Fiber Optic Communications

A Fiber Optic Communication System uses light wave technology to transmit large bandwidth data over a optical fiber by changing electronic signals into light. Optical fiber is used by many telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication, and cable television signals. Researchers at Bell Labs have reached internet speeds of over 100 petabit×kilometer per second using fiber-optic communication.
