Fibre optics consists of glass threads that are able to transmit messages modulated into form of light waves. These fibre optic connectors utilize plastic or glass threads to be able to transmit data. There are several advantages fibre optic cables have over the standard metal communication lines:
• Fibre optic cable has significantly more bandwidth compared to metal wires which means that they are capable of carrying more data.
• A fibre optics cable is much lighter and thinner than common metal cables.
• Fibre optic cabling is less susceptible and vulnerable to interference than metal cabling.
• Data can be digitally transmitted instead of analogically.

Fibre optic network is an extremely well-known technology for LAN – Local Area Networks. Additionally, various telephone companies are consistently replacing standard telephone cables with fibre optics.

Some of the major applications of fibre optics other than communications include:
• Sensors – Fibre optics can be utilized as sensors to measure temperature, strain, pressure and other quantities by a modified fiber to modulate the phase, wavelength, intensity, polarization or travel time of light in the fiber.
• Power Transmission – Fibre optics is capable of transmitting power via photovoltaic cell to convert light into electricity. This is particularly useful in situations where metallic conductor should not be present like in the case of use near an MRI machine. These are also helpful in high-powered antenna elements and various measurement devices utilized in high-voltage transmission device.
• Optical fibre lamps provide illumination in numerous decorative applications such as toys, art, signs and artificial Christmas trees.
• Fibre optics is used in endoscope to view the objects through a small hole.

Fibre optics in Singapore is readily accessible for everyone through The Green Book. The online directory contains comprehensive lists of top grade fibre optics, manufactured from various companies and businesses, used on air, sea, ground, and even on space missions with the respective company information to provide better understanding on specific fibre optic requirement.
