Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The construction of an optical subscriber loop and its operation system will be one of the most important infrastructures for the information society of the future. This paper presents a discussion of current and future service trends, the evolution of fiber-optic systems in the loop, and subscriber loop operation systems. Several operation technologies are also discussed which will enable the operation systems described in this paper to be constructed. Of these, the key technologies are an operation system architecture with flexibility, software technologies based on object-oriented design and programming, and automatic operation modules.
