This is because Fibre Optics is just one of the many technologies that we currently use every day and sometimes don’t even realise it. From telecommunications and medicine, to military and exploration capabilities, Fibre Optics is now an integral part of our lives as it helps broaden horizons, save lives and allows us to communicate instantly with people all over the world.

Top Fibre Optic Uses in 2018

Here are just a few of the Top Fibre Optic Uses that have been identified in 2018, all of which you might encounter on an almost daily basis:


The ability to connect to the internet will one day become a basic human right, and Fibre Optics as we know it plays a large part in this process. This will not change in the foreseeable future, and should in our opinion become even more affordable as Fibre Networks are created around the globe. Remember that connectivity not only means communication, but also TV, Computer Networking and as well as global data connectivity.


Improved ability to do research is just one small part of what Fibre Optics is already doing for the Medical Profession. Today Fibre Optics is used for surgery, dentistry operations, and non invasive exploratory medical checkups. Additionally, Fibre Optics is allowing some of the world’s top medical specialists to treat and operate on patients that are thousands of kilometres away via the internet.


Fibre Optics is not just functional, but also beautiful! From Holiday Decorations to advanced illumination options, Fibre Optics can add a little style to decorations, rooms, furniture and buildings.


From sewers to collapsed buildings and underwater ocean research, Fibre Optics can be used to access hard to reach places that would otherwise to hazardous to human and animal health. The automotive industry also uses Fibre Optics as lighting and as a safety feature.

Military and Security

From military systems such as rocket guidance to police surveillance systems (and a whole host of really cool things in-between), Fibre Optics allows for robust and reliable data transmission that is both fast and secure. This makes it perfect for Military and Security Applications.

As can be seen above, there is far more to Fibre Optics than simple fibre to the home or fibre business connectivity. It is now an indispensable part of our everyday life.
