Abstract
Because of the wide deployment of fiber with cables often carrying 100,000 or more voice circuits, even a one minute interruption in telecommunication service can totally disrupt the affected communities. Therefore, service reliability of the telecommunication network is essential in an information-intensive society. One of the major reliability issues is the serviceability of telecommunication systems following a major earthquake. In this paper, we analyzed the mechanical failures of optical fibers from a cable subjected to a major earthquake.
