Polymer optical fiber (POF) is a promising transmission medium to provide broad-band telecommunication services within the customer's premises. POF offers several attractive features for data transmission such as broad bandwidth and low cost for in-house, access, and local-area-network (LAN) applications. This paper presents a review on optcal transmission systems using POF and their enabling technologies. A summary is given of experimental data links with record capacity over record transmission distances. To conclude, we discuss trends for further development and research.
