Attenuation, a reduction in the of propagation problems over wide range of the affecting transmitted power, has long been a problem for the fiber parameters. Dispersion characteristics in high-speed optical transmission systems are deeply analyzed over a span of optics community. However, researchers have optical wavelengths from 1.2 μm up to 1.65 μm. Two different established three main sources of this loss: absorption, fiber structures for dispersion management are investigated. scattering, and dispersion [2, 3]. Fiber to the Home Two types of fabrication material link of single mode fiber (FTTH) technology is one of the main research made of Germania doped Silica and plastic fibers are objectives of the lasts years in optical fiber suggested. Two successive segments of single mode fiber communication. The increasing development of data made of Germania doped Silica are suggested to be employed communications and the emerging of applications periodically in the long-haul systems. The two successive demand a redesign of the access networks in order to segments are: i) of different chemical structures (x), or ii) of accomplish new bandwidth and latency requirements. different relative refractive index differences (Δn). As well as Wireless communications are a good alternative for the total spectral losses of both fabrication materials and total insertion losses of connectors and splices of these fabrication quick deployments and low cost implementations but materials are presented under the thermal effect of to be this technology cannot compete against optical processed to handle both transmission lengths and bit rates per communications in terms of available bandwidth, channel for cables of multi links over wide range of the latency and robustness. Since 1980, several techniques affecting parameters. Within soliton and maximum time have been proposed and applied to reduce such division multiplexing (MTDM) transmission techniques, both phenomenon which severely reduces the transmitted bit- the transmission bit rate and capacity-distance product per rate [4, 5]. The rapid increase of transmission capacity channels for both of silica doped and plastic fabrication need is requiring higher speed optical communication materials are estimated. The bit rates are studied within system. However, the upgrade of most installed system thermal sensitivity effects, loss and dispersion sensitivity effects of the refractive index of the fabrication core materials at third window to multi-Giga-bit rate is limited by the are taken into account to present the effects on the high linear chromatic dispersion of the optical standard performance of optical fiber cable links. Dispersion fiber deployed worldwide [6, 7]. To upgrade existing characteristics and dispersion management are deeply studied networks based on standard single-mode 1310 nm where two types of optical fiber cable core materials are used. optimized optical fibers, several all-optical dispersion A chromatic dispersion management technique in optical compensation techniques have been proposed [6].Recent single mode fiber is introduced which is suitable for progress in optical fiber amplifier technology makes (ALAOCN) to facilitate the design of the highest and the best fiber dispersion the ultimate limiting factor for high- transmission performance of bit rates in optical networks. speed long-distance optical fiber transmission.

Conclusions fibers will be increased. Therefore we can say that the The characteristics of both of silica doped and lowest total dispersion and total losses of silica-doped plastic fibers are investigated under the different fibers make these fibers as the best candidate media for affecting parameters. soliton and MTDM high long haul optical transmission in advanced optical transmission techniques are employed for reducing the communication networks. propagation problems as limiting factors such as total losses and dispersion across silica-doped and plastic References materials in (ALAOCN) within suitable affecting [1] M.
