Fotech combines advanced fibre optic sensing and AI that automates business-critical asset monitoring activities.
Our pioneering Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology sits at the core of our services and provides unrivalled sensory data that helps our customers solve business-critical challenges.
Our solutions deliver new insights that have helped our customers across the telecoms, energy, security, infrastructure, and road and rail sectors to optimise day-to-day operations.
Onshore and subsea telecoms networks are crucial to serving customers as well as safeguarding business continuity. Fotech’s DAS telecoms monitoring technology is custom-built to constantly monitor your fibre optic telecoms assets. Detecting issues within metres and alerting you within seconds, it is the smart, fast way to protect your valuable fibre optics.
Guarantee telecoms uptime with Fotech’s advanced, intelligent DAS cable monitoring. Protect against accidental or malicious damage, theft, wear and tear and flashover testing. A fully modular system calibrated to your network.
Locating and repairing subsea cable faults is difficult and costly. Fotech’s DAS powered telecoms monitoring automatically detects and analyses arcing, exposure and other potential damage for an optimised response strategy.
Optimise oil, gas and water pipeline networks with a monitoring platform that delivers the information you want to know, and only reports on actual threats to your pipeline. With Fotech’s technology solutions you can explore your pipeline network, enhance your understanding of in-situ activities, and gather intelligence on prolonged or historical events on your network.
Using Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), Fotech’s LivePIPE II® solution processes vast quantities of data in real-time and extracts the actionable information needed to protect your pipelines with zero false positives.
Pipeline operators face a constant battle against a range of potential threats - whether that is corrosion, accidental damage or leaks that may result in environmental harm. It is a difficult balancing act, and it is not getting easier.
Using fibre optic cables, Fotech’s DAS technology monitors perimeters of all sizes automatically, giving you enhanced intelligence on events and patterns in and around a perimeter. Detect, locate, and prevent accidental or malicious damage or intrusions.
Using fibre optic cables that are often hidden from view, Fotech’s DAS technology can monitor international borders automatically, giving you an enhanced understanding of in-situ activities, and gather intelligence on events and patterns in and around a border.
Whether protecting against copper cable theft, data interception, subsea anchor drag, or locating cable fatigue and break down – optimise your cable network with technology that delivers the information you want to know, and only reports on integrity issues and actual threats to your cable infrastructure.
As the demand for green energy continues to grow, offshore energy operators have an expanding network of subsea power cables to monitor and maintain. With cable outages disappointing customers and costing operators a great deal of time and money, preventing cable failures, and quickly identifying and planning for the repair of damage is vital.
Increasingly we depend on a connected world and is especially true for the power and communications cables we rely so heavily on. These cables are vulnerable to both accidental and malicious damage, as well as electrical and mechanical failures and interruptions leave customers disappointed and are costly to operators.
Fotech’s Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology converts thousands of kilometres of optical fibres already in place in our cities into millions of acoustic and vibration sensors. DAS converts cables into a network of state-of-the-art sensors. This allows cities to send and receive information and simultaneously monitor city infrastructure, in real-time, at a much more detailed level, all while providing anonymity to its citizens.
With Fotech’s LiveDETECT® smart transport management technology you can gain real-time visibility of the integrity and efficiency of your transport network by harnessing advanced artificial intelligence and edge computing to detect, classify and report on traffic and transport infrastructure with certainty.
Fotech’s DAS technology platform provides a full suite of capabilities for operators and system integrators within the railway industry including; broken rail and flat wheel detection, train tracking, and comprehensive trackside security and protection.

Our latest blog examines the main threats to subsea cables export, explaining how DAS technology takes the guesswork out of monitoring power and telecoms infrastructure.
Telecommunications fibre optic cables are an invisible yet vital infrastructure connecting people, businesses and machines. These fibres are often a company’s most valuable asset. But what if fibre optic cables could work harder, add value and be monetised by being more than simply a way to communicate?
Water pipeline leaks and damage can cost billions. Find out how DAS technology enables automated, real-time pipeline monitoring to safeguard water pipeline infrastructure.
Safeguarding telecoms cables against downtime and disaster is a difficult business – but evolving DAS technology plays an important role, as our blog explains.
