The purpose of Optical Fibre Communications can be put very simply, it is to replace electric currents and copper wires in all telecommunications systems by glass fibres and light, probably laser light This is a revolutionary undertaking because copper wire and electric currents have served us well for over a hundred years, and seem almost a fundamental fact of life.
