Deutsche Telekom Picks Acterna for Remote Fiber Test System

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
STUTTGART, Germany, Sept. 27 -- Acterna said that Deutsche Telekom has selected Acterna's remote fiber test system, Atlas, for monitoring of its optical networks in six key regions across Germany. The decision to install a remote fiber test system (RFTS) for 24-hour monitoring of its entire fiber network is key to the Deutsche Telekom strategy for optimization of network availability and quality.

"Atlas was selected over other offerings for its high performance OTDR (optical time domain reflectometer), the functionality of its software and the ability to control a remote optical switch over the network," said Hans Sachs, Deutsche Telekom project leader. "Price was also an important factor. The Acterna system presents an excellent price-performance ratio. It ensures fast fault finding and minimum down time."

When installation is complete in autumn 2001, the Acterna remote fiber test system will be monitoring 800 dark fibers in the regions of Bayreuth, Dresden, Duren, Eschborn, Karlsruhe and Siegen.
