What has fiber optic tech- nology in common with the development of 5G


So far, fiber optic transmission is the fastest and most capacious area of known transmission media. Consequently, the connection between base stations and last mile transmitters is performed by fiber optic cables. Currently, fiber production companies, including FIBRAIN, focus on the minimization of the construction of optical fiber and increasing their capacity, fibers with a reduced diameter from 245 (250) to 195 (200 µm after colouring) are produced, tight tubes, e.g. micro cable 576-fiber (24 tubes per 24 F) has a diameter of 11.4 mm. The multi-core fiber structures are ready (2 years ago we launched the test installation on the fiber core 7), so far the problem is their commercial/installer link to existing single-mode cores.

Generally, when we are looking at plans of linking the world, we are becoming a global IT village with the access to more efficient networks, among others, operator, state, metropolitan, company and home. In addition, fiber optic networks increase the security of countries and their inhabitants, because they can be used to monitor bumps, earthquakes, damage to pipelines, leak tightness of anti-flood embankments and other catastrophic events. Moreover, operators can offer on their fiber optic networks information relevant to society, different kinds of alerts such as weather, smog, traffic information etc., and therefore fiber is dielectric, thus the communication is resistant to EMC interference.

FIBRAIN every day and for more than 20 years already, produces fiber optic cables, thus the company knows all the issues mentioned above perfectly.

Therefore, our Fiber Optic Technologies & Photonics Manufacturing Laboratory Center, as the only one in Poland and one of the few centers in Europe, achieved commercial capacity of producing optical fiber, so it can be easily stated that our participation in the development of 5G technology is unprecedented. FIBRAIN is constantly developing new and more advanced techniques with solutions in order to be able to meet the next challenges posed by the twenty-first century.
