Paper Abstract

The cross impact of key standard access protocols on fiber-optic-configured topologies for local area network (LAN) applications is examined. A taxonomy of topologies and access techniques for fiber optic local area networks is developed. Network performance criteria and the key parameters affecting fiber optic networks are identified. These parameters are used to develop a methodology to enable the selection of an optimum fiber optic topology for a particular access protocol and application. Critical components required for the realization of a fiber-optic-based LAN are discussed.
