Spanish-based Telnet Redes Inteligentes, which manufacturers telecommunications equipment, mobile phone antennas and fiber optic cable, has developed a tool to certify a fiber to the home (FTTH) installation and diagnose the source of a problem in a GPON Network.
The solution consists of two devices, one handheld for the installer, called GPON-Tester and the other, in central, optionally emulates the functioning of an OLT in operation. The equipment for the installer is self-contained, portable and designed for tasks of certification and troubleshooting at customer premises, allowing the verification of an optical connection in less than 2 seconds. In addition, with a laptop, the technician can perform intuitively more advanced measures such as the received power, optical reflection, synchronization, BER (bit error rate), GPON service provisioning and testing the quality of the experience.
At the conclusion of the measures, the GPON-Tester system automatically generates a report certifying the installation for further processing by the operator. Each report includes a digital signature that authenticates the contents and prevents the modification of the reports.
