What do you mean by “fiber,” “high-speed,” and “high-capacity”?

Fiber cable is a bundle of tiny glass strands that can be used to transmit data. The ability to transmit information over the fiber optic cable depends on the hardware (or equipment) on the ends. The hardware, like a light switch, controls the beam of light the information travels on. Actively engaged hardware means fiber is “lit.” Lit fiber is capable of sending very high volumes of data, voice, and images over the network at extremely high speeds.
