Paper Abstract

Fibers installed in local area networks (LAN) provide a wide bandwidth path for distribution of many and varied services, such as, voice, voice and data, video, and combined integrated services. Total optical connection requirements for low loss cost effective LAN premises and campus systems include (i.e., simple office building to a multi-floor multi-customer LAN to a campus LAN made up of premises and outside cabling and distribution): (1) flexible rearrangement, (2) node or terminal pass-by protection, (3) small to large fiber count cables, (4) varied environment and (5) tapering. Typical star or hybrid LANs may be highly tapered; that is, many communication paths near the central switching node or remote terminal and fewer near the most remote customer. This tapering requires many different types of connections for dropping off fibers and branching to different fiber count cables.
