Fiber Optics

Fiber optics use thin strands of optically pure glass or plastic fibers to transmit light signals across long distances. Fiber optic cables are made of transparent material, such as silica, surrounded by a protective cladding layer that guides the light along the fiber. This technology is widely used for both short and long-range communication links. In high-speed data applications, fiber optic technology is preferred over copper-based wires. Because fiber optics require minimal power, they are also suitable for areas with limited access to electricity.

Compared to traditional cables, fiber optics provide greater bandwidth capacity, experience minimal signal attenuation (interference), and have a high resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Fiber optics have become indispensable in telecommunications networks and they are the basis for Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs), and other fiber-based networks that facilitate communication between computers housed in different locations.
