    The introduction of fiber subscriber systems is assessed from the viewpoints of incentives for the network operator, merits for the users, and the expansion of the social infrastructure. The design of point-to-multipoint transmission system, which will be applied to fiber-to-the-home and fiber-to-the-floor systems, are presented. It is shown that the penetration of these systems depends on new ser... View full abstract»

    The advantages and disadvantages of centralized, local, and stand-alone solar (SAS) power systems for powering fiber-in-the-loop systems are discussed. The component costs of the three architectures and their life-cycle costs are estimated. It is shown that, while no single power architecture can be used ubiquitously, centralized power appears to have a cost advantage over local and SAS power for ... View full abstract»
