We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:

  1. Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
  2. 5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
  3. Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
  4. FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
  5. Security- preventing fiber tapping and data theft
