A high-reliability 565 Mbit/s trunk transmission system capable of operating over a 25.5 dB fiber section loss at 1.3 μm is described. Details of the line terminal and repeater design are presented, together with an outline of the integrated circuit design and process. Aspects of the line code and interface choice are also discussed in relation to the optical receiver, transmitter, and supervisory circuits. Finally, systems design aspects are considered and field experience resulting from a system installation spanning 77 km between Birmingham and Derby is reported.
