Paper Abstract

The growing deployment of fiber optics which are vulnerable to single point failure creates an urgent need for a means of automatic protection switching test access and reconfiguration in telephone networks. Fiber switching is a technology which is beginning to be used in trunk and subscriber ioop applications to satisfy this need. This paper focuses on several applications of fiber switching in public networks including the economic and technical advantages of this technology.
