CPqD Optical Supervision is a powerful solution for fiber optics infrastructure supervision. It guarantees the automatic diagnosis of transmission system failures by identifying their nature and location precisely, and significantly reducing the time of repair concerning the entire optical network (CPqD's solution allows a reduction from two hours and a half to approximately 30 minutes for repair execution). Thus, even before an interruption in communication services occurs, the system takes action and prevents the final user from realizing that there is a problem in the network. It is more than a simple economy issue. It is a matter of providing companies with the security that is necessary for a perfect infrastructure performance.
Another advantage is concerned with taking preventive actions in relation to degradation processes, avoiding therefore a reduction in service quality.
The leading Brazilian experts in this technology are the ones who produce CPqD Optical Supervision, a solution of plural functions, such as:
-Notification - via e-mail or cell phone - sent to the technicians in charge of maintenance
-Automatic recognition of the alarm and its corresponding preview
-Failure intensity identification
-Customized reports concerning the optical network of the company
-Follow-up of signal transmission degradation
-Diagrams of transmission and termination routes in central offices
-History of each cable containing information about checked occurrences
-Signal supervision made by customers who use DWDM equipment
-Internet measurement module
Due to its open platform - compatible with equipment provided by different suppliers -, the system grants greater negotiation freedom to the purchasing area of the company and to the resulting economy.
CPqD Optical Supervision has 70% of the market share among the Brazilian fixed service providers: Telefonica, Telemar and Brasil Telecom stand out from among its main customers. In Spain, the solution monitors the optical networks surrounding Madrid's metropolitan area, and managed by Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT), which is a part of the Ministry of the Interior of the Spanish government. In Uruguay, the Administración Nacional de Usinas y Transmisiones Eléctricas adopted the Brazilian solution aiming at the modernization of its two thousand kilometers of optical networks.
