Installation And Field Operation Of An 8 KM Fiber-Optic CATV Supertrunk System (1979)

By Donald G. Monteith, Cablesystems Engineering & Joseph W. Proctor, Canstar Communications

The BCN Fibre Optic experiment in London, Ontario is the first major fibre optic CATV supertrunk installation in North America.

The link transmits 12 NSTC color television channels and 12 FM stereo channels over an eight fibre cable 7.8 km in length. Audio, video and FM signals are digitized and multiplexed into a single 322 Mb/s bit stream modulating an injection laser diode transmitter.

This presentation describes the installation and field operation of the link, outlining construction problems and their solutions and describes the field maintenance procedures employed. Information is also presented on the reliability and performance quality of the system obtained to date.

Videotape highlights illustrating cable installation practices, splicing, connectorization and electro-optics installation and maintenance will be shown.
