Paper Abstract

The telecommunications industry is currently undergoing dramatic increases in the transmission capability, or 'bandwidth,' of both 'long-haul' and 'local area network' systems. These improvements are being enabled by advances in photonic and fiber optic technology that have increased the transmission capability by more than 100 fold over the past 8 years. This increased transmission capacity is being fueled by the near insatiable demand for internet data, video and other non-voice traffic over the telecommunications network.
