This paper reviews optical fiber design evolution for transmission systems over the past three decades, including both multimode and single-modes fibers. Key fiber attributes related to fiber transmission systems and how fiber designs have evolved to improve these attributes to enable higher and higher transmission data rate are discussed. Major fiber design change milestones in the past are covered. Also discussed are recent new developments in optical fiber technology.
