Fiber optic communications systems include components unfamiliar to most communications system designers, but their design is based on principles that differ little from their conventional counterparts. Link analysis is carried out in much the same way as for an electrical cable system. The chief distinction results from the increased bandwidth capability with fiber optic systems, which allows the design engineer to make different trade-offs in determining the optimum transmission format as well as source, detector, and cable types.
