Researchers are studying ways to use existing fiber-optic cables as distributed sensors to collect data on city road conditions. Verizon and NEC recently conducted a proof-of-concept field trial
A recent proof-of-concept field trial from Verizon and NEC demonstrated the ability “to use network infrastructure with existing fiber-optic cables already laid in the ground as distributed optical sensors to collect information on city traffic patterns
Vehicle counts, traffic slow-downs and other pieces of data central to traffic management may one day be gleaned from a city’s fiber-optic communications network. Verizon and technology company NEC have been leading research into the concept of turning a fiber network into one big sensor
NEC Corporation and Verizon were able to use network infrastructure with existing fiber optic cables already laid in the ground as distributed optical sensors to collect information....first time and longest distance that such sensing data has been collected through an operational telecom network
This week, the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) held the 2017 Fiber Connect Conference and Expo, joined by over 1,400 FTTH professionals across the fiber industry. As part of the annual event, the Fiber Broadband Association honored the extraordinary organizations and individuals...
