Using Google’s 10,000-km-Long Underwater Fiber-Optic Cable as a Seafloor Seismic Sensor
Using “Curie” — Google’s 10,000-kilometer-long underwater fiber-optic cable connecting Los Angeles, California and Valparaiso, Chile — researchers have demonstrated a novel method for detecting deep-sea seismic activity and waves at the ocean’s surface. The approach, which monitors the traffic that courses ceaselessly through networks of transcontinental telecommunication cables, successfully detected storm swell events and earthquakes across a nine-month observation period.
Three Basic Components of a Fiber Optic Cable
There are lots of choices when it comes to fiber optic cables like LC multimode fiber patch cord, or LC multimode duplex fiber optic path cable. Standardly, a fiber optic cable has three basic components which are the core, the light signals and the coating. We shall be discussing them in detail. Core The core carries the light. It is the smallest and most important part of the optical fiber. The core of the optical fiber is usually made of glass although some are of plastic.
What is the Internet of Things?
In a wide sense, the term “IoT” covers everything that is related to internet. Most especially, it is used for items that do talk to each other. The internet of things refers to devices. Some of which are sensors to smartphones and wearables which are connected together. The gathering of information is made possible by combining these connected devices with automated systems. They also help in analyzing the information and creating action to help someone with a particular tas
History of telecommunication in Nigeria
Telecommunication is a big network of different companies. It includes TV, radio, mobile phones, Internet, and fixed telephones. It is curious to learn the history of telecommunication in Nigeria and what companies present in the local market today. Fixed phones and telegraph in Nigeria The telecommunication industry history started in 1886. The first cable connected Lagos with London that year. The country was governed by Great Britain back then, so it was important to have
