Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the operational characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of implementing ring architectures for fiber optic local area networks. Different types of single and dual ring approaches are considered, as well as ring networks with novel connection architectures. Methods for the economical growth and upgrading of fiber optic ring systems are presented.
