    ABSTRACT: Notes on Fiber-In-The-Loop (FITL), a new release in the popular Telcordia Notes series, takes you from the fundamentals of this complex, high-speed data communications technology, through the variation in network architectures, to its future trends in a high-level review. Based on the latest information available in the telecommunications and networking industry and standards organizations, this Special Report (SR) introduces FITL technologies.

    This document, from the company with a unique legacy of expertise in this field (Telcordia published industry requirements and standards, GR-909-CORE, for FITL systems in 2000), provides the latest information on recent and evolving activities in FITL broadband systems. The SR brings the reader quickly up to speed in areas of commercial FITL deployment and networking, emphasizing the current state of the more predominant FITL systems without neglecting the potential of up-and-coming alternatives. Information from standard initiatives also provides readers with the latest news on the progress of FITL systems.

    With Notes on FITL you will learn about:

    • Internet and data highway congestion and how FITL offers the most promising solutions for its reduction
    • The evolution of fiber-optic systems in the telecommunications network
    • The fundamentals of the FITL system and optical transmission
    • Different architectural options of FITL - their pros and cons as broadband access networks
    • Markets served and services offered by each architectural alternative
    • Progress in standardization and maturity of each FITL technology
    • The current state of FITL deployment, issues, and what the future holds
    • Network management and security

    With the Notes on...series, Telcordia Technologies has devised a starting point for your search through the rapidly developing world of telecommunications. Written by the authors of the successful Telcordia Notes on the Networks document SR-2275, this series similarly contains technical material of interest to engineering and planning groups, as well as descriptions of the characteristics and background of these subjects in layman's terms. The difference is that Telcordia Notes on...zeroes in on one technology in each document and breaks it down into manageable terms. From the history, background, and basic elements through a discussion of what the future may bring, our subject matter experts cover the important aspects in as few words as possible. Each document in the series deals with complex, highly technical subjects, and presents the information in a way that makes it accessible and understandable to a variety of readers.
