Paper Abstract

Fiber optic technology is now soundly established and accepted for future use in hundreds of worldwide applications. Through the 1970s, fiber optic components progressed from laboratory device status, through pilot production for trial systems, and are now moving into high volume production. Over the past decade, device performance improved by more than an order of magnitude while prices plummeted. Fiber optic cable systems now are less expensive than conductive cable in many major applications; witness the AT&T Northeast Corridor system.
