We review on-going progress in the development of fiber-based telecom-band entanglement sources. Two different schemes (a Sagnac-loop scheme and a counter-propagating scheme) for generating polarization entanglement are reviewed and the pros and cons of each are summarized. A new scheme, called the double-loop scheme is proposed, which is theoretically shown to be capable of combining the benefits and avoiding the pitfalls of each previous scheme.
