Optiical time domain reflectometry (OTDR)
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.
