Indonesian converged network operator XL Axiata, says it is using the VIAVI ONMSi Optical Network Management System to increase visibility into its fibre network.
VIAVI Solutions Inc. a provider of test, monitoring and assurance solutions, points out that, as XL Axiata prepares to deploy 5G technology, a robust fibre network is crucial to enabling high-speed, reliable data transport from the core to the edge.
The network operator has made significant investments in its optical fibre backbone in recent years, extending network reach and expanding service offerings. To ensure the integrity and performance of its network, XL Axiata selected VIAVI remote fibre test and monitoring to identify, locate and quickly rectify fibre faults, degradation or accidental damage.
Part of the family of VIAVI remote test and monitoring solutions, ONMSi enables centralised management and real-time visibility end-to-end across the fibre plant to automatically locate fibre faults and degradations, thus, VIAVI says, significantly improving performance and uptime while increasing workforce productivity.
ONMSi detects even minor degradation when no outage is present, such as dirty connectors and crushed or bent fibres, which can lead to signal impairment. In addition, the collection of rich network performance data offers insights that can be used to optimise maintenance operations and plan capacity enhancements.
