Paper Abstract

Multimode fiber is increasingly being used in high data rate (> 100 Mb/s) systems with both short (< 2 km) and long (> 2 km) system fiber lengths. Obtaining reliable system performance at an economical price in these types of applications requires more precise multimode link design methodologies than previously required for low data rate, short length implementations. The Telecommunications Industry Association/Electronics Industry Association (TIA/EIA) Working Group FO-2.2 generated a draft Multimode Fiber Optic Link Design Standard to address any multimode fiber optic system application up to 500 Mb/s. This paper discusses the approaches used in the draft TIA/EIA Multimode Fiber Optic Link Transmission Design Standard and shows a comparison of the system performance predicted using the standard versus actual system performance for several simple implementations.
