Fiber Optic is a flexible and transparent fiber made of very pure glass not much bigger than a human hair that acts as light pipe to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber. In this project, we assess the Network of National University of Rwanda and the impact of the fiber optic in this network. The fiber optics, as seen in our project have changed the daily life of many workers in this university throughout the high bandwidth available with fiber optic connectivity.
We have seen that the company?s provider of network in Rwanda can implement fiber optic in order to deliver a reliable service to their customer.
However the bandwidth of fiber optic is usually greater than other media cables and depending on the properties of a pure glass of the core which make easy the total internal reflection of light inside the core and the cladding of the fiber. The fiber optic grounded wire are allowed to transfer more data and does not radiate electromagnetic wave in space.
To The Almighty GOD
This project is dedicated
I owe much thanks to the almighty God for his help and guidance may this simple word express my respect to him.
I would also like to express my appreciation to Dr. Celestin TWIZERE for his tireless efforts to guide us and supervise my work and make it a success through encouragement and advices.
I am very grateful to my mother NTABUGI JEANNINE for her kindly moral and financially support.
With respect, I express my special thanks to lectures and staffs members of the faculty of Applied Sciences at National University of Rwanda; My sincere thanks go also to Mr. NDUSHABANDI JEAN BOSCO for his collaborating efforts to provide needed information to the achievement of this project.
I wish to extend my sincere gratitude thanks to all classmates and relatives who have directly or indirectly helped me and rendered great moral encouragement.
