Paper Abstract

Jitter characterization for a portion of MCI's fiber optic network has been completed. Measurements were made to determine how many 405 Mb/s lightwave terminating equipment (LTE) can be cascaded before jitter accumulation would adversely affect the system performance. Parameters examined were maximum tolerable input jitter, intrinsic jitter, and jitter transfer function. Results demonstrate that jitter accumulates proportional to N.49, where N is the number of cascaded LTE sections. This implies that up to 1183 sections could be cascaded before jitter would become a problem in the system's performance. The results also show that MCI's system is operating within the jitter design objectives recognized by the telecommunications industry.
