The growth of telecommunications is expected to continue, spurred on by several factors, including the globalization of the world economy, the strong dependence of modern industry and society on telecommunications and information systems, and the public demand for access to information. Indeed, the continuous increasing demand for high information capacity systems assures the presence of fiber optical communications systems in the information era.
