Interlink Telecom, a major telecommunication services provider in Thailand, has selected the VIAVI T-BERD/MTS-4000 V2 Optical Test Platform to support building, certifying, maintaining and troubleshooting the carrier's fiber optic network.
Interlink Telecom PCL delivers a range of telecommunication services throughout Thailand and across Southeast Asia, supporting enterprise data, video and voice transmission and internet connectivity, as well as enabling backhaul transport for a number of mobile network service providers. Seeking to further grow their 30 percent market share, Interlink Telecom PCL also has expanded into the data center market, offering server storage space and disaster recovery services to meet mission-critical big data transmission needs. To accommodate this initiative as well as overall growth in demand for bandwidth, the carrier launched a new fiber optic network in 2013.
A primary objective for the operator's new fiber network was to offer stable, secure, uninterrupted connectivity and data security. To that end, Interlink Telecom PCL was seeking a comprehensive solution for Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) testing, which has become an essential process for building, certifying, maintaining and troubleshooting fiber optic systems.
Also included in the agreement is StrataSync, a hosted, cloud-based solution that provides asset, configuration, and test data management for VIAVI instruments.
