chaos caused when the two main submarine cables carrying internet traffic into and out of Vietnam, Cambodia and Lao PDR suffered…problems…still looking for [the fault] weeks [later]…DAS can detect disturbances and pinpoint the exact location of the fault - allowing operators to respond decisively
Fotech Solutions’ Stuart Large presented the webinar “The million sensors you didn’t know you already have, the unexpected value of a city’s fiber revealed” to SmartCities World
Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions, said, “The findings of this research not only demonstrate that the appetite for smart city progress remains strong, they also highlight the need for more practical approaches to creating smart city systems
With a fiber alongside a motorway, DAS can provide full continuous monitoring of the entire motorway – providing additional detecting capabilities to spot disruptions in the flow of traffic and changing behavior in the vehicles.
Enabling smart highways, not just smart motorways, with DAS
Distributed Acoustic Sensing data can help create the smart cities of the future – and there are huge benefits to incorporating DAS into city management systems. However, one of the questions we get asked the most is how DAS integrates with existing data collection methods and analysis platforms
