The speed of light sets the maximum possible rate for transmission of information, in excess of 108 meters per second. Light pulses in optical fibers carry bits of data around the world in sub-second time frame, enabling interactive global communications. There is a constant demand for increasing the network performance in view of steadily growing information flows. It is envisioned that the presently required multiple conversions between optical pulses and electronic signals at network hubs...[Show more]
