Fiber optic technology was first developed over 50 years ago, but we’ve only just recently begun to realize its full potential. From military radar systems to advanced medical techniques and, of course, Internet communications, the potential applications of fiber optics are numerous and varied.
Because fiber optic networking is still a relatively new innovation, however, many people don’t fully understand how this technology works. That’s why we created an infographic with a host of helpful information about fiber optics for our readers. You’ll learn about the history of fiber optic cables, their construction, their advantages over conventional wiring and more. Check it out!
