The Rise of Fiber Optics in 2024

Although technology has been modernizing for years, it is expected that by 2024 the changes will be even more drastic.

The fact is that we are in a technological era in which innovation is taking place in shorter and shorter times. Therefore, the cycles are short-lived and the companies that offer Internet services to citizens are continuously striving to offer better transmission quality, faster connectivity, etc.

Competitiveness among companies is a priority in all areas, and the technological area is one of the most competitive niches.

2024 the year of fiber optics

For this new year, it is expected that copper connections will be gradually shut down, so this requires moving into the era of fiber optic networks that are the next generation.

If you are wondering why fiber optics is the technology of the future, this is because it is a network that offers higher speed as well as the capacity to function as a high quality service provider.

Unlike traditional copper cables, fiber optics does not suffer from electromagnetic interference and can carry large amounts of data at amazing speeds.

Fiber optics the ally of the environment

In addition to the above benefits, the environmental impact is much lower compared to copper connections. As if this were not enough, fiber optic latency is much lower.

Among the most outstanding environmental benefits of fiber optics we can mention the most relevant ones. These are: energy efficiency, use of less materials, greater durability, and reduction of CO₂ emissions.

Another environmental highlight is the lower physical impact of fiber optic installation compared to other telecommunications infrastructures. Fiber optic installation requires less physical space and less heavy equipment compared to traditional cabling infrastructures. This means less disruption to the natural environment during the installation process and a significant reduction in the physical footprint of telecommunications networks. In addition, optical fiber can be deployed along existing routes, such as utility ducts or rail lines, which further minimizes its environmental impact by avoiding the need to open up new areas of land.

With all of the above in mind, this is expected to be a promising year in terms of technology and its evolution and transformation around fiber optics.
