Abstract

Various metal cables are used in a house: such as Unshielded Twist Pair (UTP) cable for Gigabits Ethernet (GE), High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) for high definition (HD) video contents, and coaxial cable for TV broadcast. To reduce its complexity for consumers, we successfully developed wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transmission system over Graded-Index Plastic Optical Fiber (GI-POF) pair cable to replace these complex metal cables. This system consists of newly developed E/O-O/E converters for each media signal and multi-wavelength Multiplexer (MUX) and De-Multiplexer (DEMUX). Almost all GI-POF wiring for a local area network in home, campus, hospital, and factory can be achieved. Such WDM-GI-POF wiring in the premises can make simple, smart and safe multimedia network services without increasing the number of cables.
