Summary
From spoken-word conversations to real-time video, a dazzling array of communication options are now available at the touch (or click) of a button. This video explores the concepts and technologies at the heart of fiber-optic communication. Demonstrations and discussions focus on basic principles of telephone systems and state-of-the-art optical technology; distances that light can travel through glass fiber as shown on a massive drum of cable; how the capacity of fiber optic cable is continually growing; the emerging role of phototonic switches; the use of radio wave links and 3G technology in automotive communication systems; bus and module communication systems; GPS updates, and the monitoring of wear and tear as well as maintenance requirements in automotive technology
