Optical fibers are the main medium for long distance transmission of telecommunication data. As such, fibers form the key backbone infrastructure for the internet and all its rapidly growing applications such as 5G telephony, social media Apps and video streaming.

The bandwidth of data transmission worldwide continues to increase significantly and requires advances in all aspects of network technology, including fibers. As a result, we wok very closely with our customers to meet their evolving measurement requirements. PFO invests heavily in R&D and we have recently added an OTDR-based instrument to our portfolio helping customers to increase their manufacturing throughput at reduced cost.
