Our current “age of technology” is the product of many brilliant inventions and discoveries, but it is our capability to transmit information, and the media we use to do it, that is conceivably most responsible for its evolution. Progressing from the copper wire of a century ago to today’s fiber optic cable, our increasing capability to transmit more information, more quickly and over longer distances has stretched the boundaries of our technological development in all areas. Today’s low-loss glass fiber optic cable offers almost infinite bandwidth and unique advantages over all previously developed transmission media.


Nathan Rosenberg Observes when discussing innovation in an article:

Perhaps the most profound impact of the laser has been in telecommunications where, in combination with fiber optics, it is revolutionizing transmission. (Rosenberg 172)

The real interest in optical communication was stimulated with the invention of the laser in early 1960’s. Proposals for using optical fibers to avoid degradation of the optical signal while proliferating through the atmosphere were made almost simultaneously in 1966. Early systems exhibited high attenuation (1000 dB/km). Today, less than 40 years of the decrease of less than 0.2 dB/km is easily attained for a carrier wavelength of 1.55 µm.
