Abstract

We proposed and experimentally demonstrated a new in-line monitoring and testing system with the combination of Passive In-line Monitoring (PIM) device and Centralized Failure Detection System (CFDS) for transmission surveillance and failure detection without affecting the triple-play service delivery in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) access network. PIM device is a fully passive device used for optical signals tapping purposes, meanwhile CFDS is a centralized monitoring and troubleshooting solution with graphical user interface (GUI) processing capabilities in MATLAB. Any fiber fault occurs in the network will be determined by CFDS, while the PIM device is used to determine sharply the failure point before taking some appropriate actions. This approach has a bright prospect to improve the survivability and reliability as well as increase the efficiency and monitoring capabilities in an optical access network.
