Paper Abstract

It is encouraging to see a meeting of experts gathering at this early point in the life of fiber optic systems to consider in technical depth the control of reliability. In the past reliability has often been a consideration left to relatively late stages of the development of a new technology. In the heat of the battle to achieve any kind of functionality for a new technology, it is hard to think ahead to achieving long, reliable 'lifetimes, but we must constantly remind ourselves to begin to solve this problem at the earliest point possible.
