VIAVI acquired Trilithic in August 2017, in a union of two complementary leaders in test and measurement. Multiple system operators (MSOs) and their contractors can now choose from a wide, unified selection of cable test instruments addressing technologies up to DOCSIS 3.1, and providing the long-term economic benefits of efficiently minimizing leakage in home networks.
Trilithic was founded in 1986 as an engineering and assembly company that built and designed customer-directed products for telecommunications, military, and
industrial customers. From its modest beginnings as a two-man engineering team, Trilithic grew over the years and broadened its offerings of RF and microwave components by adding broadband solutions to its product line. Broadband Instruments and Systems offering test, analysis, and quality management solutions for the major cable television systems worldwide.
Whether under or above ground, cabled or satellite, every type of network comes with its own challenges requiring a different set of test equipment and processes. Submarine networks are no exception. The long distances data is required to travel and the accident-prone underwater environment can make proper testing, maintenance, and repair of underwater networks especially difficult. With almost every aspect of our present-day lifestyle heavily reliant on a fast, reliable internet connection, making sure that these networks are in optimal condition is crucial to the continued functioning of our infrastructure and financial systems. In this blog, we take a look at the unique challenges presented by submarine networks and the equipment and strategies TMG uses to overcome them.
While many people probably think of satellites when we talk about data network systems, by far the majority of such systems are made up of underwater networks. According to a 2019 report by StableSeas, underwater cables actually carry around 97% of all the world’s internet and telecommunications data, and at last count (2020), there were over 1.2 million kilometres of active submarine cables around the world. With so much of our global infrastructure relying on these networks
The first difficulty engineers have to contend with when dealing with underwater cables is that they are subject to much higher levels of wear and tear than above ground cables typically are. Storms, saltwater infiltration and abrasion, and shifting ocean currents all contribute significantly to degradation of the hardware. Submarine cables are built to last around 25 years, but they are often retired earlier than this.
Aside from the slow-but-steady wear and tear they experience, underwater fibre networks are prone to a variety of unpredictable but relatively common occurrences. One of the biggest threats to these systems is posed by fishing activity, most commonly anchor dragging. Other hazards include natural disasters such as mudslides, tsunamis, and earthquakes. Although relatively rare and not considered a major threat, bites from aquatic animals like sharks and barracudas have been known to occasionally cause damage to underwater cables.
The first step to increasing the chances of a long lifespan and trouble-free operation of a submarine fibre network is to ensure that no faults or pollutants are present during construction. Even a single, small particle that finds its way into the fibre system can cause significant back reflection and other faults that will diminish network performance. TMG’s specialised underwater OTDR testing units from VIAVI are an invaluable tool for preventing faults during the construction phase. During activation, Optical Spectrum Analysers and Network Analysers are used to certify network performance.
There are many scenarios where you may need to qualify the wet plant when there is no SLTE (Submarine Line Terminal Equipment) present, for example:
There are three technical considerations:
From the original Multiple Application Platform (MAP) System released in 2001 to the new third generation MAP-300 Series, the MAP system is the heart of the VIAVI optical test solutions for labs and manufacturing. With unmatched scalability, users can be assured that our solutions will meet their current and future needs.
The new MAP-300 builds upon the proven strengths of the MAP System while adding innovation where it matters most for our customers. Backwards compatible support for the installed automation base, combined with several new features, including an HTML-based GUI for multi-user environments, gives customers the capabilities they need to achieve their goals.
What can I do with the MAP-300?
