Paper Abstract

Widespread application of optical fiber technology to short-distance transmission networks is presently hindered by higher costs than existing alternative technologies. Cost reduction can be an important benefit of the design methodology for these systems. This paper proposes a simple, yet accurate design methodology that can reduce system costs based upon technical characteristics of optical fibers designed for local networks. We propose the measurement techniques necessary to implement the method.
