Unformatted text preview: - Signaling at frequencies up to 500 mhz up to about a kilometer distance. Optical Fiber - multimode, 50 microns, or single mode, 8-10 microns. Current practical limit is 10 Gb/second, if need electrical/optical/electrical conversion. > 50,000 Gb/second could be achieved, but too fast for electronic processing. Light signals described in terms of wavelengths, ë. ë = c/f, where c is the speed of light, 3*108 meters/second. Wavelength bands - centered at 0.85, 1.3, and 1.55 microns. 1.3 and 1.55 micron bands: attenuation - 0.2 dB per...
