Topic Synopsis:

In this presentation, we will examine the critical importance of fiber optic cable technology to modern business enterprises. Rather it be for transporting high speed data between floors in a building or across the world’s oceans, fiber optic technology has revolutionized the way the world communicates. We will discuss the role that fiber optic has historically played in telecommunications, and look at how fiber technology has provided the ultra-high capacity data links needed for such technologies as international telephony, video transmission, and cellular telephones.
