Event Details

  • It was not until 1970 that scientists at Corning Glass Works created a fiber optic box that had less than a 20dB/km attenuation. This result was achieved by doping silica glass with titanium. Bell Laboratories, along with Morton Panish, Izuo Hayashi and a group from the Physical Institute in Leningrad showcased a semiconductor diode laser that could emit continuous waves at room temperature in 1973.

    In the late 1970’s and 1980’s, telephone companies began to use fiber extensively in their communications networks. In the mid-1980’s Sprint founded the first nationwide, 100 percent digital fiber network.

    A reduction in the cost of long distance systems came in 1986 with the erbium-doped fiber amplifier developed by David Payne of the University of Southampton and Emmanuel Desurvire at Bell Laboratories. The first transatlantic telephone cable went into operation in 1988 utilizing Desurvire’s laser amplification technology.

    Often not considered, it is important to remember that looks really do matter!

    For network equipment manufacturers, two necessary steps are a) testing their devices in the lab to ensure performance specifications and b) demonstrating the devices to potential customers when attempting to close a sale.

    While each may or may not happen at a different point in the process, both are extremely important and the outcome can ultimately determine a win or a loss against a competitor. What they share in common is that both involve utilizing spools of Fiber Patch Panel to connect various devices in order to exactly simulate the intended field network.
