Abstract
The concept for using a duplex connector for the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) was formalized in late 1983. The duplex requirements were driven by both the token ring topology and by the need to simplify connectivity between stations. Though most users speak in terms of a duplex connector or Medium Interface Connector (MIC), the FDDI Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) document only defines the physical parameters for a duplex receptacle. The receptacle is the boundary between the station and the cable plant of an FDDI network and hence the only location at which station conformance can be verified. The duplex connector or plug is therefore part of the FDDI cable plant.
