The fibre terminatorFibre terminator The fibre terminator is a passive element placed inside the property unit that defines the termination point of the optical fibre used to connect the P.U. to the Open Fiber access network. The terminator is connected to the ONT (Optical Network Termination) and router, through which the user will be able to take advantage of all fibre optic connectivity services. is a passive element placed inside the property unit that defines the termination point of the optical fibreOptical fibre A cable made of glass fibre through which a light signal is transmitted over long distances for broadband network access. Compared to copper cables, optical fibre can transmit signals much faster, up to 40 Gigabits per second. It is therefore ideal for quickly transferring large amounts of data; it is also unaffected by external interference (electromagnetic interference, temperature variations, etc.). While fibre optics certainly offers the advantage of fast, high-quality and secure data transmission, its high installation cost is a drawback for network builders.

In a computer network, the devices that generate, route and terminate data are called network nodes.. The terminator is connected to the ONT (Optical Network Termination) and routerRouter A network device that routes data packets between different networks or between sub-networks of the same network. Large carrier routers establish the traffic paths on the Internet backbone, while the more familiar home routers merely exchange packets between the home network and the Operator’s network, which in turn feeds into the worldwide Internet., through which the user will be able to take advantage of all fibre optic connectivity services.

Fiber Sensing: optical fibre is also a sensor
Fiber Sensing, also known as ‘distributed sensing’, is a technology that enables continuous measurements of seismic waves in real time over the entire length of a fibre optic cable. Let’s take a look at its applications together.
