Westfalen Weser Netz saves cost, avoids outages with ADVA ALM fiber assurance
MUNICH – ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that Westfalen Weser Netz has deployed its ALM fiber monitoring technology for precise, real-time insight into its regional metro network. The solution gives the municipal utility provider complete infrastructure assurance. Now it can instantly detect and rapidly repair fiber breaks with minimal disruption. The ADVA ALM enables Westfalen Weser Netz to dramatically shorten repair cycles and enhance network performance. It also means far fewer truck rolls and significant savings on fuel cost. The technology integrated seamlessly into Westfalen Weser Netz's cableScout management software provided by ADVA's partner JO Software Engineering GmbH.
The ADVA ALM is now delivering passive, in-service monitoring of Westfalen Weser Netz's fiber links. The simple, plug-and-play device offers several key advantages for utility network assurance. Its fanless operation and compact, low-energy design reduce opex and environmental impact. It’s also a highly robust solution ready to be installed in almost any location.
