This study is aimed at suggesting optical communication equipment that can deliver high quality video information in high speed, to efficiently handle the flood and water pollution in the river basin. This system is cheaper than existing equipment, and can monitor optical Internet as well as the condition of equipment. Generally, the communication equipment to prevent flood is installed in an unmanned control box and operated by the flood control office situated at the fiver mouth in a long distance section. Therefore, it is hard to promptly cope with communication interruptions, which occur by the cutting or aging of the optical cable. Under the circumstances, this study suggested an efficient system that can deliver high quality video information in high speed (Optical Transmission Convert System) by using optical fiber. The system also solves problems by making use of automatic protection switching (APS) when an accident happens. Its real-time monitoring function gives notice of the problem-occurring points. The system is expected to be widely used in various areas such as intelligent traffic systems.
