Every person who has used fiber-optic networks for connectivity can agree that it provides fast and excellent transmission of data. Fiber optic technology is a gold standard that relies on light rather than electricity to connect people, businesses and even nations. Most business owners are investing in fiber optic sorely because of its speed and not the other advantages most probably because they do not understand them. Being a new technology, some people may see it as a risky investment. However, for people who rely on internet connectivity for their businesses, they should know that fiber optic could be holding a brighter future of their communication, collaboration, and productivity.
Origin of Fiber Optic Concept
The idea of fiber optic was introduced to the world by three scientists Alexander Graham Bell, John Tyndall and William Wheeler whose main agenda was to find a better way of transmitting data at the speed of light. This was in the 1800s. Later the fiber cables were invented and believed to transmit data more than 65,000 times of what copper wire could transmit. Fiber optic networks use these cables that are made of long and flexible glass fibers. The cables help to transmit signals by connecting the users to the internet and allows them to carry on with online activities. The good thing about these cables is that they carry a very small width and therefore are very light, which helps to avoid numerous cabling problems. Due to the high speed associated with it, fiber …Read More
