Since time immemorial we have been in awe of the wonders of technology. Innovations in technology impact us in many ways and bring about changes in our lifestyles. It has made our life lightning speed fast and we are completely enamored by the gifts of technology. Internet being one such gift of technology has made itself indispensable to the lives of individual. Nevertheless there is constant effort to better this very gift of technology so that it becomes lightning fast. The only effective way to deliver this type of future in which everything is surfed at break neck speed is with a fiber optic based infrastructure that primarily uses fiber optic cable. Besides offering significant increase in connection speed, fiber optic networks offer a tremendous capacity to keep up with any new technological advances.

Fiber optic cable is a cable composing of different layers. The optical fiber elements are typically individually coated with plastic layers and contained in a protective tube suitable for the environment where the cable will be deployed. It is used to relay signals at very fast speed. It is generally made of glass that is long lasting and even stronger than copper and more able to retain its transmission properties after physical stress such as weight strain, or even attack by rats and cockatoos. The fiber that is installed in fiber optic cable is different from copper: in good quality coatings, inside ducts, or in the case of newer systems, encased entirely by electrical transmission wires.

Apart from using a fiber optic cable for relay of data we can use a wireless mode of data transfer but the advantage of using an fiber optic cable lies in the fact that there is no loss of data and much more data can be encoded and sent with fiber optics, and the effective bandwidths are always going to be larger. That's not to say that wireless solutions are poor, rather they have a place that complements the offerings of fiber optical systems.

A form of fiber optic cable is HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) that is a compact audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data. It represents a digital alternative to consumer analog standards, like radio frequency (RF), coaxial cable, composite video, S-Video, SCART, component video, D-Terminal, and VGA. Coming in a variety of different types they are meant to bring sophistication to the world of technology.
