      In this paper, we investigate high-capacity fiber-optic networks for real-time telemetry applications. The network topologies and related network components are analyzed for telemetry fiber-optic Local Area Network (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) as well as MAN internetworking with LANs. Two types of multiplexing techniques, namely, Wavelength Division Multiplexing and Time Division Multiplexing, are proposed to support real-time high-capacity telemetry applications, and the perspective of such networks is also considered. Finally, the optical modulation technique and the choice of optical devices are discussed, which are based on improving the reliability of fiber-optic LANs and MANs.
