In this study, a geographic information system (GIS)-based novel fiber network monitoring system has been developed to improve the operation and maintenance of fiber optic networks (FONs). The main aim of the developed system is to provide the required capabilities for both detailed digital modeling and central monitoring of FONs. The system can perform scheduled measurements and dispatch alarms if any fault or degradation is detected in the concerned FON. It also indicates the alarm locations on a map as a considerable contribution to decreasing mean time to repair. The developed monitoring system has more security features than others.
