These systems are used in the monitoring of optical fiber networks because increasing security requirements and high expectations regarding the availability of digital services make online monitoring of the optical fiber as a transmission medium more and more of a necessity.
Fiber-optic Infrastructure Sensors for Monitoring Shafts, Pipes, and Control Rooms.
Infrastructure sensors are integrated into fiber-optic remote monitoring systems and use existing fiber-optic cables for signal transmission. Up to 80 sensors can be connected in series via a single fiber. This chain, depending on the dynamic range of the OTDR used, can be up to 100 km long. These maintenance-free components are, therefore, not only ideally suited for monitoring wide area networks but for use in data centers and metro and enterprise environments as well.
Resistant to inteference:
The sensors can be configured for shaft and door monitoring, as water detectors (water penetration alarm), and as an early warning in case of fire.
In terms of KRITIS legislation for telecommunications (as well as water and energy supply), this is an ideal tool for prevention in accordance with required prevention and certification regulations.
