The purpose of this paper is to compare the cost and performance trade-offs of polymer optical fiber networks with glass fiber networks and networks on other media. The discussion also includes distance versus attenuation and bandwidth limits for higher data rate transmission over polymer fibers. Finally we describe the performance of a 10 Mb/s Ethernet system built and tested using a modular approach incorporating a prototype snap-lock connection system designed for low cost high volume applications. Low cost is achieved through the use of larger diameter polymer optical fiber which facilitates the use of molded plastic components and simple crimp-on fiber terminations integrated receivers and visible red LEDs.
