Paper Abstract

This paper discusses components that are currently available for the physical layers of local area networks to be installed during the 1990s assuming that bit rates greater than 1 GBps-km are needed and that suitability for high-volume manufacturing is an important consideration. Components of this type include single mode fiber and laser diodes which have become widely used in longhaul telecommunications systems. Integrated optics and optical amplifiers offer additional capabilities in the areas of high-speed switching network couplers and taps and control of signal amplitude. 1
