DAS/P-OTDR/OPM Full-Duality or Stand-Alone UnitFOSA webinar presented by new member Go!Foton

Today’s DAS-OTDR-OPM implementations are powered by single standalone units wherein the main optical trace energy mostly passes through the fiber, wasted, and only a small portion of the energy is Rayleigh backscattered. But because the RBS pulse is asymmetrical – especially when the OTDR signal is scattered from the fiber splicing joint – the asymmetric artifacts thereby produced can represent challenging confounders for managers and technicians tasked with analyzing the state of the network. Current DAS-OTDR-OPM deployments are effective enough as inert network sensors but will be unable to serve as robust analytical engines for the fully meshed optical-neuron network applications of the future.

Inspired by the particle nature of quantum entanglement, Go!Foton now introduces the concept of Duality for DAS, P-OTDR, and OPM. Go!Foton Duality emulates the conceptual quantum framework and creates a practical application for an analogous process in the optical domain, enabling the collection and AI assessment of upper layer data instead of allowing it to be merely dissipated. At the most practical level, Dual DAS can facilitate the conversion of buried invisible optical fiber cable assets into artificially visible and fully manageable “Cloud on the Ground” network assets. This webinar will be presented by Dr. David Z. Chen.

Dr. David Z. Chen

Dr. David Z. Chen joined Go!Foton in June, 2018, as Chief Technology Officer. David is a veteran of Verizon Communication Inc. (1995-2017). During his 23 years of service, David worked as a Computer Server Farm/Data-Center IT-manager, Verizon Corporate Advanced Technology Fellow and Distinguished Member of Technical Staff supporting the technology development/advancement of ULH, Metro and Access, and Verizon Passive Optical Component/System quality control manager.

David has published many industry record breaking ULH field trial papers, and he has been granted numerous USA patents. At Verizon, he led the industry into the new Ultra-Bend-Insensitive fiber (G.657-B3) invention, improved new Dry-Filler based OSP cables, perfected Air-Jetted-Cable deployment for densely populated cities, contributed MDU drop to In-Living-Unit fiber cable design and related optical termination products. Jointly, David has been working with Telcordia and other industry leading optical fiber/system vendors in the multiple Telcordia GR based quality control/testing/standard documentation revisions. He also contributed to the industry on Space-Division-Multiplex technology development with over 200 USA patents granted.

David holds a BS degree in precision mechanics and optical instrument from Shanghai Science and Technology University, two Master and a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics with the focus on Quantum/Nonlinear Optics, Modern Chaos theory, and computational analysis for quantum stability and Higgs Boson from University of Texas at Dallas.
