Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes the state-of-the-art operational and reliability characteristics of fiber optical components typical of those used in optical transmission systems. Standby requirements for vulnerable components are evaluated by using this data in relevant reliability formulae developed for fiber optic systems having a redundant design.
