If really by the end 2013 80% of the data traffic would be generated by home, then the much fantasized wireless capacities would just give in to exhaustion.
Will every household have its own fiber? That’s the question encountered by many in the telecommunications arena. According to a research by ABI, total FTTH subscribers will reach 106 million mark by 2014.
Most subscribers of internet in the country log in to the web via copper cables. Since these wires have limited capacity, therefore a bottleneck is formed for interactive multimedia usage over the web. Its also a limitation for advancing technologies.
Fiber Optic cables can produce variable speeds that depend on price; from DSL’s 1.5 Mbps to speeds beyond 2.5 Gbps. “Direct Fiber” is the one preferred by big companies which can afford the high costs involved. This fiber goes directly to the customer, thus assuring maximum bandwidth. The “shared fiber” can have two architectures: the Active Optical Network and the Passive Optical Network.
In the active optical network, signals are distributed only to the subscriber who is the only authorized one. This distribution is done by a switch, router or a multiplexer.
Most common of the active optical networks is the active Ethernet. It is literally similar but purposefully different to the Ethernet deployed in schools and businesses. The main difference is that the active Ethernet connects homes and buildings to a central office rather than equipment within vicinity. fiber optics communication in Pakistan
The sequel of this article will range from Passive Optical Network to the Pakistani aspect of the technology.
