who lives in a rural neighborhood, one of the most exciting things we have
happening is a new Internet service provider coming in to provide fiber-to the-home (FTTH). Since I work in the industry, I
know what it means for our small city to have the ability to offer this
service. But as I talk to my friends and neighbors about it, they all ask the
having fiber mean?”
I tell them
about the capabilities of what fiber can do, compared to the offerings we
currently have. I talk about fiber’s ability to keep up with the growing needs
of bandwidth in their homes. I talk about how the companies that they use every
day for media streaming, social media, online shopping or even their cellular
service all rely on fiber optics to keep up with needs of customers like
themselves. When they ask me how I know all this, I tell them, “I work for
CommScope. It’s what we do.”
Just like my
neighbors and friends, I know that even our customers and partners have
questions about fiber. We are hosting an hour-long chat on our Twitter
page on all things fiber
on Thursday, Aug. 30 at 11 am EDT (4 pm GMT). The following CommScope fiber optic
experts—me included—will be online to answer questions about several topics, such
as multimode and singlemode fiber, automation, industry standards and more:
