    Fiber optics Thesis: Some of the important features of the fiber optics that we are interested are discussed below. Now a days we are using copper wires as they are the most cost effective and reliable interconnect in parallel machines. However as machines grow more powerful, wire density becomes critical making fiber possible alternatives because of their small wire size. Fiber optics are used mainly to use effectively its high bandwidth. On a single fiber lots of information/data can

    Technology There are four methods of data transmission on Internet: DSL, cable, wireless (wireless), and fiber optics. DSL is an existing copper wire of a phone line to deliver high speed internet access. Cable is to utilize a coaxial cable that connects to a television set. WIFI represents wireless that are used for Internet connection without wire. Fiber optic offers many advantages over conventional copper cable lines. It is able to transmit data much faster over greater distances and because

    the emerging technologies in broadband, Wi-Fi, and fiber optics. According to Dr. John O. Limb, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and director of the Broadband Telecommunications Center at Georgia Tech: "Within 10 years, we believe that a majority of homes in the United States ware going to be equipped with broadband communication pipelines connecting to a host of available services." (Goolrick, 2006). Besides broadband, fiber optics is another tangible that will have an impact on the

    inter-communications system. The main advantage of using this system is that is supports voice over IP (VoIP) services such as IP-Centrex. IP Centrex is a service that provides a single broadband access point to a company. The company can use this access point to broadcast packets of voice data. When no voice data is present, more bandwidth is available to other uses of the company. This results in saved money to the company because dedicated phone lines are not needed. The new communications system

    FIBER OPTICS IN OUR SCHOOLS Fiber optic refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light impulses along a glass or plastic wire or fiber, about the thickness of a human hair. Fiber optic wire carries much more information than conventional copper wire, and is far less subject to electromagnetic interference. A single glass fiber can carry the equivalent of 100 channels of television or 100,000 telephone calls, with even more capacity possible by encasing

    Fiber Optics What are Fiber Optics? Fiber optics are thin transparent fibers of glass or plastic enclosed by a material of a lower index of refraction and that transmit light throughout their length by internal reflections. Real fiber optic cables are made out of very pure glass, glass so pure that if it were miles thick, light would still be able to pass through. The fiber optic strand, although thin in diameter, is stretched to miles in length. Therefore only the purest of glass would be

    together on an optical fiber, with each signal carried at the same time on its own separate light wavelength. Using DWDM, up to 80 (and theoretically more) separate wavelengths or channels of data can be multiplexed into a light stream transmitted on a single optical fiber. Each channel carries a time division multiplexed (TDM) signal. In a system with each channel carrying 2.5 Gbps (billion bits per second), up to 200 billion bits can be delivered a second by the optical fiber. DWDM is also sometimes

    owing to fiber optic technology. In 1979, AT&T filled the telecommunications industry with revolutionary ideas by developing a mode for data transmission using a light, called fiber optic cable. This mode produced a bandwidth of 44.736 Mbps and could multiplex 672 trunk circuits on one fiber alone (Cole, M. 2000). However, this development was merely the start of a huge extension to telecommunications, something that would transform the industry constantly. Although AT&T brought in fiber optic technology
