The purpose of optical-fibre communications is quite revolutionary - namely to introduce a completely new form of transmission line using optical techniques. The transmission distances required can be up to tens of kilometres and the potential applications are seen to be very widespread. In short we wish to replace electric currents and copper wires by glass fibres and light, not only in complete telephone networks but in other communications systems as well, such as aircraft, ships, computers and so on
