Historically, fiber optic communications have experienced an impressive growth in the long-haul domain due to their inherently large bandwidth and low attenuation and dispersion. Indeed, these characteristics allow for the transmission of a large amount of data over long distances at limited latency,which makes optical fibers the medium of choice for intercontinental communication links.
