Abstract:

This document has been prepared as a handbook applicable to the design and performance evaluation of optical fiber communication systems. It is oriented toward the communication engineer who is familiar with microwave systems both cable and propagating, but who has had little or no experience in the fiberoptics technology. Introductory material for all of the components currently being applied to this new communications technology has beenn included, together with a discussion of the most important operational parameters and considerations. Contents of the text material have been limited by using a need to know concept in order to provide the user with only the necessary and fundamental information. Design methods are presented in detail, and are coupled with illustrative examples. The methodology presented should be useful as a guideline either to the design and specification of a system, or to evaluate a proposed design to meet specified operational requirements. Author
