Abstract

Most current data transmission systems are either analog or digital. On most analog systems, the data can be a continuous stream, but the current analog transmission lines lack efficiency. Current digital transmission lines use fiber optics cables to send the encoded analog signal, which has much higher efficiency. The problem with the digital transmission is that the original analog signal has to be broken down into binary data, which in turn produces a longer stream of data. To solve this data lengthening, most transmission technologies use the idea of compression.

OPICAL-OCTAL DATA TRANSMISSION SYSTEM

Most current data transmission systems are either analog or digital. On most analog systems, the data can be a continuous stream, but the current analog transmission lines lack efficiency. Current digital transmission lines use fiber optics cables to send the encoded analog signal, which has much higher efficiency. The problem with the digital transmission is that the original analog signal has to be broken down into binary data, which in turn produces a longer stream of data. To solve this data lengthening, most transmission technologies use the idea of compression.

Using the Optical-Octal system invention, the analog data can be represented by colored light and sent through the fiber optic to a decoder. This system uses the efficient fiber optic networks, but in the same time does not lengthen the data stream like the digital systems. The system can be expanded to include two other additional colors to the original set of eight, and therefore the representation will span the colors of: black, violet, blue, cyan, green, yellow, orange, red, magenta, and white. The system has the flexibility of using eight or ten colors to represent the data.

The system can even be used to send the analog signal without breaking it up. This is accomplished by using the original signal to drive the color decoder in sending a continuous varied color light signal....
