What is Fiber Optic Cable?
Fiber Optic cable is a technology that uses small threads made of glass or plastic (fibers) to transmit data from one point to another. Fiber optic cabling is important to many of the everyday applications you use, such as the internet, telephone systems and cable television. Fiber optic cable is an excellent method for transmitting data and is preferable to standard copper coax cables.
Why choose fiber optic cable over alternative methods?
Fiber optic cable can transmit larger quantities of data with minimal loss and is able to maintain signals over long distances. Fiber Optic cabling provides the greatest information carrying capability of any medium. Many times when complex installation of computer networks require a span of 300 feet or more, fiber optic cabling is necessary. Fiber optic cable installation works in connecting network closets to Cat 5 networks. Other advantages are that fiber optic cable is less corrosive and is virtually free from interference.
As a data transmission medium, optical fiber has a number of advantages over copper cabling. Higher bandwidth, higher speeds, longer length limitations, security, stability, little or no maintenance costs, and now the installation costs are going down. If you have the option install fiber over copper, when in doubt, choose Fiber.
