Fibre optics Systems are important telecommunication infrastructure for worldwide band broadband networks .Optical Fibre increases the speed of data transfer .The transmission through its high bandwidth can easily transmitted from transmitter to receiver with minimal losses. This paper deals with communication using optical fibres .Factors on which optical communication depends. The recent development in the field of optical fibre communication as well advances in the different fibre types & their properties, optical sources, detectors compatible with fibres. The current trends towards next generation.
