How does a submarine optical fiber cable network boost digital infrastructure?

Optical fiber has enabled the micro-businesses in Andaman & Nicobar Islands to use QR codes efficiently, thereby increasing business opportunities. 



The digital infrastructure of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands has received an immense boost because of the CANI submarine optical fiber network. The submarine optical fiber network has been launched in collaboration with NEC India to support connectivity on the remote islands, and it has accomplished the task quite gracefully. 


Businesses can enjoy several benefits when seamlessly combining fiber optics with barcodes and QR codes. The optic network has enabled the merchants on the islands to deal directly through QR codes, facilitating trade and micro-businesses. 


Fiber optic cables transmit data at the speed of light, allowing for real-time scanning and processing of barcodes and QR codes. It reduces latency, ensuring the scanning operations are virtually instantaneous and minimizing delays in data processing. 


The industrial processes on the islands have also received an immense boost owing to the CANI cable network. Repeaters have been placed in the cable network to prevent the natural attenuation of light in optical fibers. They detect and amplify the weakening signals, ensuring that the signals remain strong and clear.

The adoption of ICT services has grown manifold on the islands, with physical location becoming irrelevant. The residents are now able to access services like online education and telemedicine. 

The banking services on the islands have improved after the launch of the optical cable network. Bank customers do not have to visit the banks physically to do their KYC. 

Businesses need not open offices on the mainland to cater to their customers. This has given a significant boost to the local tour operators. They can now offer better services to the tourists. Operating wi-fi from the comfort of the hotel rooms has become a reality after the launch of the CANI cable network.
