Lecture 5: Introduction to Optical Networks 4/ Optical Communication Systems and Networks What is an optical network? An optical network is a communications network in which transmission links are made up optical fibers, and its architecture is designed to exploit the optical fiber advantages. The optical elements used in such networks are only passive components, such as fibers, splitters/couplers and connectors. The optical path that consists of these components is called the Optical Distribution Network (ODN). The Optical Line Terminal (OLT) resides in the CO, connecting the optical access network to an IP, ATM, or SONET backbone. Documenting the fiber optic cable plant is a necessary part of the design and installation process for the fiber optic network. Documenting the installation properly as part of the planning process can save time and material in the installation and allow better planning for upgrading.
