A 10GBASE-SR(IEEE802.3ae) network  using 16km total length graded-index plastic optical fibers (GI-POF) [2∼6] was installed in a new building of Keio University completed in January, 2014. The optical network enables to communicate ultra-high-definition (UHD) video traffic for the university's increasing demand of education and research activities using high quality moving pictures. Because no standard for GI-POF cabling system has ever existed, quality guarantee was one of the biggest concerns for the GI-POF maker and users. To reduce the risk, we established a network configuration, and also set criteria of the BERT (Bit Error Rate Tester) characteristics and the frequency response based on previous studies. The GI-POF cables were inspected in accordance with the new criteria in advance to the building installation, and the network performance was evaluated after the installation. As a conclusion, the new evaluation method of 10Gbps GI-POF cabling system for the building installation was verified.
