Abstract:

Candidate applications for fiber optics in the TRITAC network are identified and sufficient technical data presented in support of the selection of the ANTTC-39 intershelter cabling application for further feasibility development. During the initial phase of this study, the overall TRITAC network was examined and several potential applications identified and categorized. This list of applications was ranked in order of desirability according to criteria developed during the course of the study. Upon review and concurrence by ECOM, the ANTTC-39 intershelter application was selected and a detailed study made leading to preparation of the performance requirements for a subsequent feasibility development. These requirements include electrical and mechanical interface characteristics, multiplexing techniques, optical link design and performance requirements in sufficient detail to allow preparation of a specification for an exploratory developmental model.
