When we talk about the merits of fiber optics versus those of copper wire cable, the discussion often takes a technical turn and words like wavelengths, attenuation rates, and multiplexing will appear in the conversation.
In fiber-optic communications, what factors make a difference? Do wavelengths matter? And if they do matter, why?
This article will give an overview of fiber-optic cable and how it works. Plus, it will explain how wavelengths factor into signal strength and quality in fiber-optic cable.Read More
