Paper Abstract

Present DS-3 optical interfaces convert the Bell compatible bipolar signal from a multiplexer to a scrambled NRZ format prior to driving the laser transmitter. Bipolar optical transmission is now a reasonable alternative to scrambled NRZ transmission due to improved sources which possess increased linearity, lower thresholds, and better temperature stability. This paper discribes the advantages, disadvantages, and system considerations of a bipolar optical interface.
