Abstract:   (527 Views)
The growing trend of technology and telecommunication industry has led to the use of optical systems to enable the transmission of high bandwidth information in remote locations. Due to the advantages of fiber optic communication platform over copper wire, fiber to home technology has recently emerged and many citizens are applying for fiber optic based internet. Installation and development of fiber-to-the-house technology requires consideration of several parameters, which are location-based and enable the electronic participation of citizens. On the other hand, this technology has expensive equipment that, if not properly distributed, can lead to financial losses of telecommunications and dissatisfaction of citizens. These problems can be reduced by using location-based analysis and a web-based system. The most important innovation of this research is the location and optimal allocation of fiber optic terminal in the form of a web-based spatial system. To optimize FAT location, it will be done in such a way that with the lowest number of FATs, the highest demand (coverage issue) is covered at the shortest distance from the fiber optic joints (middle issue). One of the advantages of the proposed system is the reduction of equipment installation time without face-to-face visits, reduction of telecommunication costs, honoring the client and optimal coverage of the service applicant. The results show that the applicants were 87% satisfied with the mentioned system and the range that was previously covered with two FATs and about 20 working days, was covered with a FAT in 7 working days using the proposed model.
