The field trial was conducted over a tier-1 carrier's metro central office (CO) network. The deployment was comprised of a distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) system located inside of the CO….To provide sensing comparison between telecom-grade and AcoustiSens fibers in numerous environments….
"We showed, for the first time, that with the increased backscatter intensity from AcoustiSens fiber, interrogators can now remotely monitor facilities, backhauled through long metro distances, without significant degradation of signal integrity," said Daniel Peterson, Director of Network Architecture at OFS. "This enables municipalities and clustered data-center zones to use a single interrogator to monitor multiple remote locations."
