nbn Trials Innovative DigitalAsset™️ To Monitor Fiber

FiberSense is proud to contribute our innovative sensing solution to a joint initiative with nbn to monitor and prevent accidental damage to the nbn fibre cable network.

In a three-month trial, nbn will use FiberSense DigitalAsset®️ to detect certain vibrational frequencies on fibre and link that data with artificial intelligence to determine whether the events detected are likely to lead to damage to the network. This would include the impact from excavation or other unauthorised digging activity near nbn’s fibre optic cables.

FiberSense on RNZ

We had an amazing level of interest regarding the world’s first capabilities that we are rolling out for earthquake early warning and enhanced community safety.

CEO and Founder Mark Englund was interviewed by Radio New Zealand (RNZ) where he discussed how we can now measure the scale of impact of a quake right down to a building-by-building level.

FiberSense technology is a game changer for how communities will respond to seismic hazards, provide advanced early warning systems, and turbo charge the quality of data to aid in detection and response of natural disasters.

FiberSense provides worlds first “building by building” impact calibration after recent NZ earthquake.

FiberSense has shared remarkable high-resolution results in its detection of the magnitude 5.8 Cook Strait earthquake that occurred 70 km NW of Wellington, NZ on 22 September.

Founder and CEO of FiberSense, Mark Englund said “Our DigitalSeismic sensing service that we have operating on fiber optic telecoms cables in Wellington detected a range of activity from the earthquake centred on the Cook Strait last week. We cross-referenced our measurements with the records of the official earthquake sensors and the results were remarkable – for the first time ever we’ve calibrated the impact of quakes down to a building-by-building analysis level.”

FiberSense at WEFTEC

Every two minutes a water main breaks somewhere in the U.S and an estimated 6 million gallons of treated water are lost each day.

The FiberSense team will be at #WEFTEC 2022 in #NOLA discussing how DigitalAsset™️ and our market leading fiber optic based monitoring and detection can make water networks more resilient and cut real costs of pipe strike and high-flow rate leaks.

FiberSense and SX announce expansion of alliance with deployment of monitoring and protection capability on new NEXT submarine cable between AUS, NZ, USA and the Pacific Islands.

FiberSense and critical infrastructure owner Southern Cross Cable Network (“SX”) have announced a further expansion of the world leading subsea cable monitoring capability in FiberSense’s DigitalAsset™️ Marine. The announcement follows SX’s recent activation of their new Southern Cross NEXT (“NEXT”) submarine cable connecting Australia, New Zealand, the USA and the Pacific Islands. NEXT utilizes DigitalAsset™️ Marine coverage on the shore-end network, all the way from the cable landing station to the first repeater.

DigitalAsset™️ Marine technology operates over an “in-use” fiber pair allowing SX to utilise the full potential of the submarine cable for clients.

The rest of the submarine sector looks closely at innovations that the Pacific based cable operators are adopting and once again, SX is at the forefront of showing just what further protection measures are possible in operating this critical communications infrastructure.
