PON infrastructure monitoring

For both end users and network operators, the challenge of monitoring and maintaining passive optical network (PON) infrastructure has been a persistent issue. Traditional PON monitoring tools relied on network activity, making them ineffective in troubleshooting physical fiber plant issues like cuts. This limitation left network operators in the dark when trying to identify the true cause and location of faults. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this problem that eliminates these concerns and offers a proactive approach to fiber monitoring.

Introducing our ALM advanced fiber monitoring solution with deep PON assurance (DPA) technology. This solution transforms the way PON networks are monitored and maintained. Unlike traditional methods, the Adtran ALM goes beyond live network assurance by providing real-time, in-service, OTDR-based monitoring of the physical fiber plant. It offers critical information about fiber health, attenuation and even detects fiber cuts without relying on the network’s operational status. With ALM, network operators gain immediate visibility into the state of their infrastructure, enabling targeted actions and preventing unnecessary disruptions.
