The use of single-mode optical fiber cables in the local network is discussed. For various network structures, cable constructions with loose buffered fibers, ribbon, and V-groove elements are discussed. For star networks, cables with up to 2000 fibers are described. Cables for bus/star networks are also discussed. Splicing techniques and enclosures are considered. It is concluded that only mass splicing technologies with ribbons will lead to the required results
