In this paper we review the issues with which the fiber optic LAN planner today must contend. These include the network topology, line control procedures, the choice of medium, whether the medium should be passive or active, the selection of sources, detectors, and connectors, whether the LAN should support one or several services, the use of baseband vs. broadband signaling, and the prospects for LAN standards.
