Paper Abstract

Development of fiber optic communications networks has continued in virtually all geographies of the world. Some calculate that expansion in the USA alone will continue to 2025. After that time there will maintenance, upgrade, and replacement. While some nations are more advanced than others and some enterprises more sophisticated than others, the undeniable reality is that previous networks will, in some fashion or another, include fiber optics. The future need is for speed and reliable bandwidth: lots of it. Decisions will be made based on new concepts that will enable far more data at far faster rates than once considered feasible or necessary. As the consumer enters the market with newly engineered home entertainment systems, additional burdens will be placed on both OEM and OSP. These are not negative challenges, but rather indicators of a new generation of consumers with awareness and demand far more advanced any may have imagined just a few years ago.
