitment
    • Provide warranty service
  • No need to be an expert in optical measurements
    • Analysis and diagnostic made automatically by equipment
    • Automatically locate events on a map and send email and/or SMS to maintenance team (with on-call duty management)
    • Full web interface to be available everywhere
  • Can be used to monitor:
    • Backbone networks
    • FTTx networks
    • Leased fibers with strong guaranteed fault repair time

FiberCare system architecture

Our OTDR (OTDU) are fully autonomous and take in charge all measurements on each fiber and compare them to references. In case of difference regarding parametrized thresholds, it generates alarms internally with an optical location of faults. Then it sends them to the server through IP network. The server adds a geographical location thanks to complex algorithms to convert an optical length to GPS coordinates. The last action of the server is to provide these documented alarms to users in different ways (SMS, email...) with or without an on-call duty management.
The system is really easy to use and no need to be an expert in optical measurement to be able to secure assets such as fibers.
