Optical fiber is a transmission medium favored for applications that involve high bandwidth and require long distance transmission (up to 80km) and complete immunity to electrical interference. These factors make it ideal for 3G/LTE/ (Wimax, Femtocell) systems.
Because of LTE, the network is shifting away from circuit-based to packet-based. This shift is expected to drive a growing use of IP/MPLS-based routers and switches rather than TDM or ATM-based systems at cell sites and aggregation centers. It will also drive demand towards data transport systems that have higher packet transport capabilities such as optical packet-switch with 3G/6Gb optical transceivers.
Optical transceiver manufacturer founded in 2000, Formerica is a technology leader of optical solutions for 3G/LTE applications. We promise you light and speed up your pipe!
