Abstract

This paper presented the development and implementation of the effective and low cost solution for status determination of all lines in Fiber-to-the-Home. Fires in manholes, or nearby, often cause cable damage, resulting in loss of service. Accidental digging by construction crews is a frequent problem. These problems can cause customer service interruption. To minimize the problem, wireless monitoring system in FTTH has been built to monitor and detect the failure in optical line and enable the engineer to make restoration. We use 'tapping' method to obtain the optical signal from FTTH line and the signal then will be fed into the optical passive circuit that consist of WDM Coupler SM 1480/1550nm and fused coupler SM 10:90 1550nm. Testing on the development concept is carried out. From this testing, it is established that this system is capable of detecting any occurrence of failure/faults and recovery the failure links within 10 s.
