Alcatel-Lucent Embedded Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR)
Embedded monitoring tool and fiber access node and management solution that provides troubleshooting of fiber networks. Integrated in PON access node and Motive Network Analyzer-Fiber, Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR) improves external fiber monitoring solutions. OTDR collects and analyzes network parameter data to provide a view of network state. During network roll-out it provides remote validation of the network’s installation progress, assuring connectivity without delay. When the network is in service, Alcatel-Lucent’s solution continuously monitors all lines, pinpointing network problems and making field interventions more efficient.
