Paper Abstract

The complex nature of the optical distribution system has delayed the ubiquitous deployment of fiber in the local loop. The shared resource approach, using either bus or splitter architectures, ameliorates these limitations. Growth of fiber into the local distribution loop requires new packaging schemes that avoid significant changes to deployment or craft practices. A modular approach is presented that violates neither appearance nor installation practices. The design allows for service upgrade, from POTS to video and BISDN.
