Fiber engineering isn’t new, although the concept is more mainstream today, thanks to fiber optics and 5G technology. We’ve depended on local area networking (LAN) and internet connectivity for decades. While distance limits connectivity with DSL, fiber engineering offers high-speed connections with better performance at greater distances.
The challenge is in making fiber connections widely available.
Build It and They Will Come
Fiber engineering benefits everyone from governments that use fiber networks to accelerate economic development to cable operators and mobile providers. Ultimately, this advanced technology helps businesses and the economy run smoother. Fiber engineering is a worldwide effort that countries and businesses must invest in to move their technology capabilities into the future.
Fiber Optic Cable Connects the World
From communications technology to science and medicine, fiber engineering advances industry. 5G improves the speed, efficiency, and reliability of wireless communications. And it’s currently the fastest way to transmit data.
Today, engineers are building underwater cable more powerful than ever before; however, creating new lines remains a painstaking endeavor. The good news is that it increases global reach, and the world is getting on board.
Fiber Engineering and Machine Learning
Mobile and smart devices, data storage, and cloud computing create high demands on our internet connections. But it just so happens that emergent technology will help the future of fiber engineering along with the higher demands. Analysts predict the global fiber optics market to grow to $9 billion by 2025, and machine learning will have the most significant impact on how we adjust.
AI applications are indeed the future of fiber engineering. In fact, fiber optics and machine learning will mutually transform each other and almost every industry on the planet.
The future of fiber engineering is now, and every day we are advancing in dramatic ways that guarantee a bright future for fiber optics.
