Latency in Fiber Optic Networks

Posted by Kevin Miller on Mon, Aug 1, 2011 @ 11:08 AM

The term latency refers to the time delay in a particular system. For communications systems, latency is an important factor, because transmission delays can affect the quality and reliability of the system. In the case of fiber optic networks, latency is the time delay that affects light as it travels through the fiber optic network.
