Looking back, many people cannot believe the far we have come in terms of technology and development. A look at life before the existence of technology puts it all in the open. A lot of people do not believe that all this has happened in the pace at which it has. Many questions are being raised in terms of the mental capacity of the ancient human beings and those of today. It has not really been establishes why this has not been happening since the ancient times. Others even ask if it is the issue of resources asking if they were not at their disposition.
There has been a lot of change thanks to the advancement of technology. Each and every area or sector of our lives has experienced a touch of technology. The telecommunication sector is one of the most effected by the presence of technology. The importance of communication is being felt in our day to day lives. With little or no proper communication, the world can be in a disastrous situation. Technology has really impacted this sector in a very big way.
From the old days of its invention up to this moment, the telecommunication industry has seen a lot of change. It has also been able to merge and resulted to the improvement of other industries like the IT, financial services, the media among others. In its conception, it was only managed by a few people in every state and this was mostly governments. Being something new to the market, not many people were conversant with its use but this has changed in the recent days. It has also moved from extreme regulations by the governments to a more open industry. This was mainly because it was a new field and the fear of exploitation and the fact that it was important to the society and could affect both national, security and social interests.
The fiber optic system is seen as the latest form of improvement in the telecommunication industry. This is a way of transmitting information that involves the use of glass threads to transfer data and it basically works by sending light waves through fiber cables and does this by changing electronic signals to light.
This new form of technology is receiving applause because it is different from the old forms.
One of the main advantages is that unlike the old copper cables, it does not depend on electrical signals to transmit information as it uses light that is passed through the glasses from one point to another.
This kind of data transmission because of its use in light covers a long distance of data transmission in a short time.
It also has an extremely high bandwidth that cannot be compared to any other form of data transmission.
It also saves a lot of space by the fact that it is small in size thus making it require less space in its installation.
Wire cables faced a lot of security threats as people discovered their location and used them for other purposes thus destroying them
