Abstract

An optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) is an instrument that used to measure parameters such as attenuation, length, connectors and splice losses, reflectance level and locating faults in an optical link. The measurement results are saved in OTDR and then transfer into computer for further analysis by using computerbased emulation software for performing more OTDR trace processing. In this paper, we proposed and demonstrated a new in-line monitoring and testing system based on Line Monitoring Device (LMD) and Centralized Failure Detection System (CFDS) for transmission surveillance and failure detection without affecting the transmission in an optical access network. LMD is passive device for optical signals tapping purpose; meanwhile CFDS is a centralized monitoring and troubleshooting solution with the GUI processing in MATLAB software. The LMD network will be analysis through both programs by means of OTDR installed software and our CFDS. The results are eventually compared and show both are reliable with the second is able to be extended for further analysis. Any fiber failure or breakdown occurs in the network will be determined by CFDS while the LMD is used to determine sharply the point of failure before it is been repaired. The proposed systems are able to improve the service reliability and reduce the repairing cost and time.
