Paper Abstract

Optical fiber line systems operating in the first window (0.854μm) are longer experimental systems. Such systems have been installed and put into traffic in numerous places all over the Brazil as well as the world. They are used primarily in urban areas and in combination with digital switches. The optoelectronic technology is now advancing very fast. According to the multimode system consideration, the application to short haul routes, including interoffice trunks, appears to be most attractive today. In particular, non-repeatered systems between offices are of benefit to solve anticipated construction and maintenance problems in an urban area. We have developed a very compact 8 Mbps system to be used in interoffice trunks where special properties of optical fiber systems are required for such as the possibility for nonmetallic cables for interconnection of power plants to the public network, high electromagnetic disturbances which rule out conventional systems and others.
