Major factors affecting optical frequency division multiplexing (FDM) distribution system design are described. In particular, multiplexing/distribution configuration and channel-selection methods are compared from the viewpoint of the number of channels, the number of subscribers, and the transmission distance. The applicability of optical fiber amplifiers to the optical FDM information-distribution network is also discussed. The experimental results of a 5 GHz spaced 16-channel FDM distribution/transmission at 622 Mb/s, using a waveguide frequency-selection switch (tunable filter) and a multicarrier frequency-stabilization technique, are also discussed
