Fiber fault PON monitoring using optical coding: Effects of customer geographic distribution
Abstract—We analyze the performance of fiber fault monitoring of a PON using a centralized, passive optical coding (OC) system. We develop an expression for the detected monitoring signal, study its statistics, and contrast our OC monitoring system with standard optical code division multiplexing (OCDM) data communication. We derive a new closed form lower bound expression for the interference probability, and use this to find the signal-to-interference ratio (SIR). A service provider cannot control the physical layout of homes in a coverage area; measuring performance for one network layout would be insufficient to test our proposed monitoring system. Client geographic distribution has a significant impact on the SIR. We consider five different PON geographical distributions and study their effect on OC monitoring performance. Our results show that SIR is sufficient to successfully monitor the network. In addition, we find that the uniform radial (UR) distribution, an analyti...
