Paper Abstract

Various architectures for optical distribution of digital data streams in large-capacity earth stations are described, analyzed, and compared. The distribution schemes are evaluated with respect to their optical power requirements, synchronization requirements, electrical and optical component costs, development costs, and complexity. A modular star distribution network emerges as the most attractive architecture.
