Optical technology is currently the fastest way possible large-capacity data transmission. In development, which lasted more than 40 years, this technology proved to be an effective way of communication, first in the army, then in the connection between business and lately also for the connections to households.
Operators are connected on the backbone network and each of them has built its own network, which they market, sell or lease. In the past only companies were coupled to the backbone network through these operators, but now households can share it too.
In addition to links with operators, links among enterprises are important. Beside it's high-capacity transmission they allow also the highest security, reliability and rapid adaptability.
For the optical link, no big adjustment for the computer's hardware is needed, because our operators offer a variety of subscription packages that include an optical modem, through which you connect to the web. If we want to set up a home network, we need only a standard cable or Wi-Fi router.
The most commonly used optical cables are of 12, 24, 48, 72, 96, 144, 196, 244, 864 fibers. These are then merged together in the Coupler (after alignment) and then terminated in patch panels and modems (at the end of the alignment, or where new connections will be necessary). On the panels optical fibers are spliced to special optical fiber connectors (PC, APC, LC, FC, ...), while in the modem they end to a regular network connector (it is then possible to connect it to the cable network router or computer).
Technology made large populations possible; large populations now make technology indispensable.
