Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic local area network, named Fibernet II, has been demonstrated. Fibernet II has been designed for use with the channel access discipline known as carrier-sense multiple-access with collision-detection. The detection of data packet collisions is necessary for Ethernet, a coaxial cable local area network, which uses statistical arbitration to coordinate net access. Plug compatible with Ethernet at the transceiver cable interface, Fibernet II can extend an existing Ethernet installation or can serve as a stand alone Ethernet, replacing coaxial cable with fiber cable. Fibernet II is a five channel prototype active-star configured network operating at a 10M Bit/s data rate. Fibernet is designed for modular growth to enable easy network expansion.
