The Optics of Fiber Optics

As explained on

A fiber-optic cable is made up of incredibly thin strands of glass or plastic known as optical fibers; one cable can have as few as two strands or as many as several hundred. Each strand is less than a tenth as thick as a human hair and can carry something like 25,000 telephone calls. So an entire fiber-optic cable can easily carry several million calls. The current record for a “single-mode” fiber (that’s explained below) is 178 terabits (trillion bits) per second—enough for 100 million Zoom sessions (according to fiber expert Jeff Hecht)!

In a previous blog, we also discussed how installing fiber optics could help your business, stating…
