Two approaches to fiber-optic subscriber loop system development in Japan are described. In the first. Approach I, NTT aims at introducing inexpensive fiber-optic subscriber loop systems using conventional LED's, multimode fiber, and analog transmission techniques in the near future. In the second, Approach II, fiber-optic subscriber loop systems will be made highly functional by evolving from analog to digital transmission. This paper presents system fabrication examples for each approach and the results obtained in the tests.
