SCOPE AND JOB OPPERTUNITIES OF FIBER OPTICS

This Technology dates back several decades.The use and demand for fiber optics in tele communication system has reached tremendously and fiber optics applications are numerous now. Now a days all the multi national companies need goodd ,secure reliable systems to transfer datas.All television channels and local cable television companies also use fiber for delivery of digital video and data services. Fiber optics technicians work for telephone companies, cable companies, and computer networking businesses. They may also work as freelancers, hiring on with companies on special installation projects.

     Digital transmissions will soon be the norm for telecommunications— not only do modern offices require data communications systems, but cable companies are investing in fiber optics to offer digital TV and cable, as well as quality phone service. Also, the cost of fiber is drop ping, which means more companies will invest in fiber optics. As a result, experienced fiber optics assemblers and installers will find plenty of job opportunities.

More over highways with intelligent traffic lights toll booths use fiber optics.Biomedical ,space,military ,automotive ,industrial sectors also use fiber optics
In India, Europe and Gulf countries,more and more cabling projects become adept at using fiber optic cable ,many commercial and residential projects are requiring fiber optics proffessionals.It offers competitive salaries and excellent benefits. . Optical fiber is also used extensively for transmission of data signals. Large corporations, banks, universities, Wall Street firms, and others own private networks. These firms need secure, reliable systems to transfer computer and monetary information between buildings, to the desktop terminal or computer, and around the world.
