The Future of Fiber Optics

Fiber optic cabling has continued to see a steady increase in popularity over the last few years and shows no signs of slowing down.

It is an extremely popular option due to its telecommunication and data capabilities and is a reliable choice for high-speed internet for families and businesses alike.  

In this blog, we will discuss why this technology has continued to be such an in-demand option and what the future may hold for fiber optics.

Greater Performance

Fiber optic cabling is made of a flexible, durable fiber that is composed of glass or plastic to transmit data. This fiber comes in threads that are as thin as human hair and transmits the data by modulating it into light waves.

Since the fiber is composed of glass, there is room for information to essentially travel at the speed of light. It is only the electronics provided that limit the speed at which information travels.

While the gigabit speed in which data currently travels through fiber optics is incredibly fast, there is actually room for data to travel faster as devices continue to improve. To meet telecommunication needs, fiber will have the ability to ramp up and meet the new demands.

Mass Accessibility

Another anticipated biproduct of fiber optic cabling’s effectiveness is that it will have greater accessibility to the masses.

While fiber optics are already easily accessible for the majority of the world, there are still some areas where high speed internet and telecommuting services are lagging.

Since fiber optics are much better at keeping their signal, it is likely that they will be able to have a strong connection in even the most remote of places in the future. With a stronger, clearer signal, fiber optics will keep phone call connections and internet moving the way that it should be from nearly anywhere that cabling can be run.

Use in a Wide Range of Industries

While fiber optics has seen a boon in recent years in industries that focus on internet services, television, streaming media and social media, there are several other industries in which fiber optics should work its way into.  

As mentioned above, fiber optics can withstand a wide range of temperatures without losing effectiveness and can even be submerged in water. This makes it useful in an almost endless number of industries in the future.

Whether an industry requires reliable, high-speed internet or other telecommunications services it will be well suited to choose fiber optics.
