Abstract
A concept for a new optical Ethernet interface card for FTTD (fiber-to-the-desktop) is proposed and application areas of the proposed card are discussed. As a first step towards realizing the concept, a one-fiber 100-megabit optical Ethernet PC card was fabricated by applying a hybrid integrated optical transceiver module and an MU connector. As a second step, a gigabit optical Ethernet PC card was fabricated for the first time and its performance was evaluated. These cards could become the standard in the coming optical FTTD/FTTN (fiber-to-the-notebook PCs) age because they are suitablie for notebook PCs and can operate in one-fiber WDM systems.
