Paper Abstract

A low cost, clamp-on coupler has been developed for use with fiber optic local area networks that employ a ring topology. The coupler takes the place of both connectors and optical relays required in ring networks. Macrobends in the optical fiber enable the pro-cessors to extract and launch signals from the ring without cutting the fiber.
