Paper Abstract

Recent progress and concentration of efforts in fiber optic technology for the subscriber networks will make it attractive for the deployment of fiber optic cable for residential and small business customers to support future broadband-ISDN requirements. This paper describes a systematic approach for the deployment of the required fiber cable and associated hardware in the distribution and drop portions of a subscriber network. Furthermore, discussions on an optimum architecture will be included for flexibility, reliability, maintainability and underlying economic factors which will allow for a graceful evolution to a subscriber fiber optic network.
