Paper Abstract

Single mode fiber optic transmission systems have attracted special interest due to the numerous advantages over the metallic based systems : repeater snan exceeding 30 km, high capacity to volume ratio and easier future evolution since the transmission line should remain unchanged. The current status of the long haul-high rate optical systems in France is described and particularly the monomode experimental link operating at 560 Mbit/s and 1.5μ . A summary will be given of the implementation schedule of the high bit rate systems and some critical characteristics will be discussed as well as the installation problems encountered thus far.
