Data transmission is the reception and transmission of information between digital devices. This kind of transfer usually takes place via a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.
Data transmission solutions enable the establishment of an efficient and reliable infrastructure, which can be used to connect multi-site organisations, enabling the building of both wide area and local networks, within which users have the ability to share resources and efficiently exchange data. Internet, telephone and video communication services are integrated, and network administration is carried out remotely in a centralised manner.
The key role in this respect is played by security of information exchange and storage, as well as network scalability – this is particularly true in the case of rapidly growing networks. Connecting more endpoints, as well as sending increasing volumes of data to the cloud can result in network congestion, putting strain on the servers and increasing the risk of failure, which can result in data loss.
Choosing the right data transmission solution helps to ensure network flexibility, gives a high degree of infrastructure protection and takes full advantage of optical fibre-based communication. A common security policy, user-friendly management and optimisation of costs related to equipment and people are needed by all companies, and innovative technologies are available to meet expectations: SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) and IP-MPLS (IP Multi-Protocol Label Switching) ensure network flexibility and higher bandwidth. CWDM and DWDM wavelength division multiplexing techniques increase the capacity and throughput of every optical fibre, and state-of-the-art optical modules ensure lossless data transmission. All these solutions are easy and quick to implement, and their vendors ensure their highest quality and reliability – as such, they are a response to current needs of companies from various sectors, which want to build, develop and improve their existing ICT networks.
