Polymer Optical fibers combine the advantages of an optical communication medium with the availability of low cost components and extremely easy installation. After the introduction of POF in car networks the use in building networks will be the next big market. Interdevice data links and sensor networks are additional potential fields of application. Improved active components and the use of efficient coding schemes will open new possibilities for optical data communication in a distance range between centimeters and several 100 meters.
