Acterna has announced that fiber network operators now have a network management solution that makes it easy to retrieve, cross-reference and share information among multiple users.

Providing a bird's eye view of the network and information on demand, the Optical Fiber Mapping (OFM) software delivers an inside look at the outside plant and can hone in on the exact location of faults, outages, affected nodes and customer sites, as well as shed light on the entire fiber optic network.

Residing on a PC or laptop, the OFM software enables customers to address the state of the network from their fingertips. This automated mapping, facilities management, and geographic information system (AM/FM/GIS) application consolidates data entered manually or through other applications. All fiber optic network documentation including fiber route maps, distribution panel graphics, OTDR traces, and PMD and CD measurements can be retrieved, cross-referenced and shared among multiple users. Network operators have access to all of their networks' geographic and functional components and can track, document and monitor an unlimited number of circuit wavelengths for each physical fiber path while O&M staff can initiate queries from any physical point in the network, including the field.

The product can be used as a standalone software package installed on any desktop PC or integrated for use within the company's Optical Network Management System (ONMS). The system is DWDM ready and its open architecture provides scalability within the ONMS platform as well as easy integration with other applications.
