This paper proposed a Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) network management system named Smart Access Network Testing, Analyzing and Database (SANTAD) for self protected and restored against fiber fault based on Visual Basic. SANTAD is the new upgraded values of recent FTTH technology toward the implementation of smart network, which involved in the centralized monitoring, failure detection, automatic recovery, and increases the survivability and maintainability of FTTH. The functionalities of SANTAD can be generally classified into preconfigured protection and post-fault restoration, consist of network system configuration management, degradation management, fiber fault management, and performance management that support its operations. One suggested in Point-to-Multipoint (P2PM) applications has been proposed with the experimental results as feasibility approach.
