In the last 10 years, the trunk telecommunications networks in the USA and Europe have been restructured using fibre optic technology. Fibre optics offer the advantages of almost infinite bandwidth, low loss and interference free transmission. The trunk network operators have used these capabilities to increase their system capacity, with 565 Mbps now a standard transmission rate. The reduction or elimination of repeaters and the increased capacity has allowed the systems to be installed cost effectively. With the fibre optic trunk networks largely complete, the benefits of applying this technology to the customer access connection are being considered.
