An OTDR event dataset
A monitoring data, which includes several OTDR traces incorporating various types of fiber events (e.g. reflective, non-reflective, merged events) induced along an optical fiber link, is provided. Different fiber faults such as fiber cut, and fiber bend are modeled using optical components such as connectors and variable optical attenuators (VOAs). The data can be used to train machine learning models for solving fiber fault diagnosis problems.
The data folder contains a number of raw OTDR traces that include several fiber events induced by placing optical components (e.g. open physical contact (PC) connector, an open angled physical contact (APC) connector). The experimental setup used to record the OTDR traces is stated briefly in the documentation file.
Each OTDR trace file contains the traveled distance (first column) and the returned power (the second column). Each OTDR file's name incorporates the values of the various OTDR configuration settings used to generate the OTDR waveform. For more information, documentation file.
