We present our prototype solution for transmitting 100 Mb/s Ethernet data over large core (1 mm) step-index polymer optical fiber (POF), as one of the final results of the EU-funded project POF-ALL. The system is demonstrated over a record maximum distance of 275 m, largely outperforming CAT-5 systems and currently commercially available POF media converters. These results let us envision POF deployment for home networking and industrial automation and in general for all those environments in which ease of installation, rugged solution, low-cost and electromagnetic compatibility issues are requested.
