Paper Abstract

Progress in optical fiber technology has been rapid in recent years and usage is now expected to grow rapidly. The design of a fiber optic system requires that all component specifications be consistent with those of the overall system. This paper describes many of these specifications and some of the trade-offs inherent in the technology today. The components of most importance are the optical cable, optical connectors, and electro-optic modems. Such specifications as cable attenuation/dispersion, connector loss, modem outputs and input sensitivities, and various environmental factors are discussed.
