Abstract
This review paper describes the status of optical fiber technology in Canada. Work on optical fiber communications started in 1972 at Bell-Northern Research and the Communications Research Centre. Since then several other industrial organizations, universities, and government organizations have contributed to the development of the technology. Work on optimized, compatible components and initial system studies have led to several experimental trial systems. These systems will be described and current results will be summarized.
