FTTx/PON Test & Monitoring

A centralized strategy provides an alternative to relying on time-consuming coordination between the Central Office (CO) and field personnel using hand-held devices to conduct testing. A Polatis optical switch, in combination with next-generation Passive Optical Network (PON)/Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) test equipment and analysis software provides a capability for single-ended measurements that lower the overall cost to build and maintain the FTTx network, enabling faster service turn-up, faster service restoration, reduced Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) and reduced numbers of field personnel.
