Huawei Shows Intelligent Optical Distribution Network

Huawei previewed an Intelligent Optical Distribution Network (iODN) prototype that aims to help network operators automatically locate and operate target optical fibers in large scale FTTH rollouts. The problem arises because the number of optical fibers being used in FTTH projects growing exponentially. This leads to a high error rate when optical fiber connection data is entered manually. There are also problems that occur when optical fibers are manually connected or optical faults are manually identified and located.

Huawei said its iODN prototype is able to address these challenges through intelligent optical fiber management, including setup and management of optical fiber connections. It automates the identification and the collection of optical fiber connections and splitters, ensures that optical faults are correctly located, improves maintenance efficiency, and simplifies and enhances operation and maintenance efficiency.

"FTTx networks are now being deployed on a massive scale all over the globe and ODN is garnering more and more attention from operators worldwide. This new prototype, along with our expertise in end-to-end ODN delivery, including planning and engineering, will pave the way for massive fiber to the home rollouts," said Wang Dexiang, Director of Huawei's ODN Service Department.
