The American Optoelectronics Corp fiber optic chart, which shows how much power an antenna will receive at different frequencies, has been updated to include the use of fiber optic sprays to deliver power to an antenna.
The company said on Wednesday it was launching a new line of fiber optics sprays in an effort to address the power requirements of the fiber optic networking industry.
The sprays are priced at $10 per 1 kilowatt-hour for home use, or $10 for small homes or offices, and can deliver power from a single fiber optic cable to an average of about 4.5 kilowatts.

The Sprays are designed to meet the power needs of the next generation of fiber-optic networks, including a $3.6 trillion fiber-coax network to connect homes and businesses, and a $2.5 trillion fiber optic backbone to power the Internet.
The company has previously said it would be looking for ways to increase the range of its fiber optic network.
It has been selling fiber optics for decades and has developed products including fiber optics cables, fiber optics and fiber optics power equipment, as well as products such as fiber optics spray, which is used to spray paint and water paint.
“The new Sprays will provide a more efficient, efficient way to deliver high-performance fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband Internet service to small, urban and rural households in the United States,” the company said in a statement.
Last month, the Federal Communications Commission ruled that fiber optics must be “broadband capable” in order to be available in the future.
