IPT Fiber is establishing own capability for developing and supplying the new generation of specialty optical fibers with high efficiency. Designed and built with advanced optical fibers in mind, our new Center will be tasked to make specialty optical fibers widely available for all customers. With advanced optical fibers being vital for the introduction of new technology developments in telecommunications and industry, the demand for them is continuously increasing across the European and global markets.
Deriving directly from InPhoTech, a leading Polish photonic solution provider, IPT Fiber knows and understand this demand very well. We will support and supply an outbreak of several new technologies with a range of readily-available advanced optical fibers for next-generation transmission and sensing. With complete solutions in mind, IPT Fiber will provide the fiber optics components necessary to fully exploit the potential of our fibers.
The 5G mobile network will open new horizons for millions of people by providing real-time access to information and entertainment and offering interactive capability for online services on an unprecedented scale. In order to make this vision real, telecom operators around the world need to upgrade their existing radio access networks to meet the more dense cell pattern and very high throughput requirements. This, however, relies on higher optical fiber densification as it requires fibers to reach every cell site. Mass scale 5G implementation is currently a challenge, as it is costly, time-consuming and troublesome with existing technologies. Together with still not completely satisfied demand for the wider presence of Fiber-To-The-X (where X can be Home, Building, Premises, Curb, Cabinet, Radio-head, Antenna, etc.), this gap in infrastructure creates a global market need for a new fiber-optic solution offering very high bit transmission capacity that is cost effective and compatible with existing infrastructure. Our customers in this market are network operators, integrators, data centers, and solution vendors.
The value of the fiber optic sensing solutions market is expected to reach USD 1,7 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 19%. Optical fiber has some incredible advantages as a sensing element – it can take multiple measurements along its entire length; it’s easy to install even in the most restricted places; it’s free of electricity and immune to electro-magnetic fields. Thin fiber can be integrated with concrete, metal or composites for the structural health monitoring (SHM) of buildings or machinery. It can show the temperature distribution in oil wells, farming soil or permafrost. Fiber sensing supports Industry 4.0 transformation, including industrial IoT, as a single fiber can measure vital parameters along an entire production installation, providing the accurate data necessary for the automation and optimisation of processes. Fiber sensing greatly contributes to effective use of AI algorithms providing very large amount of data continuously acquired from installations and environment. For all these applications, an optical fiber serves as the key sensing element for an optical unit processing the light signal. Several types of such units are developed and supplied by our parent company, InPhoTech.
