ALM Series Fibre Monitoring Solution
Fibre monitoring solution for lean operations
ADVA’s ALM is a vital tool for service providers aiming to deliver superior performance. It provides operators with real-time, on-site fibre monitoring of the entire optical plant, enabling them to know immediately if and where the issues arise while avoiding outages and enhancing customer experience. This simple solution is designed for maximum power efficiency and requires no active, onsite equipment at the remote site as it can be configured to passively monitor access services. Eliminating active demarcation further reduces cost and frees operators to deploy the ALM in even the most extreme environmental conditions.
ADVA ALM Series Fibre Monitoring Solution
With ADVA’s ALM fibre monitoring solution, service providers get real-time insight into the quality of their fibre infrastructure. In the event of an attenuation problem, fibre breakage or a tapping event, the users are immediately notified with the exact geographic location via the ADVA Ensemble Fiber Director or third-party geographic information systems (GIS). Furthermore, with its small footprint, low power consumption, and self-calibrating capabilities, ADVA’s ALM will never require regular maintenance.
The ALM provides a fiber monitoring solution for an unprecedented range of applications in both fixed and mobile access, with its transparent, service-agnostic monitoring. Now service providers and businesses can truly maximize the potential of their fibre assets for more robust, efficient services and a crucial competitive edge.
