Author Affiliations +
An experimental shared fibre access system for subscriber loop application is described. The system known as MACNET, involves the use of a passive optical coupler located in the street near the cluster of customers served by the network. The experimental system was designed primarily for the delivery of narrowband telecommunication services but the overlay of distributive video has also been demonstrated. The successful development and the experience gained from the experimental system has led to detailed studies for a trial system based on the provision of a fixed access capacity. A particular implementation of this trial system is discussed, as well as an overlay for bi-directional video transmission.
