Fiber optic cables are constructed of several thousands of optical fibers that are the diameter of a human hair in a protective and insulated jacket. Since their inception, fiber optic cables have revolutionized the world of telecommunications and have become the cable of choice for long distance lines. They are used in a variety of applications. Some of their most common applications include:
Theinternet: Fiber optic cables are less bulky, lighter and more flexible. They are widely used for the internet because they can transmit large amounts of data at very high speeds.
Cable television: They are ideal for transmitting signals for high definition televisions because they have greater bandwidth and speed.
Telephone networks: They are widely used in telephone networks. These cables make communication faster and ensure clear conversations without lag on either side.
Computer networks: They have made networking between computers in a single building or across nearby structures easier and faster. The use of fiber optic cables has decreased the time it takes to transfer files and information across networks.
Medicine and research: They are widely used in the fields of medicine and research, especially when performing diagnostic testing such as an endoscopy. They are also used in microscopy and biomedical research.
Decorations and lightings: They are used in lighting and decorations. These cables provide easy, economical and attractive solutions for many lighting projects.
Mechanical inspections: Due to their small size and flexibility, fiber optic cables are widely used in the inspection of hard-to-reach places. They are commonly used in on-site inspections for engineers and in the inspection of pipes for plumbers.
Military and aerospace applications: These cables are widely used in the military and aerospace industries because they ensure data transmission that is free of interference from other signals.
Automobile industries: They can conserve space, provide superior lighting and are widely used in the lighting and safety features in automobiles. The use of fiber optic cables is invaluable for traction control and airbag applications in automobiles.
