FTTX PON Testing

PON Testing with FastLight

The FastLight fibre test system consists of a central server coordinating measurements by multiple PoP based OTDR's, Optical Test Access Switches in a range of sizes, and Test Access Filters (TAF/WDM) to allow in-service testing. The fixed PoP-based OTDR allows operators in customer-facing call centres to initiate tests. FastLight return Fault/NoFault diagnostics whilst the customer is still on the phone. If a fault is detected FastLight provides a fault location highlighted on a map, and a probable cause.

If no fault is detected on the network the customer can be informed that the problem is not network based and provide further telephone support or send an engineer to rectify the problem.

This not only reduces OpEx, it improves customer satisfaction levels and identifies provider responsibility (where Third Party equipment is part of the customers installation). Truck rolls and wasted manpower drastically increase OpEx.
