If you break down what fiber optics encompasses, you will learn how revolutionary this technology is.

When threads or fibers (either glass or plastic) are bundled together, they form a fiber optic cable. This technology is used to manipulate light waves, resulting in the ability to transmit signals across immense distances.

There are several advantages to choosing fiber optics over traditional technology. An abundance of computer data can be transmitted worldwide in a matter of minutes. Signal interference is a prime concern with metal cables, but fiber optic cables have been proven to be much more resilient. The bandwidth of fiber optics amplifies the ability to carry a larger load of data—which is why so many telephone and internet companies have switched over to fiber optics in recent years.

In the modern world of technology-driven data, the need for high-speed transmission continues to grow. The use of fiber optics greatly increases the speed and efficiency of any transmission applications.

ULC employs state-of-the-art metrology including interferometers, surface roughness analyzers, automated optical vision scopes, environmental chambers, spectrophotometers and more.  All testing and certifications are performed in-house.  In addition, inspection data and AS9100 documentation is available per customer request.
