Testing FTTx/PON Networks: A Critical Step for Error-Free Deployment

With bandwidth demand growing faster than revenues, operators are boosting network capacity by rapidly shifting to FTTx. In a context of high pressure on cost and decreasing level of optical expertise in the field, FTTx/PON network  testing is a necessity, and this, throughout all stages of the network lifecycle.

Faster, more reliable FTTH deployments. EXFO solutions.

EXFO provides network operators with the expert testing knowledge, tools and environment they need to bridge the OPEX gap created by the increased bandwidth demand. With field-proven methods and procedures, smart and integrated test solutions and cloud-based data management, FTTH networks can now be deployed reliably and cost-effectively.

Choosing EXFO means selecting the world leader in portable fiber-optic test equipment. With over 25 years of proven expertise and innovation in optical testing as well as a true understanding of the FTTH field reality, EXFO is the ideal test and measurement provider to partner with—enhancing deployment methods and procedures to reduce costs.

The knowledge we gain, we share. EXFO has closely collaborated with tier-1 operators across the globe. Present in 80% of the world’s major FTTH deployments, our experts have worked in various environments with multiple network configurations (i.e., connectorized, spliced, with multisplitters, in-home or at demarcation points, etc.) and were partners in multiple experiments—from labs to the field. What’s more, a complete library of FTTx/PON documentation (e.g., webinars, multimedia, application notes, reference guides, etc.) has been developed by our experts to enhance optical testing methods and procedures—sharing knowledge with our partners and customers.

 

 

Innovation is at the core of EXFO’s success. In the FTTH area, EXFO has brought to market many innovative solutions that truly modified the way fiber is tested in the field. EXFO launched the industry’s first optical lost test set (OLTS), PON power meter (PPM), handheld OTDR and PON-optimized OTDR and initiated live-port testing (1625 nm). More recently, EXFO demonstrated how operators can improve their operational efficiency with the Intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM) and has provided game-changing solutions to the management level with test equipment and data management applications, bringing a new layer of control to FTTH network operators.

EXFO’s powerful and intelligent test solutions combine the most advanced technology with automation and a field-smart design for improved operational efficiency—at all steps of the network lifecycle.

The growing pressure on cost is forcing the telecom industry to innovate and find new ways to improve overall efficiency and reduce OPEX, and this reality becomes even more critical in intensive FTTH network deployments.

EXFO’s industry vigilance quickly identified the needs of telcos: simple, accurate and fast equipment that will enable them to remain competitive during the deployment stages and this, while boosting the value and efficiency of equipment and data management as they continue to grow, by maximizing the value of their test results.

With the FTB Ecosystem and through value-added applications such as EXFO Connect, a powerful cloud-based test management solution, EXFO is the only test equipment provider that offers a full-scale environment that allows operators to streamline their test operations—from build-out to maintenance—helping them keep their competitive edge.

  • Connect the entire test fleet to push, gather or share information through 3G, VPN and cloud-based data management
  • Centralize and automate test equipment, including GPS geo-location of platforms
  • Manage software and ensure automatic updates to your test crew
  • Store, consolidate and secure test data across the entire company
  • Correlate data and tailor reporting, that present better information for better decision making.
