Paper Abstract

It is expected that there would be various demands for digital capacity, from a few kilobits per second for such services as facsimile, data entry, and provision of audio and graphic for teleconferencing, to about 56Kb/sec for electronic mail and integrated work stations, and higher speeds for cable television, high resolution TV, and computer-aided engineering. Fiber optics has been proven-in from an economic standpoint to provide the above-mentioned services. This is primarily due to the fact that in less than five years optical line rates have leaped from 45Mb/s to gigabit rates, therefore reducing the cost per DS3 of capacity, and the price of high quality fiber cable has taken a nosedive.
