Paper Abstract

At present on the 'Rostelekom' communication network after three months service in various company branches, the trial operation of four monitoring systems have finished. Among them the special place is occupied by the Russian company 'Spectrum' remote fiber testing system (RFTS) 'Photon' having a number of essential differences from other analogues. During trial operation RFTS 'Foton' considerable material, which allows to evaluate quality of operation, was accumulated. For this purpose the results of automatic reflectograms comparison with standard (obtained on system installation step) are given in paper. Thus as a comparison test the value of attenuation deviation on supervising section by fiber length approximately 10 km was used. For finding the attenuation value on the analysis intervals (every reflectogram is divided into sections by length approximately 10 kms) the approximation by a method of two points is used. Results of measurements executed by Russian RFTS 'Photon' during 3 months experimental exploitation are represented.
