Paper Abstract

Very active research and development efforts are being carried out by many laboratories around the world for the transportation and distribution of high speed data towards the realization of a broadband communication network of the future. Various names have been used to describe this network, such as Broadband Integrated Service Digital Networks (B-ISDN), Integrated Broadband Communication Network (IBCN), and Information Network Systems (INS). The various types of services offered include video telephony, video teleconferencing, broadband videotex, high speed data and document transmission, retrieval of high definition graphics, text and data...Single mode fibers have become the ideal transmission medium for this application because of their extremely high information capacity. The technology for single mode fiber transmission using direct detection technology has been well developed and widely used for high capacity terrestrial as well as undersea trunking applications. Field trials as well as detailed studies of broadband distribution networks using direct detection technology over optical fibers have been reported by many organizations worldwide.
