Remote, stand-alone unit

Fiber Guardian is an entirely stand-alone OTDR remote test unit, designed to enable you to start monitoring critical fibers without the larger investment required for a client-server RFTS application.

If any of these situations applies to you, Fiber Guardian is the ideal solution:

  • Must fulfill stringent support-level agreements that require a restoration time of less than a few hours or network/service availability of 99.99% or higher.
  • Need to measure and improve contractor efficiency throughout the restoration process.
  • Having difficulty finding qualified personnel for on-site troubleshooting.
  • Want to begin investing progressively, starting with the most vulnerable part of your network.

No Commitment, no hassles

Fiber Guardian is a plug-and-play solution that is simple enough for beginners, and powerful and flexible enough for your experts. The unit doesn’t involve any additional infrastructure—no server, no external PC—only minimal software maintenance is required. You can access it remotely from virtually anywhere by simply using your personal login user name and password, as with any secured server on your LAN or through a dial-up connection. There is no need for third-party remote-access tools such as Virtual Network Computing (VNC) servers or pcAnywhere, no hanging views and no unexpected disconnection in low-bandwidth situations—just a reliable HTTP session.

The main purpose of fiber network monitoring is to allow operators to find faults and degradations before subscribers do! With the proper equipment, operators can quickly identify problems and send field technicians to the appropriate location to solve them. This is why the ideal network monitoring solution will leverage a geographic information system (GIS) to correlate the optical information with the geographical positioning.
