Abstract
Within the RACE project 1051 `multigigabit transmission in the IBCN subscriber loop' the major technologies for 5 and 10 Gbit/s fiber-optic transmission systems have been developed. Components and building blocks for all system functions like multiplexer, laser driver, receiver preamplifier, main amplifier, regenerator and demultiplexer/channel selector have been realized in the form of silicon bipolar chips for both bitrates. Integrated transmitter and receiver modules have been built around advanced optoelectronic components. With a cascade of 4 optical amplifiers it was possible to bridge a budget of 100 dB at 10 Gbit/s without applying optical filters. This means that more than 8 million customers can be supplied by only one optical transmitter.
