Fiber Technologies This lesson covers fiber technologies; which have the potential to surpass the speeds of all other wireless technologies. They do not transmit their signals over metal cables, rather the use light wavelengths over class or plastic rods to transmit signals and light of much faster then electrical impulses. There are a number of fiber technologies:
- Synchronous optical networks (SONET)
- Synchronous digital hierarchy (European standard)
- Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing
- Passive Optical Network (PON)
- Optical Line Terminal (OLT)
- Optical Network Unit
