What is the standard terminology for strands of dark fiber spliced together
to form a continuous path between points A and Z?
I have seen:
- *fiber circuit* [but also seen used to denote a connection at the
network layer over a physical fiber connection. This definition of circuit
would include the dark fiber path, the transmitters and receivers and logic
making up the data and network layers.]
- *fiber loop *[ Does a loop define an electrical circuit with two
physically separate positive and negative strands? In that case, is this a
Bellhead remnant? ]
I am particularly interested in last mile systems, but I don't see any
reason that the term wouldn't be the same in the middle mile.
