The first stage of the construction of the deep underwater neutrino telescope Baikal-GVD is planned to be completed in 2024. The second stage of the detector deployment is planned to be carried out using a data acquisition system based on fiber optic technologies, which will allow for an increased data throughput and looser, more flexible trigger conditions, thus maximizing the neutrino detection efficiency. A dedicated experimental string has been built and deployed at the Baikal-GVD site to test the new technological solutions. We present the principle of operation and the results of in-situ tests of the experimental string.
