Title Digital communications
Description
  • Optical-fibre communications became commercially viable in the 1970s and innovation continues today. This free course, Digital communications, will illustrate how very high data rates can be transmitted over long distances through optical fibres. You will learn how these fibres are linked, examine the technology used and assess the future direction of this continually developing area of communication. <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/information-and-communication-technologies/digital-communications/content-section-0" /> First published on Mon, 25 Jul 2011 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/information-and-communication-technologies/digital-communications/content-section-0">Digital communications</a>.

Optical fibre has completely superseded copper wires as the primary medium for cabled transmission over long distances. As demand for capacity has risen, fibre is now being used even in LANs and the access network. An understanding of optical-fibre communications is therefore very important for anyone with an interest in digital communications.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 3 study in <a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/computing-and-it?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Computing &amp; IT</a></p>
