This paper proposed a fault localization and supervisory (SV) channel implementation for linear-repeaters (L-Reps) employing optical line amplifiers. In order to successfully introduce L-Reps into a Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH)/Synchronous Optical Network (SONET)-based networks in a smooth, orderly fashion, layering of repeater section and supervisory system design must be taken into consideration. There supervisory techniques, such as linking analog-based and digital-based information, a precedence of digital-based information and an upstream precedence, for locating faulty L-Rep sections are proposed taking into consideration the difference in monitoring capabilities between L-Reps and regenerating-type repeaters (R-Reps). Furthermore, a linear repeater supervisory (LSV) channel configuration for L-Reps is also proposed. Finally, an SV system established in a prototype SDH-based 10-Gbit/s optical transmission system is briefly described.
