For all applications such as 5G services, smart cities, smart factories and the internet of things (IoT), which are spoken within the scope of digital transformation, "fiber optic solutions" are required as the only communication infrastructure that can support these data rates.
Fiber optic-based communications are capable of supporting much higher data rates than other cable types, with the capacity to transmit hundreds of gigabits of data. As the demand for more data density such as IoT (internet of things), smart cities, industry 4.0 applications continues to increase, fiber optic communication offers the best bandwidth and fastest service to enable all these new services.
Noting that fiber optic communication infrastructure is one of the sine qua non of the communication technologies of the future, Canovate Group CTO Kıvanç İlal said:
“Fiber optic infrastructure provides advantages such as communication, security, bandwidth, distance and lower overall cost. It offers the longest lifespan, as it can meet the ever-changing requirements in technology such as IoT, industry 4.0, smart city applications, which are on our agenda. The copper cable infrastructure we currently use will be insufficient in the next 3-4 years, as it does not support new applications such as smart cities and IoT, and the need to renew these systems with fiber optic infrastructure will arise. Fiber optic infrastructure, which is the communication highway of the future, is among the strategic investments for our country. As Canovate Group, we are among the top 10 companies in the world producing end-to-end solutions in the field of fiber optics. In this context, we have a wide range of products ranging from high-capacity optical distribution roofs used in transmission departments of operators to outdoor type distribution cabinets and indoor fiber distribution boxes. We have been supplying these locally produced products to all leading operators in the domestic market for many years. Over 40 operators use our products abroad. Among them, we can mention major global operators such as Vodafone, Verizon, Claro, Deutsche Telecom and Etisalat.
Fiber to the desk provides the highest data rate in the most economical way
Kıvanç İlal, CTO of Canovate Group, who gave information about fiber right up to the desk, continued his speech as follows:
The concept of “Fiber To The Desk” means carrying the fiber optic network infrastructure directly to the user desk. Fiber optic infrastructure is the technology that provides the highest data rate in the most economical way for business centers, plazas, smart factories, hospitals, universities and all businesses with high density of users. As it is known in the world, the ratio of fiber has reached 90% in countries such as South Korea, Japan and Singapore. In our country, which is above the world average, fiber application to homes is around 8-9% and investments to be made in this area will gain momentum in the coming period. As a matter of fact, applications such as e-commerce, online education and virtual meetings, which have increased due to the pandemic for more than a year, have once again shown how vital and strategic investment in fiber optic infrastructure is.
In data security, fiber optic infrastructure is the safest option.
Underlining the importance of fiber optic infrastructure in data security, Kıvanç İlal said:
“Fiber optic infrastructures are extremely essential for data security and cybersecurity. Fiber optic infrastructures are vitally important for institutions and organizations such as ministries, security institutions, financial enterprises. In addition, copper cables, which are currently in heavy use, will be quickly removed from practice in the near future, as they are a transmission channel open to eavesdropping and data theft. At the same time, fiber optic infrastructures provide a cost advantage of 20-30% as they reduce the number of active devices that require high levels of energy and provide ease of maintenance, and are an environmentally friendly technology as it reduces energy use.
