Gpondoctor AutoFinderAudit all FTTH termination-OLT port pairings

I+M departments have to face the NIGHTMARE of troubleshooting FTTH deployments where customers are not connected to their assigned OLT ports stated in the planning and design documentation. Impacting on their resolution time and, as a consequence, on Telecom Operator’s OPEX.

GPONDoctor autofinder provides EXACT information about where each fiber is connected to. EASY TO USE, simply connect your smartphone, tablet or laptop via Wifi or cable to the autofinder. FAST, you will get in a minute all the details of your FTTH infrastructure installation.

AFFORDABLE, fully designed to meet the budget of I+M technicians

 

Fiber optic networks continues to multiply exponentially, and, in several regions, one every two homes already have an FTTH connection.

Several hundreds of millions of connections within the “Access Network” link the customer to its correspondent port within the Telecom Operator Headend.

Most Telecom Operators rely on contractors to deploy their fiber connections to the home. And though everything is well planned and executed, it is not rare to see customers not connected to the right port. Leading to differences from the documentation generated during the FTTH deployment planning and what is finally built.

These deviations are difficult to detect because the Network Management System will register and provision the services (HSI, IPTV, VoIP) to that customers as if they were in the right position.
However, when a customer not connected to the right port, call to the customer service for support or decides to move to another Service Provider — it will be difficult to find out where it is finally connected and provide the appropriate maintenance.

A situation that could be affordable for one user but as the number grows, it becomes a REAL NIGHTMARE for Installation and Maintenance (I+M) technicians leading to an uncontrolled OPEX.

Telco’s needs urgently to improve the Quality of their deployments. As there was not any proper tool for FTTH deployment auditing, most of the current alternatives have been designed Ad-Hoc. Some goes from the basic validation of the physical infrastructure by using power meters, OTDRs to others more complex involving the OSS and I+M departments, but………there was a demand for a SIMPLE and EFFICIENT tool for network auditing.

GPONDoctor autofinder is our answer. It is a handheld Test tool developed to be used by Fiber to the Home –GPON I+M Technicians.Fully designed for GPON deployment auditing. Its main advantage is the independency of the Installers that can get all installation details without the need to involve the FTTH Operator OSS department.

GPONDoctor autofinder allows to identify one of the most common problems during FTTH network deployments,  “Cross-Connections”. Through an easy to use GUI, it is capable to identify, in less than a minute, where any Fiber Termination within the PON distribution network (ODN) is connected to.

All the data collected by the GPONDoctor autofinder can feed any Cloud to complement all the data provided by the OSS. This will enable to have all the information required to identify any deviation from the planned deployment in order to get an “As-Built” documentation.

GPONDoctor autofinder aims to satisfy the common claim from installers: an AFFORDABLE, FAST and EASY to use Test tool that provides them in Real Time all the information possible at the installation site.

  • RX Power meter (as precise as standalone power meters)
  • ODN branch attenuation (how much power has been lost between the OLT and the Point where the measurement is taking place)
  • PON port where this Fiber termination is connected to
  • Geolocation of the Point of measurement
  • RE power/ Optic Class used

… and forget about complex GUIs, use your SMART PHONE, TABLET or LAPTOP and get the data directly from the GPONDoctor autofinder (either through WIFI or USB-C).

GPON Doctor autofinder is your Professional Test tool for FTTH network auditing and make Cross Connections become problem of the past

PON position independent

GPONDoctor Autofinder can be connected before or after the PON splitters. Only requirement is to be within the saturation and sensibility levels of Class B+ optics.

Real time GPON Auditing

Once the PONID presence is seen, GPONDoctor Autofinder turns ON a LED so that the installer realizes that a correct measurement has been taken. When the fiber is disconnected, the LED is automatically turned OFF getting ready for the next test.

PON Identifier Decoding

Each Telecom Operator might have its own way to interpret the PON ID. GPONDoctor Autofinder is ready to introduce the coding methodology of every Telco in order to decode it properly so that the installer gets the real meaning and not just a number.

Rx Power

GPONDoctor autofinder is capable to provide the GPON received power (in dBm) at the point of measurement. This feature is of special interested during the “Home passed” phase in order to be certain that there will be enough optical power when a subscriber is connected later. This feature avoids the need to have a power meter.

Geolocation

It is of prime importance to link the data related to the point of measurement with its geographical location. GPONDoctor autofinder gets automatically the GPS coordinates and also allows to include more specific details (like splitter reference and port).  Pictures can also be taken and added to the document.
