Large-core polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) plastic optical fiber has been recognized as a strong candidate for future in-home networks. Both economic and technical studies have shown that it can provide a cost-effective solution to address the booming capacity demand. Evolving from laboratory to trial systems with emerging and maturing POF components, Gigabit POF solutions are getting ready to be commercialized. This article overviews the state of the art of POF activities in both research and industrial aspects, and reports the latest achievements.
