Fibre optic cables have the ability to send bulk amounts of information at blistering speeds. This technology is largely used in the formation of internet cables.
Defense is another significant area where optical fibres are extensively used. These cables are suitable for transmission of data in aerospace and military applications that require high data security. Optical fibres present a sturdy and robust communication medium that makes it useful in creating wirings in aeroplanes, hydrophones for Seismics and SONARs purposes.
