Paper Abstract

In November '87, the Accredited Standards Committee X3, "Information Processing Systems," approved a project for FDDI support of singlemode fiber (SMF) as an alternative to the current multimode fiber (MMF). This paper describes: why it will be important for FDDI to support token-ring networks made of any combination of MMF and SMF; the status, the organization and the content of the draft standard document (SM-PMD); possible future plans for the evolution of the PMD standards.
