MG_8018_small-300x104Since its development back in the 1970s, fiber optic communication has played a significant role in the evolution of the telecommunications industry by changing the way in which data is transmitted. In simple terms, fiber optics entails sending light pulses through an optical fiber with the aid of fiber transmitters. Fiber optics have proven to be much more effective than old-fashioned copper wiring when it comes to the clear and fast transmission of data.

Benefits of a Fiber Optics Transmission System

A fiber optic link system offers the advantage of less signal attenuation when compared to a system that relies upon wire transmission. It also provides greater bandwidth capacity, an important concern in organizations that operate multiple data and broadcast systems or that need room for system expansion as their business grows over time.

“Z-Band Light” Fiber Optics System

Z-Band offers an all-inclusive single mode fiber optic backbone system we call “Z-Band Light.” This cutting-edge system features fiber transmitters, receivers and all the accessories needed to meet the data transmission requirements of your organization. The Z-Band Light fiber backbone is capable of transmitting a full 1Ghz of RF video from head end to closet. When converting to fiber, receivers of coax and a coax backbone are no longer necessary in your facility.
