A Telecommunications Network is a system of interconnected components and infrastructure that enables the transmission of information over long distances. The primary purpose of a telecommunications network is to facilitate communication between individuals, organizations, or devices by transmitting voice, data, and multimedia content.


Field Tests of Impulsive Acoustic Event Detection, Localization, and Classification Over Telecom Fiber Networks

We report distributed-fiber-optic-sensing results on impulsive acoustic events localization/classification over telecom networks. A deep-learning-based model was trained to classify starter-gun and fireworks signatures with high accuracy of > 99% using fiber-based-signal-enhancer and >97% using aerial coils.
