Will lightwave communications be useful

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Within the last ten years or so, glass fibers have been developed that are capable of transmitting optical signals over distances that are long enough to have potential use for many kinds of communications. They may replace wires, coaxial cable, and microwave links in many applications, and some forecasters expect them to do so within the next ten years or so. A technology assessment of lightwave communication systems is presented.
