Study seeks to understand limited success of fiber in premises cabling
The Fiber Optic Association (FOA; Boston, MA) will study fiber competitiveness in premises cabling in an attempt to understand why fiber has been accepted for many applications in the market but not in others. In addition, the association will examine the validity of these reasons and consider ways to improve products, practices, standards, and perceptions within the marketplace. The results will be made public for comment in early 1998. Anyone interested in participating should contact the FOA at (617) 469-2362. The survey questionnaire will be available on the FOA Web site at http://world.std.com/~foa.
