Fiber Optics

What is Fiber Optics?

Fiber optics, or optical fibers, are long, thin strands of carefully drawn glass about the diameter of a human hair. These strands are arranged in bundles called optical cables. … So, the optical fiber transmits “data” by light to a receiving end, where the light signal is decoded as data.

Through a process known as total internal reflection, light rays beamed into the fiber can propagate within the core for great distances with remarkably little attenuation, or reduction in intensity. The degree of attenuation over distance varies according to the wavelength of the light and to the composition of the fiber.

Basically, light travels in wavelengths that in turn transfers the data at remarkable speed.

One Eighty has installed fibre for Hotels, Winery’s, internal home fibre, even large Production warehouses and offices, and is no stranger to the process or implementation of Fibre installations.  Being backed with it’s own Fibre splicing machines and hardware, One Eighty can assist as soon as it is needed, whether a brand new installation or if a fibre break is apparent.
