Abstract:

Optical fiber bas been the preferred cabling technology for certain building and campus network LAN backbones. Until recently however the use of fiber as a cabling medium to the desktop has been confined to special environments that require the unique properties of optical fiber such as noise immunity security distance high bandwidth demands CADCAM video conferencing and immunity to electrical interference. However choosing to use optical fiber in a network over other cabling options may present significant advantages in its inherent ability to handle data at higher speeds Decrease costs of optical fiber components compared to the increase electronic costs of carrying Gigabit Ethernet over Cat 5 or Cat SE UTP copper cabling has also accelerated the migration to optical fiber LAN. The thesis conducts a feasibility study of implementing a Fiber Optic Local Area Network in Software Metrics Laboratory in Ingersoll 158.
