Paper Abstract

The subscriber loop accounts for between 25% to 50% of the fiber optic cable installed by many operating telephone companies and represents one of the fastest growing markets for fiber optic systems. The increasing complexity of subscriber loop systems coupled with the unique requirements of these applications presents an interesting set of design and operational requirements. Addressing these issues during the planning stages of the system not only facilitates the cable installation but also provides a viable network with flexibility for future growth and expansion. This paper discusses the topologies being used in fiber optic subscriber feeder systems, the design and operational issues and concerns, and offers a solution presently being used by many operating companies.
