“As the Edge network and member base expands, we continuously strive to enhance our reliability and client experience. To do so, Edge has relied on ADVA technology for years and we count on leveraging their continued innovation to benefit our members. ADVA’s ALM assurance solution delivers real-time info on the quality of our fiber. It tells us exactly where repairs are needed, and that has proven to be a big help in terms of time and cost savings. In the past, we might know there was a problem causing intermittent disruption somewhere between New York and Philadelphia, for example. It could take days to find using traditional manual OTDR testing. Now we can react quickly and accurately, and there’s no more time wasted on site visits,” said a spokesperson for Edge. “The ALM lets us troubleshoot issues before they impact end users and deliver even more robust and efficient services, helping our customers advance research, education and economic development across the region.”

The ADVA ALM maximizes resource efficiency by providing comprehensive fiber health assurance. It now instantly alerts Edge to any fiber breaks or abnormal attenuation. The solution is also helping bolster network security by notifying maintenance teams of tapping attempts. The non-intrusive service-agnostic device identifies the exact geographic location of events through an intuitive graphical user interface. Featuring fanless operation and low-power consumption, the ultra-compact ALM enhances operational efficiency and sustainability across Edge’s infrastructure.

“The Edge network is a vital resource for the scientists, educators and healthcare providers they serve. We’re proud to support its team as they deliver even more to help organizations digitize their operations and achieve their strategic goals,” commented John Scherzinger, SVP of sales, Americas at ADVA. “Our ALM solution provides Edge with an intricate understanding of its optical fiber infrastructure. The tiny device has already had a big impact, helping the service provider diagnose and remedy issues while making maintenance easier and more environmentally friendly.”
