  • Just What Is Optical Carrier (OC) Bandwidth?
    Ever wonder just what the heck was an "OC48"? Not surprisingly many network engineers and IT managers aren't up to speed (no pun intended) on just what OC really means...and what all is available to enahnce their company's applications within this bandwidth category. So....here's a quick run down to set you straight. The OC (optical carrier...fiber optic based broadband network )hierarchy goes as follows, starting with a T3/DS3 electrical carrier and then on to an OC-1: DS3 (Electrical) = 44. Read More...
  • Fiber Optics Price
    Optics fiber cables do not stop amazing us for the many uses that are found for them everyday. They are the product of the wonderful blend of art and science. Made form an array of thin glass and plastic, a fiber optic cable has one side that is a light source and another one that is a camera lens. When light gets into the light end of the cable it travels through the tube until the cladding or covering of the fiberís core, where it is kept inside. No matter if the fiber cables are bent or twis Read More...
  • The World of Fiber Optics
    Principle of fiber optics is based on transmission of data by means of light. Concept of fiber optics was first conceived by Claude Chappe in 1790's. His idea for fiber optics was based on an optical telegraph concept invented by Graham Bell also tried the means to send information by the atmosphere but did not succeed. Finally, fiber optics emerged with the onset of new era based on the principle of total internal reflection which is a distinct quality of light rays. Fiber optics emerged and g Read More...
