Expert Commentary: Fiber Optics at the Core of Connectivity

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

The continued explosion in the demand for bandwidth has become a notable issue for fiber optics. This is spurred by the growth of existing applications such as video and social networking, and the addition of new applications that require more data.

DAVID J. DIGIOVANNI, OFS

In the last 10 years, the combination of ever-increasing computational power and readily available bandwidth has stimulated advances in data science that have greatly increased the value of data, leading to a data revolution. The ubiquity of concepts such as artificial intelligence, big data, data analytics, machine learning and the Internet of Things are enabled by the vast computational capability of the cloud and the connectivity that is anticipated from 5G. Today, the most significant breakthrough in fiber optics is simply that fiber optics itself has scaled to keep pace with demand...Read full article
