Our fiber optic equipment is engineered to use different colors of light to carry multiple signals on the same fiber. With fiber optics we can process a tumultuous amount of signals on a single fiber providing the end user a simple and convenient solution to transport their audio/video signal. Up to 60 different colored lasers are available with each laser carrying up to a 10 Gigabit signal. This technique is known as wavelength division multiplexing. When used with a larger number of light colors it is known as either Course or Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM, CWDM, or DWDM). Using WDM, CWDM and DWDM multiplexing techniques we provide our fiber optic solutions to:
• Cable TV Industry
• TV Stations ,Radio Stations, Private television
• Security Providers
• Satellite Companies
• Stelite Teleports
• Traffic monitoring and other logistic companies
• Educational institutions (schools, colleges, universities, laboratories)

Fiber Custom Solutions
Think for second, way back when in the new world of Windows 95 and the introduction of the infamous 56K modem. This shining example of new wave technology and where the world was soon to be traversing through became the newest tech fix everyone wanted to have in their homes. Alas, its relevance was based on the concept of transmitting massive amounts of information over fiber networks in the mid 1990’s. The initial fiber boom in America began in the 80’s as the tech infrastructure of our modern society began to boom. First dial up 56K, then DSL began trendy, soon after cable modems, later Ethernet T1’s; entire networks of impossible dreams ascended through our culture of modernity faster than the consumer could relate.
At its inception, fiber relayed at 90 Mpbs which loosely meant transmitting 1300 phone conversations simultaneously. Today our optical systems run through a single fiber and can transmit at 10g/s or approximately 130,000 voice conversations. With the newest fiber technology in amplifiers and multiplexers, fibers have been tested to transmit at about 1 terabyte a second. In the new ‘we want it, and we want it now’ world we live in, means more information, more megabytes, more video/audio is being transmitted than dreamers thought possible just a short while ago. To think in about 10-15 year’s time we went from 56K to a terabyte is borderline cynical.
The Darwinian Fiber Trend:
Everyone and everything uses fiber these days to send and receive life’s technological perks. From news television, satellite signals, cable and radio, there is a fiber product to get a signal (of any variety) to its destination, faster and sharper than ever before. If you peruse a fiber site you’ll be inundated with limitless possibilities to help your network do what it needs to do with a simple glass (silica) fiber no wider than a human hair. While companies like Thor Broadcast continue to produce top of the line products for the most commonly sought after manufactured fiber products, Thor will continue to exceed customer anticipation by rationalizing their needs today. In modest terms, the use of fiber is utterly endless. Today’s use of fiber is driven by the needs of massive telecom abusing population of earth. Between your telephone, news on your television, watching Youtube on your wireless mobile device, every real time transaction of digital media can all be translated back to thin hair-like fibers.
Thor Fiber is dedicated to the continuously evolving new wave of ideas and technology needs of every consumer of data. Our engineers tirelessly continue to test new ways to solve everyday problems. By using single and multimode fibers there is a solution to every signal transmission problem you can think of. In most cases it’s hard to find those problems until they end up on our desks. So think to yourself for a second, if you have a necessity to transmit an HDASI to ASI and think that purchasing an out of the box robotically manufactured system is your best solution? Clearly there is a chance it might produce, but more often than not there is better answer. The point is, this technology is changing at a pace that absolutely can Not be controlled in any systemic way. Our engineers hand craft systems to continuously anticipate and foresee potential advantages and disadvantages in our systems. There is a constant conscious effort to produce the best quality cards, adapters, transmitters, and other various fiber products on the market to ensure their durability and life.
A World of Blind Light:
Putting your tax dollars to work always seems to be a cliché among everyone’s concerns when it comes to having to payout those fees every paycheck. Infrastructure is among the most neglected tax schemes this country has grown to love and hate. General public opinion has a false notion of infrastructure that generally refers to roads and bridges. But this isn’t the 1950’s anymore, we aren’t enveloped in suburbanization and constructing a highway system on a national scale. Today we are thriving in a highly scientific and techno-charged nation this is dependent on millions of miles of cables, electricity, and satellites. Before you start thinking, hey those are third parties like Verizon and Time Warner paying for all that stuff, do yourself a favor and investigate. Heed the fact that almost every relevant piece of technology produced in the last several decades has stemmed from a government/military tech R&D firm. For example Verizon’s Telecom introduced a 4G mobile service, those 4G towers were purchased from the military; as I mentioned, the public usually gets to indulge into military technology once the military deems it out of date, per se.
For our purposes let’s talk about how sophisticated modern cities have become. Mass transportation, stoplights, drawbridges, emergency broadcast system, running water, air land and sea traffic is all monitored by highly sophisticated machines that run on a lateral spectrum of human innovation. All these systems in some part interact with each other and must be powered congruously without fail and at the speed of light. This light is fiber. Its real and it’s everywhere. City blocks, skyscrapers, business sectors and even residential neighborhoods have been infused with fiber since the 1980’s. Buried deep in cables you’ll find casing with singlemode, multimode, amplifiers, transmitters, relays, and adapters millions of miles long stretching to just about every corner of our country. Anybody and anything can use fiber to better themselves in a way no one thought was possible a couple decades ago. Now those realities have become self-evident at speeds that would make red bull stunt junkies heads explode.
Today I readily enjoy banking from the beach, emailing from chairlifts while on the slopes, downloading music right to my phone, sending pictures of myself to all my contacts from my phone as soon as I take them. Our cars are smarter, I have on-demand television, and I can participate in streaming stock quotes as they happen in NYC from anywhere in the world. This is all good fun from a consumer standpoint, but how on earth does it all work? FIBER OPTICS. Healthcare systems have integrated into one stop shops for all medical needs between doctors stretched across entire cities, because they are all networked through fiber. Airports know exactly what’s going on at every other airport in the world because of fiber. You can watch live events anywhere in the world as they happen in real time without a lag because of the updated audio video transport systems that fiber has been able to transmit through. Though this has been mostly ad infinitum jargon, it’s time to take a look at how real people, small businesses, and global empires all benefit from our systems.
Face it, everything you love to do and everything you take for granted can be attributed to fiber.
Show Me the Light
As I mentioned before technology is growing at a pace that’s hard to keep up with. Everyone wants the newest craze in tech gadgets like ipad’s, phones, and internet television, rightfully so, but as you can tell Apple puts out a new model of its products annually just before the holiday season. We can say similar things about the tech infrastructure that powers these mobile devices. Perhaps on a different plane of sorts, but constant innovation, testing, and manufacturing is a must to keep up with the Jones’s. This is the heartbeat of ThorFiber. Dedicated personnel constantly manufacture and engineer new products to introduce some of the best hand crafted American made fiber systems in the world.
The ‘shining star’ at the moment seems to be audio video over fiber. From here we have sold systems around the world to governments, television networks, fortune 500 companies, city planning development groups, banks, chain restaurants, insurance groups, hospitals, all having a necessity to transmit their audio video feeds to a variety of locations all at the same time without delay and distortion.
