BT&P technical staff participates in a Fiber optic workshop
The Bureau Telecommunicatie en Post strives to continuously update the knowledge and skills of it’s personnel. During the first week of September 2014 a Fiber optic workshop was held for the technical staff of Bureau Telecommunicatie en Post. The workshop was given by Mr. Rod Oakley from Perpetual Solution. The technical staff can look back at a fruitful week.
Fiber optic is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light forms an electromagnetic carrier wave that is modulated to carry information. Because of its advantages compared to electrical transmission, optical fibers have largely replaced copper wire communications in core networks worldwide. Optical fiber is used by many telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication and cable television signals. The process of communicating using fiber-optics involves the following basic steps: Creating the optical signal involving the use of a transmitter, relaying the signal along the fiber, ensuring that the signal does not become too distorted or weak, receiving the optical signal and converting it into an electrical signal.
