Fiber Optic Symbols

Fiber optics are flexible cables with dielectric filaments of glass or plastic materials capable of transmitting signals through light pulses from one end to the other. This technology is widely used for data transmission over long distances, with a bandwidth greater than metallic electrical cables and immune to electromagnetic interference.
