    The History Of Optical Fiber

    The History Of Optical Fiber

    Thanks to fiber optics, invented in a Corning lab in 1970, enormous amounts of data, phone calls and video can move around the planet. That movement of data has in turn enabled innovation after innovation, including the internet, cloud, mobile boom, streaming TV, autonomous cars, bitcoin, AI – and whatever comes next. This is that story.
