The Use Of Dispersion-shifted Fiber For Cable TV Applications (1992)

By Douglas E. Wolfe, Corning Incorporated & Don Frymyer, Scientific-Atlanta, Inc.

As cable television operators deploy optical fiber in increasing volume, single-mode dispersion-shifted fiber has emerged as a viable transmission option in the 1550 nanometer (nm) window. This paper discusses the performance attributes of dispersion-shifted fiber, as well as the relative tradeoffs between it and standard single-mode fiber. The paper also outlines some potential cable television applications for dispersion-shifted fiber.
