Abstract
With the recent emergence of fiber optic technology, optical fibers have been examined as an alternative to coaxial cable in a number of local area network designs. To support this transmission medium, MITRE has developed an active star node that permits unique network topologies to be employed. With the introduction of low cost components, the active star node has been redesigned to employ this new technology. This document describes the low cost fiber optic network node design and examines current applications and limitations of this implementation.
