FTH-9000

FTH-9000

Automate fiber network construction test, service activation and assurance monitoring with the most adaptive rack-mounted, remote OTDR test unit available

The Adaptive FTH-9000 combines high resolution optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR) and optical-switch technology to provide remote test certification of fiber under test during construction or service activation, and continuous assurance through OTDR monitoring of multiple fibers anywhere in the network. A single FTH-9000 can test over 4000 fibers.  There are many internal and external switch options and the distance tested depends or the OTDR module selected.  Choose from the industries greatest breadth of OTDR options from CWDM, Tuneable DWDM, DTSS and DTS options.

Simplify PON lifecycle management:  As part of an ONMSi system, the FTH-9000 accelerates FTTH construction certification, service deployment, and troubleshooting and assurance. It can sectionalize the network to determine the cause of a fault or identify optical budget problems. Trend network health changes over time to monetize valuable links and assure service.

Enhance network security: Detect and locate fiber tapping with extreme precision down to tenths of a decibel of loss.

Deploy fiber sensing applications: Transform a fiber into a sensor, creating thousands of strain and temperature data collection points distributed along the fiber using Raman and Brillouin OTDR modules.

Benefits

  • Configure your FTH to your network with a variety of switches, port connection types, OTDRs and software applications
  • Reduce construction costs by accelerating test processes and empowering test staff
  • Reduce MTTR by locating fiber optic faults in minutes instead of hours
  • Reduce operational costs by eliminating erroneous dispatches to the wrong location through accurate, remote location
  • Avoid service disruptions by detecting fiber degradation before it affects service
  • Protect your investment by measuring the long-term performance KPIs of your deployed fibers (IL, slope, strain, etc.)
  • Protect network integrity by quickly detecting and locating fiber intrusion
