Next Generation NetworkNetwork In computer language, the term network defines a set of hardware and software devices which, when linked together, enable the exchange and sharing of resources, data or information. In a computer network, the devices that generate, route and terminate data are called network nodes. is the next-generation access network, which is based on 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.

Broadband organises different channels, conveying different content in the form of data, such as Internet radio, animation, audio files and high-definition video. and ultra-broadband access 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.
