From the Publisher

Essential reading for anyone involved in fiber optic cable applications, from installation engineers to IT professionals.

Fiber Optic Cabling is a practical guide to all aspects of designing, specifying and installing systems for LANs and other data communications applications. The second edition has been completely revised and updated by Barry Elliott, taking into account the major developments in LAN and transmission technology over the past 10 years. The latest legislation is also dealt with, including standards relating to flammability. Cutting edge topics such as photonic switching, wavelength division multiplexing and plastic fiber, and their implications for the future are also explored. An international perspective of the subject is taken, with the author looking at all the practical implementations for fiber optic cabling, using American, European and International ISO standards.

Barry Elliott has twenty years experience in the telecommunications business and became one of the first BICSI Registered Cabling Distribution Designers in Europe in 1999. He currently specializes in optical fiber and structured cabling with Brand-Rex Ltd.

In 1991 Mike Gilmore established The Cabling Partnership, a leading cabling design consulting and training organization. Mike is chairman of the UK BSI Premises Cabling Experts Panels and Convenor of the equivalent CENELEC Working Group. Mike also acts as both the Technical and Standards Director of the UK Fibreoptic Industry Association.

Will Not-Quite-Fiber Make the Grade?

Eric Pfanner and Michael Scaturro East of Ipswich, on a former Royal Air Force base where World War II aces once took off to fight the Luftwaffe, British telecommunications provider BT is testing what it calls the near future of broadband. By the end of the year, thousands of homes will be hooked up to BT’s G.fast networking hardware, which the company says will be enough for customers to stream high-definition TV to multiple sets, download movies onto a laptop, and chat on Skype all at the same time, without any dropouts or buffering. And, not incidentally, it’s a lot cheaper to install than

New Cores for Fiber Optics Could Speed up Internet

A new way of creating semiconductor fiber optics may lead to much faster transfer of data, new research suggests. Researchers are working with semiconductor optical fibers, which hold significant advantages over silica-based fiber optics, the current technology used for transmitting nearly all digital data. Silica—glass—fibers can only transmit electronic data converted to light data. This requires external electronic devices that are expensive and consume enormous amounts of electricity. Semiconductor fibers, however, can transmit both light and electronic data and might also be able to compl

The Factories of the Future Could Float in Space

Bigelow Aerospace Private companies providing cheap access to space could open up a whole new frontier in manufacturing. Bigelow Aerospace has suggested its expandable habitats (shown here) could be used as factories in orbit around Earth. This past summer, a plane went into a stomach-churning ascent and plunge 30,000 feet over the Gulf of Mexico. The goal was not thrill-seeking, but something more genuinely daring: for about 25 seconds at a time, the parabolic flight lifted the occupants into a state of simulated weightlessness, allowing a high-tech printer to spit out cardiac stem cells into
