    Overview:

    W3 Holdings ITA is an Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the heart of the Amazon region of Brazil with unique network challenges. Not only did they need to provision and run a local access distribution network, but they have to monitor and maintain several long-haul spans, some up to 120 Km in length, in the most remote region of the country.

“Though we are a smaller ISP, we still need to maintain a highly reliable network, especially for our longest optical fiber cable spans. The Micro-OTDR SFPs… eliminate the detection time component of the cost of the mean-time-to-recovery (MTTR) from an optical network fault, resulting in considerable OPEX savings for our W3 Mega service.”

Network Architect, Jone Zanuzo

Challenges:

• Maintain competitive SLAs for expansive network infrastructure in remote Amazon region.
• Eliminate the cost of the detection time component of network MTTR.
• Stay within the CAPEX budget while meeting network monitoring requirements.
• Realize true OPEX savings by sending the right repair techs, to the right place, without delay.

Solution:

“To support our stringent service level agreements (SLAs), we need to monitor our optical fiber links in order to detect, locate and report any optical fiber faults, in real time, and within our budget”, Jone stated. “The Micro-OTDR SFPs, in conjunction with our network switches and custom operating software, eliminate the detection time component of the cost of the mean-time-to-recovery (MTTR) from an optical network fault, resulting in considerable OPEX savings for the W3 Mega service.”

Available in both Single-Fiber, Single-Wavelength, and Conventional Dual-Fiber configurations, the OZC family of Micro-OTDR SFP/SFP+ fiber optic transceivers, offers a cost-effective way to monitor optical fiber networks for both the largest, and the smallest, Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and ISPs.
