The use of the fiber optic transmission medium in local area networks is explored. A taxonomy of LANs is presented, and it is shown that fiber may be considered as a universal medium for the different varieties of possible systems. The trends for future fiber systems are examined, and it is demonstrated that fiber may be used to extend the capabilities of traditional networks and also make possible new and different architectures designed to exploit the bandwidth of fiber.
