UNION PACIFIC FIRST TO USE OPTICAL FIBERS

An optical fiber cable, in replacement of a conventional coaxial cable, is being used for transmission of closed circuit television car identification data at Union Pacific's Denver, Co., yard. For a year it will be tested for performance under conditions of vibration, ice and wind loading, and changing temperatures. Advantages are absence of crosstalk, high bandwidth, and resistance to electromagnetic interference.
