With more than 1.3 million km of subsea telecoms cables across the globe, offshore cable networks are a hugely valuable asset. Protecting them from damage is essential, to your revenue, reputation and customers.
But locating, testing and repairing subsea damage or outages can be extremely difficult, costly and dangerous.
DFOS (Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing) technology is a smart, fast and accurate way to automate subsea telecoms cable monitoring. It ensures that even in the most remote, deep subsea terrains you always have immediate intelligence on the integrity of your telecoms network.
LiveDETECT II® gives Fotech’s customers a real-time, automated way to monitor subsea telecoms cables twenty-four hours a day, every day. Harnessing the power of acoustic fibre optic sensing, LiveDETECT II® ensures business and service continuity by:
Fotech, known for bespoke service, works with each individual customer to build a tailor-made subsea cable monitoring solution. Our telecoms DFOS monitoring comprises three advanced modules for a 100% reliable monitoring solution. Modules can be added and adapted to your growing telecoms network. The solution consists of:
Combining one or more Helios® interragotor and Panoptes alarm servers, co-located in a rack.
We can expand LiveDETECT II® as your fibre optic network expands, by combining multiple Helios® modules together.
Our Panoptes Alarm Management Server remotely monitors subsea telecoms cables, even in the most remote offshore environments. Panoptes operates a green/amber/red warning system so that you always know whether your telecoms cables are protected.
LiveDETECT II® automatically monitors the entire length of the fibre optic cable and communicates data in real time, equipping operators to:
