Why Fibre Optics is Relevant

With everything becoming more and more digitized, efficiency is very important. In one of the previous blog posts, we discussed the difference between fibre optics and ADSL and through this we saw the significance in fibre has in making our lives easier.

Before analysing the importance of fibre optic cables, it is best that you first understand its uses in your everyday life. This type of cabling has the following purposes:


Connecting to the internet that is basically connecting everyone at more affordable costs;

Enhancing a cable television;

Telephone connectivity;

Computer networking between several computers to boost communication speed;

Medical research in fields such as surgery and dentistry;

Lighting and decorations when referring to illumination;

Mechanical inspections, making it easier to inspect remote areas;

Automotive industry by providing lighting and safety features;

Military and space applications where the data transmission is reliable and fast while upholding the security system.

Importance of Fibre Optic Cables


Fiber optic cables are similar to cable television and internet connections. There is much more to its uses, ranging from the basic home use to commercial use in offices and large institutions. There is no doubt that they have significant purposes in our everyday lives. Fibre optic cables aim to ease and make data transfers smoother and faster, providing a lasting and durable solution to connectivity, as well as offering a reliable and flexible solution.

Fibre Optics Installation Process

The installation will involve running the fibre cable from the fibre box on your boundary wall into your home. The installer will need to drill a small hole through your boundary wall where the fibre box is situated and feed the fibre cable through your home to a device in your house called the CPE (Customer Premises Equipment). The CPE device is a small in-home switch that allows you to connect the fibre cable to all your devices in the house.


Where do I order?

You can order online or you can call AdNotes Tech on 031 826 5593.


If you are renting, it will be advisable to get your landlords consent as the process will require drilling.


Do I need to present during the installation process?

If you’re unable to be present for your installation you can either re-schedule, or ask someone you trust who is over 18 years old to give access to your property. Remember that they’ll potentially need to make decisions about the installation for the technician and they will need to be present during the whole installation process.



It take 2-4 hours depending on the complexity.

The Usage of Biometric Systems

The practical use of biometric systems is growing rapidly based on the fact that personal identification is becoming more and more vital. Before we dive into where we can utilize them it is important to understand what biometric systems are. Biometrics is the science of analysing physical or behavioural characteristics specific to each individual in order to be able to authenticate their identity. Biometrics has quickly established itself as the most relevant means of identifying and authenticating individuals in a reliable and fast way, through the use of unique biological characteristics.


Biometric Systems are Used in these Top 5 Instances:

  1. Law Enforcement

Today, biometrics are widely used by law enforcement agencies across the world for the identification of criminals. Biometrics are also used for jail and prison management.


  1. Time and Attendance

A biometric time and attendance system is the automated method of recognizing an employee based on a biological characteristic. The most common biometric features used for employee identification are faces, fingerprints and voice patterns.


  1. Airport Security

Biometric technology to verify passenger identities has been used in several large international airports for a number of years and the technology is quickly spreading to other locations across the globe.


  1. Access Control & Single Sign On

Biometrics is used around the world for home access control, mobile phone access, vehicle access authentication and Single Sign On.


  1. Banking – Transaction Authentication

As global financial entities become more digitally-based, banks are implementing biometric technology to improve customer and employee identity management in an effort to combat fraud, increase transaction security, and enhance customer convenience.
