What’s Driving the Need for Fiber in Broadcasting?

Christine Williamson

Broadcasting is beginning to rely on fiber for dependable, always-on wired and wireless connectivity. Why? Because of fiber’s ability to provide fast download and upload speeds, maintain signal strength over long distances and ensure less wait time/fewer delays.

Bandwidth demands for broadcasting will continue to increase, calling for new cabling capabilities and infrastructure.

We summarized five trends set to impact broadcasting in the next decade that will require the use of more fiber:

  1. Augmented and virtual reality
  2.  More (and better) cameras
  3. Changing forms of content
  4. IP migration
  5. Over the top streaming
