Abstract
Polymer optical fiber (POF) is a promising transmission medium to provide b road-band telecommunication services within the customer's premises. POF of fers several attractive features for data transmission such as broad bandwi dth and low cost for in-house, access, and local-area-network (LAN) applica tions. This paper presents a review on optical transmission systems using P OF and their enabling technologies. A summary is given of experimental data links with record capacity over record transmission distances. To conclude , we discuss trends for further development and research.
