Gone are the days of Mbps, now it is about Gbps. Let’s know the tech behind JIO GigaFiber.
Jio GigaFiber is a fiber to the home (FTTH) broadband service by the Reliance Industries. It provides ultrahigh-definition entertainment on TVs📺, video conferencing, virtual reality gaming🎮, and immersive experiences.
Any FTTH connection, be it Jio, Spectra or Airtel, is a lot better😎 than normal broadband services. This is because the normal broadband services install fiber right until node (street cabinet) from where the connectivity🔗 is extended to your home through copper cable and LAN.
Copper cable is a very old technology☹️ and has a very low-quality data service because of noise/disturbance😖. And LAN connections are also not fast enough since they pass through lots of switches to reach our homes resulting in a loss in speed/bandwidth.
FTTH ensures☝️ the delivery of a communication signal over optical fiber from the operator’s site all the way to your home🏠. It is a much better and faster way to get broadband.
You must be wondering🤔 what it is that makes optical fiber so fast & efficient. Well the answer is that it uses light🔆 instead of electricity⚡ to carry a signal. And this complete transmission line is made of glass in flexible form.
Furthermore, the phenomenon of total internal reflection in optical fiber, due to its shape, makes sure that high bandwidth signals📶 are transmitted over long distances (city to city or even country to country) without degradation.
It is due to an optical fiber that Jio provides such fast internet speeds⏩ at very low prices🤑 and has thus revolutionized broadband in India.
