Testing and Analysis of Local Area Optical Networks

Objective

Many of the established methods known at the beginning of the project for testing point-to-point optical fibre links were ineffective when applied to complex topologies. The objectives of TALON were to improve this situation by investigating methods and, if possible, specifying instruments.
Many of the established methods known at the beginning of the project for testing point to point optical fibre links were ineffective when applied to complex topologies. The objectives of testing and analysis of local area optical networks (TALON) were to improve this situation by investigating methods and, if possible, specifying instruments.

A multifunction tester, based on optical fibre domain reflectometry (OFDR) techniques, was successfully designed, built and tested. The principle was proven and the applicability of this technique to local area networks (LAN) with complex topologies was evaluated.
