AbstractSince the introduction of lightwave systems in the late 1970’s, they have become widely deployed for long-haul, interoffice, loop and private network transmission. With lightwave’s advantages of large bandwidth and quality of service they are becoming the medium of choice to carry voice, data, and video. With the high capacity of lightwave systems and the types of services carried, it is important to be able to detect, isolate, and repair troubles quickly to minimize or eliminate service impairment. This paper discusses remote maintenance support for high capacity lightwave systems from a network point of view in order to minimize service impairment, and to maximize the usage of trained operators. Specifically it addresses what functionality is needed for an operation system in today’s environment to provide the tools necessary to maintain the growingly complex lightwave networks of the future.
