We propose an integrated smart cable operation system and its architecture for the future cable network. In the proposed architecture, an application programs and various modules are loosely coupled using a cable operation system platform. We anticipate the task flows for the future optical cable network operation in order to realize the proposed system and architecture. Each task flow is broken down into `atomic tasks.' The task flow can be changed easily by combining these atomic tasks. We use an object-oriented design for designing the cable operation system platform. As a first step towards the construction of the proposed system a pre-prototype system was constructed and the results are shown.
