quoteyou heard right.I hear that fiber optics provide the fastest internet connections out there
quoteover long range, like that between you and the ISP, or between countries, bundles of optical fiber cables transmit signals in the form of light, rather than electricity. this is because while light travels at the speed of..well...light, its biggest advantage is that while traveling through these fibers, there is very little signal loss, compared to normal electrical cables, because there is less noise interference (the magnetic field of earth for example will introduce fluctuations in to the electrons in the electric cables, causing the signal within to be altered). there is also less attentuation, which is the loss of intensity in the signal. after a certain distance, there has to be something to boost, or amplify the signal again. this amplification not only amplifies the signal, but also the noise that it picked up along the way. because there is almost no noise picked up by light signals, the signal itself can be amplified without any real noise issues, and because light can travel a much longer distance before attenuation becomes a problem, there are fewer amplification stations that the signal has to go through. and finally, the fewer times light has to be amplified, the fewer delays there are, meaning the signal reaches its final destination quicker.Can anyone tell me how does an internet connection work under fiber optic cables
quotedefine a small community. if you want to wire up an entire building, or block, its a waste of money. the cabling is expensive, and all the advantages of fiber optics are going to be on too small a scale to have any benefits. you would be better off wiring up with normal network cables. CAT5 (the standard network or ethernet cable) can carry a signal up to 100 meters. if whatever place you want to network is larger than the cables can reach, you can use a signal boosted wifi network, either on everything to be networked, or just on those devices that are too far away.Do these cables need to be connected to a telephone company somehow? I am wondering whether it is possible to set up our own fiber optics network within a small community for super fast internet.
