Efficient I&M Using Remote Operation

MX109020A Site Over Remote Access

Network Master Pro MT1000A/MT1040A (Ethernet/CPRI/OTDR Test Equipment) WLAN connectivity functions improve base station and optical line I&M work efficiency. Remotely located measuring instruments can be centrally managed over WLAN connections to cut job times (measurement, saving results, etc.) and unify report creation.

On-site Training for Diversified Testing

Base-station on-site work is becoming more complex with the spread of 5G services. More fiber runs, conversion to fronthaul Ethernet, and adoption of PTP supporting small-cell installations and CRAN, require new measurements, such as time synchronization.
On-the-job training by remote operation is an effective method for training experienced RF testing operators in how to perform optical transport tests.

High-Efficiency On-site Installation, Startup, and Maintenance

In-Office Maintenance

At in-office optical fiber (line) and network maintenance, periodic OTDR measurements can cut the fault risk rate. However, in a fiber emergency, sometimes it may be impossible to dispatch experienced engineers immediately on-site.

In these circumstances, experienced in-office staff can troubleshoot and resolve fiber line problems remotely by using the MT1000A/MT1040A WLAN connectivity function. In addition to troubleshooting, using WLAN connectivity for regular maintenance helps reporting to experienced staff at remote locations for integrated management to not only cut fault resolution times but also improve regular maintenance work efficiency.

Outdoor Maintenance

To operate a measuring instrument that is not on the LAN remotely, such as on-site, a connection must be made via a WAN. In this case, a communications device such as a mobile router with a carrier-contracted SIM must be provided.

However, this is not the only requirement because the office PC connection destination cannot be specified because the measuring-instrument IP address is unknown. Successful connection requires the following two additional preparations:

  1. Provision of a mobile router with a fixed IP address or a global IP address service contracted by the communications carrier
  2. Port forwarding settings enabled on the mobile router

Easy Connections Anywhere Using Site Over Remote Access (SORA)

Using the MX109020A Site Over Remote Access (SORA hereafter) software measuring instruments can be remotely controlled easily anywhere.
The SORA cloud-based service allows office users to log-in to an Internet webpage to control the measuring instrument from the office via a smartphone.

Uploads measurement reports to cloud storage

Can upload measurement-result reports to cloud storage via SORA.
Linking with the SEEK tool for automatic scenario creation facilitates automation of related processes such as settings, measurement start, pass/fail evaluation, measurement results reporting, etc. The connection between the tester and storage uses secure SSH or HTTPS.
