Dark Fibre network is an unused or unlit Point-to-Point connection, basically idle fibre optic cables with no service or traffic running on it, and has a high capacity or unlimited bandwidth, safety, and enable excellent signal strength and stability. A dark fiber contract requires the customer rather than the service provider to maintain and operate the equipment and use it for Internet access and communications. In the long term, leasing it from an internet service provider (ISP) or telecom carrier can be cheaper than purchasing commercial internet services and gives you almost complete control over their network infrastructure, and is safer than IP-VPN. Government institutions, schools, e-commerce, and retail companies can benefit from these network types.

In fiber-optic communications, fiber optic cables that are not yet put in service by a provider or carrier, are termed dark fiber or unlit fiber. Network communications and telecom usually use the network, and currently, there are lots of dark fiber cables across the globe. In regular fiber networks, information is sent through the cables in light pulses. Whereas dark fiber networks are known to be ‘dark’ as no light or data is transmitted from them.

Dark fiber networks can be installed and set up using point-to-multipoint or point-to-point configurations. Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) is an essential factor for the improvement and development of dark fiber networks. DWDM occurs when many data signals are transmitted using the same optical fiber at the same time. Although these signals are transmitted around the same time, they are transmitted at separate and unique wavelengths to keep these data signals separate. The significant benefits of DWDM include an increase in bandwidth of the optical fiber, high-quality internet performance, lightning-fast internet, and a secure and powerful network.

Dark fiber networks are not just used for business purposes but can be installed beneath land and oceans. Some of the interesting use cases of dark fiber include earthquake research and monitoring permafrost. Amongst many advantages, some of the disadvantages of the dark fiber network include high initial cost and loss of time in setting up your infrastructure, and high repairing and maintenance costs. Similarly, large dark fiber networks are currently available in metropolitan cities only and are yet to become available in small cities and towns.
