Abstract
An optical fiber cable distribution architecture and a ring interface are described. The unique synergism of the ring configuration coupled with a widespread optical fiber cable facility are explored. The ring interface adapts a token passing network of work-stations from coaxial cable to 50 micron core, telecommunications type, fiber optic cable. The optical fiber cable links a series of communications centers to as many as 288 optical fibers. The loop distribution of optical fibers forms the backbone for a 6.7 km ring operating at 6-12 Mbps.
