Bringing light into the dark
Without fiber monitoring, high-bandwidth services are always at risk of disruption, often with significant negative impact on customers. As soon as service providers invest in a proactive solution that measures the integrity of their fiber plant, they can efficiently isolate faults and take immediate targeted action. This dramatically shortens repair cycles and avoids unnecessary truck rolls. So why have many service providers been slow to implement in-service fiber monitoring solutions until now? In the past, fiber testing technology was designed for reactive measurement, while proactive solutions often failed to meet the cost and practicality requirements of many networks. Now a technology exits to address this urgent need.
Improved service quality
Real-time information on fiber integrity for fast failure detection and short repair cycles.
Now service providers and businesses can truly maximize the potential of their fiber assets for more robust, efficient services and a crucial competitive edge.
Inherent compatibility of demarcation reflectors with any user data protocol as well as multi-wavelength transmission systems.
Real-time fibre assurance
Our ALM is a vital tool for service providers aiming to deliver superior performance. Designed for maximum power efficiency, it provides real-time, in-service fiber monitoring of the entire optical plant, enabling operators to know immediately if and where issues arise. With the Adtran ALM, operators can avoid unsuccessful repair attempts, prevent outages and enhance customer experience. This simple solution requires no active, onsite equipment at the remote site as it can be configured to passively monitor access services. Eliminating active demarcation further reduces cost and frees operators to deploy the Adtran ALM in even the most extreme environmental conditions.
In-service fiber monitoring for immediate separation between failures of active devices and problems with the fiber plant.
A new era of fiber monitoring
What makes our ALM so unique is its size and its cost. Until recently, such technology was either too expensive, too large or too impractical. Now, this small device is changing things in a big way, as it makes effective, real-time fiber assurance of access and metro networks affordable to all operators. With its transparent, service-agnostic monitoring, our ALM provides a fiber monitoring solution for an unprecedented range of applications in both fixed and mobile access. Now service providers and businesses can truly maximize the potential of their fiber assets for more robust, efficient services and a crucial competitive edge.
