HOW DOES IT WORK?

FIBER OPTICS IN TELECOMMUNICATION

Overview

Fiber optics in communication is a solution for transmitting information from one place to another. This is done by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light passing through the thin glass fiber then forms an electromagnetic carrier wave, that is regulated to carry information.

PURPOSE

There are multiple important purposes of this application, and it is a key solution for information traffic. Transmission medium in the Internet, computer networks and multimedia is possible with the help of fiber optics. Large corporations, banks, and institutions benefit from fiber optics due to the high security it offers. These places need systems that are reliable and secure in order to transfer computer and monetary information to various locations.

What are the benefits and disadvantages?

Benefits: - Long distance signal transmission - Nonconductivity - Security Disadvantages: - Cost per use - Physical constraints - Switching

1880: Alexander Graham Bell and his assitant developed the Photophone, allowing transmission of sound on a beam of light 1970: Corning Glass Works successfully established optical fiber 1988: Transatlantic telephone cable went into operation
