Abstract : Hong Kong Telephone has employed fibre optic technology in its transmission network since 1981. Fibre optic transmission systems are used to facilitate the digitalization of the Hong Kong Telephone network and also in the provision of new non voice services, such as private video and multi megabit leased datalines. The potentials of fibre optic systems are large, and in this paper, some examples will be given to illustrate how the attributes of fibre optic systems are exploited in Hong Kong Telephone.
