Abstract
The in-service loss monitoring of branched fibers in passive optical networks (PONs) is demonstrated in the field for the first time. End-reflection assisted Brillouin analysis employing a frequency shift averaging technique compensated for the variation in the Brillouin gain profile of installed optical cables. Complete loss monitoring for individual branched fibers in deployed PONs was successfully achieved.
