|« HUBER+SUHNER shines the spotlight on the future of high density fiber in data centers at Data Centre World||What? EDFA- a noise source! »|
March 11-12, 2015 - Piperska muren, Stockholm, Sweden. Cube Optics is the meeting sponsor of this year's Netnod spring meeting. The program has a focus on technical talks, but aims to have a mix of talks interesting to network operators as well as to others in the Internet community at large.With Susmita Adhikari's presentation at the meeting, we delve into the basics of passive monitoring technology and discuss a relatively low cost and simple in-service real-time monitoring solution that provides instantaneous root cause of the fault, without any impact on data traffic.
For network operators, ensuring a high level of network performance is of utmost importance. Every second of the interruption in the data traffic not only leads to customer dissatisfaction but also impacts on the scarce and valuable network support team that could be better utilized elsewhere.
While almost all field-deployed active optical systems are equipped with management layer to monitor the data-in-transit, the actual fault location in the fiber or passive equipment is often missing.
