What’s ODN Network Construction?
ODN Network Construction: Efficient and Digitalized Solutions
1.ODN network construction Introduction
The vision of the Fifth Generation Fixed Network (F5G) is to achieve Fibre to Everywhere. To realize this vision, it is essential to have a fast, flexible, and well-managed Optical Distribution Network (ODN) construction process.
Traditional ODN networking and construction face challenges such as low efficiency and disorganized resource management, leading to high costs. These challenges become more evident in low-density access scenarios where the deployment of optical fibers is both costly and inefficient. In the F5G era, ODN development should address these construction issues and enable flexible networking, rapid deployment, and visualized and manageable ODN systems.
2.ODN network construction Scope
To address these challenges, quick ODN construction and digital management solutions have been developed. These solutions enhance fiber deployment efficiency, enable digital resource management, and improve overall operation and management efficiency for carriers.
The system structure of the digitalized quick ODN includes pre-connectorized ODN product modules, digital labels, intelligent management terminals, and intelligent optical distribution network management systems.
While primarily applicable to intelligent optical distribution networks in access networks, it can also serve as a reference for other networks utilizing optical fiber connections. These optical distribution networks can gather ODN information through smart terminal devices, such as smartphones equipped with ODN management applications, and utilize digital labels within ODN devices.
For optical distribution networks that gather electronic label information through other methods, this document can be similarly referenced.
