Onshore Telecoms Monitoring with DAS and AI

Onshore fibre optic telecoms networks are an essential tool for modern life. So, operators need to guarantee connectivity uptime 365 days a year.

Fotech’s global customers choose LiveDETECT®, our Distributed Acoustic Sensing technology, as the solution they trust to monitor their networks, detect issues within minutes, and alert to the location and nature of the disturbance.

You can then act before the problem becomes a business-critical issue.

LiveDETECT® also offers the opportunity to add value to onshore and subsea fibre optic cables. It turns your cable into a sensor that monitors co-located infrastructure, including pipelines, perimeters, borders and traffic and railway systems.

Monitor and Protect Your Telecoms Networks

LiveDETECT II® is a modular system that is fast to install and integrates with your own security systems and maintenance infrastructure to protect against:

  • Telecoms cable outages due to damage, wear or tear
  • Accidental damage caused by events near the cable, such as building or excavation
  • Illegal interference including theft or malicious cable damage
  • Flashover damage caused by manual diagnostic cable testing
  • Customer service outages caused by cable theft, damage, or interference

 

Onshore Telecoms Use Case

Perimeter Security
LiveDETECT II® combines Fotech’s Helios DAS® and Panoptes hardware on a modular basis to protect and monitor your telecoms cable networks twenty-four hours a day. DAS sends thousands of pulses of light along the fibre optic every second, which are then returned back to the unit as backscatter. DAS then detects and analyses any disturbance to the light, assigning a unique acoustic signature to each disturbance and filtering out irrelevant events. These vast quantities of data are fed back to the Panoptes server, which deploys AI and machine learning to warn you about the telecoms cable disturbance and the nature of the disturbance straight away. Your teams can then deliver a fast, safe response to correct the problem.

 

 

Telecoms Cable Monitoring that Expands with your Network

LiveDETECT® II is a fully configurable solution. As well as integrating with your own telecoms monitoring systems (such as CCTV or UAV integration), Fotech’s DAS telecoms cable monitoring technology consists of three powerful modules installed along the length of the fibre optic cable. As your network grows, more modules can be added. The result is a tailor-made solution that monitors every inch of your telecoms network, day and night, all year round. The three powerful modules are:

Advanced Telecoms Cable Monitoring:

Combining a single or multiple Helios® DAS and Panoptes alarm server, co-located in a rack.

Modular Fibre Optic Telecoms Cable Sensing:

LiveDETECT II® is designed to expand along the length of your fibre optic cables, by networking multiple Helios® DAS modules together.

Real-Time Telecoms Damage and Outage Detection:

The Panoptes Alarm Management Server facilitates remote monitoring of telecoms cables, operating a risk severity analysis so that you are alerted to not just the disturbance, but also the likely severity of the event.
