Paper Abstract

The Ethernet local area network (LAN) is briefly described in its standardised IEEE 802.3 form, and opportunities for applying fibre optics are reviewed, both as enhancements of a coaxial network and as a complete fibre optic network. An inter-repeater link is described for interconnecting coaxial segments. Various alternatives are considered for implementing a full fibre network, and it is shown why the active hub approach is preferred.
