SUNET deploys Adtran’s ALM fiber monitoring solution

May 28, 2024
The solution will allow SUNET to passively monitor its national backbone network.

Adtran announced on May 28 that its advanced link monitoring (ALM) in-service solution has been deployed by the Swedish University Computer Network (SUNET), Sweden’s 8400 km research and education (R&E) network. 

The company reports that its ALM solution will enhance network resilience and operational efficiency by giving SUNET’s maintenance team real-time insight into the network and the ability to identify precise locations of fiber issues.

Stuart Broome, Adtran’s general manager of EMEA sales, said in a press release, “SUNET is a world-class high-capacity optical transport network connecting over 110 organizations and serving a community of 750,000 students, teachers, and researchers across Sweden and beyond. The deployment of our ALM platform, with its passive fiber monitoring capabilities, has built even more resilience into this crucially important infrastructure, rendering services more reliable and streamlining operations.”

Adtran’s ALM solution proactively and passively monitors the network and can detect and pinpoint abnormal attenuation, fiber breaks, tapping attempts, and other issues.
