Paper Abstract

Emerging services will need extensive fiber optic systems in interoffice and loop applications. New systems are being designed to meet these needs. Advances in technologies enable very high speed (several gigibits/second) transport systems in interoffice applications and in loop applications. Tins paper will overview fiber system failure data from field analysis, discuss two new reliability considerations, and highlight new reliability challenges facing Fiber-In-The-Loop (FITL).
