What I Learned About Fibre Optics

There are not many businesses that can say they are untouched by the advances of technology and it has become a theme, where a business must go with the stream or be left behind. Expanding beyond what is now recognised as old technology is the creation of Fibre Optics and Fibre Optics Optical Transceivers, and now industries are turning towards the advantages of this technology to ensure a level effectiveness regarding the way in which they network and remain online. This is why so many companies turn toward the high tech products that ProLabs has to offer. As it has now become a case of go with or be left behind.


Fibre Optics

How many practical applications can there be by streaming light down a plastic pipe? Well, just as electricity can power machinery, beams of light power and carry sources of information. People within society rarely notice how common fibre-optic cables have become, which is mostly due to the laser-powered signals they carry are actually flickering beneath our feet. The industries that are now using this technology is now countless and is still expanding, but how does it help with businesses.


Computer networks

Fibre Optic cables are now the most common and effective way of carrying information over long distances. This is because they have three huge advantages over old copper cables:

Less attenuation (signal loss):
 Information travels 10 times further until it needs amplifying—which makes fibre networks simpler and cheaper to operate and maintain.

No interference:
Fortunately, unlike with copper cables, fibre optics does not have any “crosstalk” (electromagnetic interference) between fibres, so they transmit information more reliably with better signal quality and carry information more efficiently.

Higher bandwidth:
Fibre-optic cables carry far more data than copper cables of the same diameter meaning that all data is being transferred without interruption but with higher quantity.


What Does This Mean For My Business?

We most commonly wish to see the differences with our own eyes to be certain we have made the best choice. However, with technology like Fibre Optics, the changes that you will  see is the transformation of network and communication. This means, the most likely change above all, is consistency and efficiency. By turning to Fibre Optics Optical Transceivers, communicating is now easier, more reliable and furthermore, whilst you are transferring data, it will be without disruption. As a result, Fibre Optics is not only more effective, more efficient, it is also incredibly cheaper to maintain.


More individuals are realising that it is what goes on behind there scenes that help their businesses only in this case, it is what goes on beneath the ground. This is why people have been seeking out companies like ProLabs to ensure all of their systems will function without default.

Why Choose Workplace Mental Health Training Professionals

It has been many years since my recovery from an array of Anxiety Disorders and whilst it is true that all Anxiety Disorders share similar manifestations, they are experienced in uniquely debilitating ways. I previously suffered from GAD, Agoraphobia, OCD and also with a Panic disorder, of which all became beasts that were forged by each other’s nature. Fortunately, I was able to encounter the correct information, enabling me to practice a Self-Help method of recovery. Many years down the line, I have been given the opportunity to write for Mental Health Training Professionals such as Clearfocus who are equally as passionate about helping others by taking their expertise to working environments.

As it was for me, so too is it for others.

Unfortunately, most who suffer from Mental Health issues such as Anxiety rarely find sufficient help from those around them. Anxiety has become a silent suffering and has therefore created tension amongst peers within the workplace. Something I have found through Mental Health Training professionals is their ability to relinquish stigma. This is ultimately causing a growth in awareness within working environments and a result, employees are gaining the confidence to speak out and find effective help. As I have seen it through my own experience, those who suffer do not wish to prolong their suffering but neither do they want to be labelled or judged. Often this causes individuals to internalise and attempt to suppress their issue, which remains a concern because efforts are made to hide Mental Illness from others rather than dealing with the Mental Health problem itself. Which again, concludes the benefits of companies turning to Mental Health Training professionals to raise these subjects within the workplace.

Help should not be a problem which is separate to Mental Health, it should naturally be there for those who need it and after all, help is indeed accessible. However, we must encourage individuals to understand that it is ok to ask for guidance through making Mental Health an open subject. This for me is achieved by employers bring forward Mental Health Training Professionals to interact with employees and naturally dissolve taboo.
