What are fiber optics?

Fiber Optics 101

What, exactly, is fiber optics? It's a type of technology that uses glass or plastic threads to transmit data. A fiber optic cable is composed of a bunch of glass threads, each of which is able to transmit messages adapted onto light waves. This is a very technical definition but, in simpler terms, it's those tiny, twinkling strands (like the ones seen on a LED artificial fiber optic Christmas tree that illuminate your family room with dazzling colors).

*When you go with a fiber optic tree you can create a light source that goes beyond simple twinkle lights and ornaments and makes a statement.
