Abstract
The University of Massachusetts is planning to use fiber optic cable as the primary medium for a campus high speed data network. In the University environment it is critical to identify primary users and work cooperatively with them in the planning and implementation of the new network. With the installation of a new telecommunications system and associated new cableplant theUniversity plannedfor fiberoptic useby installing two one-inch innerducts specifically for fiberoptic cable in every conduitrun to ailmajor buildings on campus. The University commissioned a topological design forpulling fiber optic cable in a four phased plan that included all major academic administrative and residential buildings. Beginning with the first phase twelve to seventy-two strand 62. 5/125 micron fiber optic cable willbepulledto twenty-two buildings. A six node FDDI based network with Ethernet extensions will be implemented over this cable.
