The principal factor in realising a high-performance bandwidth-efficient fibre communication system at an acceptable cost is the choice of modulation format on the optical carrier. In this context, pulse time modulation (PTM) techniques represent an attractive alternative to purely digital or analogue methods. The PTM family is reviewed, a classification system is proposed and their potential for use in high-speed fibre systems intended for the transmission of analogue data is examined.
