There is a rapid change and transformation in technology. 5G, internet of things (IoT), industry 4.0, autonomous driving cars, smart cities, artificial intelligence, holograms, 3D conversations etc. It will soon enter our busy lives. Of course, dreams also develop in parallel with this and goals are realized faster than yesterday. In such an environment, “fiber optic” solutions that are fast, provide data security and cyber security, are error-free, and are not affected by electrical noise, take on the role of the locomotive.
Noting that the fiber internet infrastructure in our country will increase exponentially in the next 5 years, Canovate Group Pre-Sales Support Manager Kaan Yetişgen said:
“The number of broadband internet subscribers, which was 2016 million 10 thousand at the end of 500, reached 2020 million 16 thousand at the end of 735. Within this ratio, fiber internet increased from 2 million subscribers to 4 million subscribers, achieving a growth of 100%. Today, fiber optic infrastructure represents a 25% share in fixed broadband. It is aimed that the remaining 12 million subscribers will turn into fiber internet in a short time. In the next 5 years, 60-70% of big cities, especially Istanbul, are expected to reach fiber internet infrastructure, and it is foreseen to invest approximately 5 billion TL in infrastructure for this business. If this happens, by the end of the next 5 years, approximately 55 million people will have access to fiber internet.” said.
The future is built on fiber
Evaluating the present and future of fiber optic infrastructure, Kaan Yetişgen said:
“As it is known, today, 30G speed can be achieved at distances below 40 meters with copper cables, but as the speed increases, the distance becomes shorter. In short, copper cables are distance dependent. However, there is no such problem with fiber cable. Today, up to 80 km, 4 Terabit/sec data transfer is possible and additionally it provides security against cyber attacks. For this reason, fiber optic devices and systems are being developed in this direction, as they are unrivaled with these features. To give an example, reaching the internet speed of 178 Terabits/s (3 thousand Gigabits/sec) via 319 thousand km fiber in Japan, this time over the 319 Terabit/s record in England a year ago, shows the enormousness of the work on this subject. and reveals its greatness.” he said.
Fiber to the table (FTTD), the most secure option for data and cybersecurity
Underlining that the most secure option for data and cyber security is fiber optic solutions (fiber FTTD to the table), Kaan Yetişgen said:
“In recent years, data security and cybersecurity issues have been on the main agendas of governments and companies. In devices where very large files are downloaded from the Internet, fiber connections are used in many institutions and companies (such as ministries, security institutions, financial enterprises) that need data security and cyber security, even up to the desk and even to the computer. said.
Fiber solutions provide 20-30% cost advantage
Stating that fiber and copper solutions can compete with each other in structured cabling, Kaan Yetişgen continued his speech as follows:
“Today, in structured cabling, copper (CAT cables) can reach 40G, while fiber can reach 100G Base-T LAN speeds. Set top box, game consoles, Access points, computers, smart devices etc. almost all of them have copper ethernet port connections. On the fiber side, media converters, fiber ethernet cards, SFPs have entered our daily lives. The development and widespread use of fiber technologies has also been reflected in the prices, enabling copper and fiber solutions to compete with each other. In structured cabling, fiber-to-table solutions (FTTD) also provide a cost advantage of 20-30%. As a result; In a period when 319 thousand Gigabit/sec internet speed is achieved, especially in our workplaces and factories, to go with fiber optic structured cabling, which enables much less active device installation, and fiber to the table (FTTD); it will be correct in every sense in terms of both lower cost than copper and embracing the future. In today's world, we should invest in "fiber", not copper. As Canovate Group, we are a group of companies that have been producing advanced technology focused on R&D and innovation for 42 years. We are one of the top 10 global companies in the world with our technology and portfolio in fiber optic systems and data centers. In addition to the operators in our country, more than 40 global operators abroad, such as Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and Verizon, use Canovate's fiber optic infrastructure products in their global fiber optic infrastructure investments.” he said.
