What is Fiber Optics?

There are many people out there who keep hearing the term fiber optics but do not know what it means. Fiber optics is “the branch of optics that deals with the transmission of light through transparent fibers, as in the form of pulses for the transmission of data or communications, or through fiber bundles for the transmission of images.”(dictionary.com)

Many telecommunication companies including NITCO are or will be replacing the copper wiring used to send and receive voice and data with fiber optics.

The benefit of using fiber optics as opposed to copper is that it transmits information much faster than copper. Fiber optics has the potential to carry more than a terabit of data per second, as with copper can only carry about 2.5 megabits per second. Copper transmits information using electrical signals. Fiber optics transmit information using pulses of light from a laser or LED. Fiber optics are made from tubes of glass. This allows the information to bounce from one side of the glass tube to the other following its path until it reaches its destination.

With the use of copper, it has been known to get electromagnetic interference, but fiber optics does not use any metallic components which mean it is not vulnerable to this problem. Copper can also be “tapped” or monitored without disrupting the signal but with Fiber, you cannot do so without disrupting the signal.

We are excited to move forward into the future with the use of fiber optics. Every day we are moving closer and closer to replacing the current system with the fiber optics. Watch for notifications on our website, facebook, twitter, and other forms of advertising as we move ahead.
