Letters as a way of communicating has been around here for a couple of centuries now and still supports a reasonably large number of people. However, this method or channel of conveying meaning could not adequately serve the diverse needs of people and for that reason innovations have been made. The epitome innovation being the use of fibre optic cable installation as a method to bridge the gap between the time the message was send and when received.

First off, speed. The ability to cut short the distance with reference to time it takes to convey a message from the sender to a recipient is important. In the business world, communication is core in running of any cooperation. These lines enable citizens of Vancouver to access speed of up to 3 to 4 gigabits. In other terms this means one can send and receive 3 gigabytes of data within a second. This implies that one can download a whole movie in the promptness of a second.

If a person sends an email to someone in Seattle, WA, his or her main desire is that the email no matter how big it is it will reach within the shortest time possible. Fibre cables give the solution to this problem. This option cuts short the distance with respect to the time one could alternatively take to convey the message using other methods. This is the core value of this innovation and has seen many organizations consider taking up this system.

No matter how large the consumer consumption is, sales, every company seeks to minimize on the costs and maximize on the profits. With telephone lines, almost every home is connected to a telephone line. And as a result, there is a huge consumption when it comes to communication. However, the cost to install those lines is high considering the manpower needed and the labor input one has to have. This is the reason as to why telecommunication companies are going this way as it is cheaper.

On the other side, both in analysis as an installation process and also the cost of maintenance, fibre optic is way cheaper. Therefore, most companies are opting to use the fibre way. This method has minimum interference as they are underground.

Looking on the side of maintenance, it is way cheaper to have a fibre cable installed than using the poles and lines as characterized in the power lines. In fact, one could argue why electricity companies are not taking up this awesome invention into practice in their own fields. The manpower needed is way low compared to using the overhead method and also the ingenuity.

Lastly, these cables offer minimum electromagnetic interference also commonly referred to Radio-frequency interference, RFI. This is one of the common missuses that go with telecommunication and the general communication. A good example is, one cannot call or talk on phone near a television or a radio. This is because both devices transmit separate and different sets of frequencies which when they collide one can hear a buzzing sound. However for the optic cables, this is a thing of the past.

This is the mother of innovations in the use of lines. It is a globally accepted method and Vancouver stands at the forefront in pushing for this. With the population of its citizens at millions, it is hard to keep watch of what each and every citizen is up to.
