Dark Fiber Becomes Smart Fiber
Dark fiber can be turned from dirt work to a business gold mine when automation and visibility are enabled. Dark fiber networks are operated often by a variety of players that piece together fiber routes from railway, utility, cities, private ownership and subsea cable landing sites. Bringing together fiber from so many different locations to create multi-state or multi-country networks is challenging under the best circumstances.
ROME brings two huge improvements from legacy operations: 1) automating today's manual process; 2) enabling accurate records of fiber assets.
Automation enables a further level of intelligence to manage dark fiber routes as a mesh network with end to end provisioning process while significantly increase the utilization and visibility of every segment and every strand of fiber. Dark fiber becomes a service and business enabler to data center and telco customers by using ROME.
