Innovation

The History of Fiber

For years we have operated within a culture of innovation that has positioned us as the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. In 1970, we ignited the communications revolution by inventing the first low-loss optical fiber for use in telecommunications networks around the world. Since fiber was invented over 40 years ago, our ongoing product and process innovations have helped make possible ever-faster telecommunications networks that link neighborhoods, connect cities, and bridge continents.

Los modos de la luz

Cómo funciona

Claridad brillante a distancia.

Desarrollamos un conjunto de productos de fibra monomodo y multimodo, reconocidos por su diseño innovador y sus aplicaciones prácticas, para todas las aplicaciones de la actualidad. La fibra monomodo tiene un núcleo más pequeño, lo que permite que solo un modo de luz a la vez se mueva a través de esta. Este diseño se usa principalmente en aplicaciones de telefonía en las que la fibra necesita una gran claridad de señal en grandes distancias. La fibra multimodo tiene un núcleo más grande, lo que permite que cientos de modos se muevan a través de la fibra de manera simultánea. La fibra multimodo se usa principalmente para comunicaciones de datos en las redes empresariales, como campus o...
