Transceivers are lasers that are wavelength specific and convert electrical data signals from data switches into optical signals. Once this process has been performed the data signals can then be transmitted over optical fiber.
Dark fiber refers to unused or underused fiber optic infrastructure, including optical fibers, fiber cables and repeaters. We have seen people talking about the benefits of deploying dark fiber, but rarely see them discussing how to light up dark fiber. Today we are going to talk about how to light up dark fiber.
