14 PUSHING FIBER TO THE LIMITS

 

 

Now that we have completed the discussion of today's fiber optic system elements, the focus will shift to the fiber optic Systems of tomorrow. The future of fiber optic advances lies in increased capacity for every aspect of the fiber optic system. However, the need to increase fiber capacity leads to the primary field of research for fiber optics.

TRENDS

Many of the developments discussed in this chapter originally evolved from other technologies such as wireless technology. The use of ever more exotic coding schemes and techniques, such as forward error correction (FEC), indicate that current fiber technology has yielded all of the “easy” bandwidth. These advanced techniques potentially increase the capacity ...
