How Fiber Optics Have Changed Business

Posted by Maura Mahoney on Tue, May 09, 2017 @ 09:14 AM

The ability to transmit data using pulses of light has opened the door for many world-changing innovations in medicine, manufacturing, and communications. One of the earliest applications of fiber optics was the development of laparoscopes that enable minimally invasive surgical procedures. Further advancements in the technology ushered in the era of high-speed communications.    

The main advantage of fiber optics is speed. Ultra-fast fiber connections have made fiber optics an attractive option for businesses. The glass fibers allow information to travel at nearly the speed of light over long distances without risk of interference.  

The speed, resilience, and reliability of fiber optics have changed how businesses operate by allowing them to work with staff remotely and promote business collaboration.
