Summary
  • Many computer manufacturers are slowly accepting fiber optic technology despite technology advances. Telecommunication vendors have adapted fiber optics for benefits such as high data transmission speed, increased security, and reduced interference. Some computer manufacturers develop major fiber optic products, but others are limiting their efforts or offering fiber optic systems bought through an OEM basis from other suppliers. Some critics of fiber optic technology say other means of transmission are more cost-effective. The relative slow acceptance of fiber optics is due to lack of standards and lack of support from major vendors such as IBM. Companies with fiber optic products include: NCR Corp; Cray Research; ETA systems; and Control Data Corp.
