Abstract:

This document is a result of a 12 month verification study to determine the system performance of a 12 channel frequency division multiplex FDM fiber optic communication system proposed as a replacement for the CX-4566, 26 pair metallic cable in the ANTTC-38 automatic telephone central office system. In arriving at this specific approach, substantial performance and hardware trade-off analyses were performed for alternative multiplexing and modulation schemes, involving Time Division Multiplexing TDM, Frequency Division Multiplexing FDM, Space Division Multiplexing SDM, and a hybrid combination of FDM and SDM.
