FIBER OPTIC NETWORKS DEFINITION (continued): … Fiber optic (or "optical fiber") refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light impulses along a glass or plastic wire or fiber.

Most telephone company long-distance lines are now fiber optic.Transmission on fiber optic wire requires repeating at distance intervals. The glass fiber requires more protection within an outer cable than copper.
