Transcontinental Fiber Optics

Fiber optics technology is almost synonymous with telecommunications. As the innovations of fiber optics technology gets newer, the telecommunication technology likewise gets better. It can be deduced that fiber optics technology has largely impacted the performance of today’s telecommunication business.

The telecommunication system is greatly dependent with fiber optics technology. In order to live up to the competition and staying on top, and where survival is the fittest, is the norm a great amount of profitable investment in fiber optics is necessary. Any company that operates in this field has to find ways in order to attract more consumers and following.

Three big names in the telecommunications industry like Sprint, AT&T, and MCI have something in common, not because they are all leaders in the market but mainly because they have transcontinental fiber optics in place to accommodate greater proportions of data and information being processed from different points all over the globe. Transcontinental fiber optics means a big investment, but it pays great dividends as far as the rate and quality of data transmitted is concerned. By far, transcontinental fiber optics is gives better performance as compared to the almost obsolete copper cables that used to connect long distance telephone system.

Transcontinental fiber optics are those fiber optics cables placed underwater or even along seabeds that spans across oceans to connect telecommunication system. Transcontinental fiber optics, because of its protection, it can resist water seepage thus, protecting the information sent via fiber optics pathway. Regardless of the extent of the distance that the transcontinental fiber optics traveled it is still capable of giving a high-performance data transmission capability.

Just when we thought that only the telecommunications industry is the one that is solely dependent on fiber optics technology, there is one more field that also uses great advantage of fiber optics—the Defense Department of almost all the powerful countries in the world.

Developed countries from the west and a few from the east are making strides in protecting their country’s interest from the hands of highly organized crime groups. Intelligence and counter intelligence measures are at work just to keep their nations’ security. The issue on submarines spying on or intruding transcontinental fiber optics telecommunication lines raises a deep concern on the issue of privacy invasion.

SONAR (Sound Navigation and Ranging) is the key responsible in making transcontinental fiber optics installation possible, because only sonar is capable of measuring the depths of the sea floor once the fiber optics cable are installed.

Fiber optics technology served as the backbone that keeps the Defense Department of a country and the telecommunications industry running. It is expected that in the near future fiber optics will be used in almost any industry.
