High Speed Network Applications and Implications for Fiberoptic and Copper Connections
D R. Collins, John K. Antonishek, Sean K. Sell, Alan Mink
We present an analysis of the current tradeoffs between using copper wire versus fiberoptic cable for rewiring buildings at NIST for data communications to the desk-top. We consider tradeoffs from two different viewpoints: (a) the cost of installing and maintaining the wiring, and (b) the computer imposed limitations on the use of the wiring. These findings substantiate our decision to use copper wiring.
