This paper proposes a maintenance method for optical fiber cable networks that uses 1650-nm wavelength band light. We determined the maintenance wavelength of 1650-nm after considering the maintenance system requirements and the future trends in optical transmission systems. We improved the conventional maintenance system by adding appropriate system components including a narrow wavelength light source and a fiber-grating filter for the 1650-nm wavelength band. We designed the system and undertook manufacturing trials. The characteristics of our proposed maintenance method indicate good practical performance levels
