Paper Abstract

A cost-effective method of multiplexing, transmitting and selecting optical video signals is proposed and demonstrated by using appropriate combinations of bi-directional optical trunk- amplifiers, medium-density WDM and optical space switching techniques for rapid cost- effective construction. This paper describes the major factors affecting optical video transport/distribution system design. In particular, a tapping type optical loop-shaped trunk section network is proposed from the viewpoint of system reliability, probability of call-loss and ''B-ISDN with analog overlay''.
