Network stability and high levels of network productivity are the preconditions necessary for achieving economic success in the operation of all networks. The aim in so doing is to guarantee a high level of resilience against network outages, and if outages do occur, to ensure a quick detection and rapid troubleshooting process. In its position as a global market leader in fiber-optic connection technologies, DIAMOND has developed a new network monitoring system which is based on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology.
In a P2P network installation, this technology is used to identify each fiber line and manage the Optical Line Identification OLID information through a data base owned by the network operator.

The FBG components can be integrated into the fiber-optic line at any point between the Central Office (CO) and the Optical Termination Outlet (OTO), as a wide range of codes are permitted.
A sequence of Bragg Gratings can be used as an optical line filter in order to provide a unique (OLID) code.

 

Characteristics and benefits:

  • Fast search and identification process for installation errors and outages.

  • Queries and evaluations take place by means of an interrogator.

  • Faults are quickly rectified.

  • The FBG network is integrated in traditional components in a simple and cost-efficient manner with minimum space requirements.

  • FBGs can be used directly in SOC as well as in pigtails/patch cables without any additional space Required.

  • Allows a unique address to be assigned to each client.

  • Flexible coding in networks thanks to a wide range of wavelengths.

  • Segmental monitoring.

  • Fewer accesses to private premises required.
