Fiber Optics carries lots and lots of data , video and voice on daily basis around the globe. One of the main reasons of using fiber optics is to have secured communications.
Unlike wireless communications the issue of tapping or unauthorised eavesdropping is of the main concern.
But now human managed to find a way on how to tap fiber optics by using the concept of minimum bending radius..
It look easy to tap fiber optics by locating the fiber optics cable but finding the actual fiber core to tap is another story unless you know exactly which fiber core to tap...
I have been in the field of fiber optics since early 1990s. I gained fiber optics skills and knowledge via my working experience as end-user, main contractor and sub-contractor and finally as an optical fiber enterpreneur.
