Cost installation analysis of FTTH test bed network set up-previous, present and future

Abstract

There are several methods for testing and troubleshooting a fiber-to-the-home passive optical network (FTTH-PON). The simplest and low cost method would be using a power meter which is able to detect the total loss on the network. However, to identify faulty sections of a network, segmentation need to be done together with the Optical Power Meter (OPM). Another testing and troubleshooting method would be using the optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR). The OTDR within the network is able to detect the component that causes losses in the network. However, elements acting as a power splitter are not being able to be detected by the OTDR. Therefore, the Access Control System (ACS) is developed to bypass those elements and allows the use of OTDR entirely. With the combination of SANTAD and CAPU we ensure the monitoring can be handled efficiently and failures can be restored immediately just after be detected by the sensor. This method is proven to be a faster, efficient, reliable method than the first. Additionally, it can be upgraded to monitor the line status by accumulate all the result in one display computer screen. The new configuration of FTTH is named as modified FTTH. But this mechanism is not interested to be implemented due the installation is too high which is three times higher. We come out we another device which assembly all the features offered by the modified FTTH onto one single device named as Multi access Detection Unit (MADU).In the end, we compare the installation cost between the conventional. modified FTTH and MADS based solution for different network size/number of users.
