Paper Abstract

The evolving Fibre Distributed Data Interface standard (FDDI) makes effective use of fibre-optic technology in order to provide high performance data links between digital equipment. Future enhancements to the FDDI standard are planned to support simultaneous voice and data transfer, thus providing a powerful communications system over the local area. The implementation and adoption of FDDI relies on the availability of reliable fibre-optic components. This paper describes the components available and discusses their conformance to the FDDI standards. Future developments and applications of FDDI are discussed.
