10 SYSTEM DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

SYSTEM DESIGN FACTORS

To achieve high-quality transmission, careful decisions based on operating parameters apply for each component of a fiber optic transmission system. The main questions, given in Table 10.1, involve data rates and bit error rates in digital systems, bandwidth, linearity, and signal-to-noise ratios in analog systems, and in all systems, transmission distances. These questions of how far, how good, and how fast define the basic application constraints. Once these are decided, it is time to evaluate the other factors involved.
