Networking 101: What are Fiber Optics?

February 24, 2012 - 3 Comments

Man alive these Master Classes for engineers or anyone who is just ‘technically’ curious are really popular!  This one is rocketing up the charts!

Jimmy Ray starts off easy with some interesting history but then dives right off the deep end like normal explaining like only he can.   Let us know what you think and drop a comment if you can identify BOTH of his shirts.  (Double bonus for interesting trivia on either)

  1. Easy learning..

  2. Great and easy to understand explanation of the FO basics! I will try that experiment with the bottle 🙂

  3. That is very interesting, as we have been looking to FO for our renovations, but never ACTUALLY knew what or how it works.
    Now i know enough to put together a SWMS which we need in Australia if we handle new or dangerous materials such as Fibre Optics
