By C. David Chaffee

A re-working of C.D. Chaffee's formerly released The Rewiring ofAmerica (Academia, 1988), this specialist booklet describes the fiber optics revolution. there were many alterations within the fiber optics box because the book's first ebook. those contain advances in optical networking; the extra bandwidth created via the web and linked information prone; liberalization of the worldwide telecommunications undefined; and the rewiring of the world's oceans with fiber optics. Building the worldwide Fiber Optics Superhighway info these types of advancements. C.D. Chaffee writes: `One factor is obvious: as our networks turn into basically data-driven, they should be equipped otherwise, that allows you to deal with information first, but in addition voice. it's a diversified manner of the world.'

Which resurrected abandoned coal tunnels underneath the windy city to reconnect office buildings with new fiber. Other interesting CAPs and competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) have emerged. ) For example Nextlink Communications, which deployed over 2000 route miles of optical fiber cable by 1998 in 32 markets. At the time of this writing the mobile telephone and satellite maven Craig McCaw was its leading shareholder. While NextLink has grown appreciably in capital investment, a satellite venture in which McCaw was involved, Iridium, is going out of business.

The end result was that most traditional carriers would become customers 27 28 CHAPTER 2 Why have all the submarine fiber optic networks been successful? Since there was more competition, and more available bandwidth, we would have assumed numerous mergers and failures. Schaefer compares the situation to what was happening with AT&T. Ever since divestiture the carrier has been losing market share, so that by 1998, it had only 50–60% of the total long-distance business. Why then did AT&T’s revenues continue to grow during that period?

16 times. The combined carrier would have annual Internet sales of more than $2 billion—and grow at the rate of 70%. The union of a new fiber optics such as WorldCom, which prides itself on putting in the newest networking, and MCI, which is still trying in some respects to obtain the most from its entrenched fiber base, should be interesting. One thing is certain: Both achieved their current positions by being fiber innovators, and that trend is expected to continue. New national fiber optic carriers have enlivened the marketplace.
