Fiber Fast, reliable networking, data access and cyber communication is a paramount facet to any business. Cabling is the highway by which every data module is transmitted through out your IT network. Traditional cabling consists of copper wiring, however recent advancements have produced fiber optic options. In contrast to metal wiring, fiber optics consists of glass or plastic fibers which transmit messages modulated onto light waves known as photons. These pulse through the fiber optic cable, which is comprised of a glass fiber core protected by cladding. As light is refracted in a zig-zag pattern through the cable, it produces total internal reflection. This process is approximately 30% slower than the speed of light. Sometimes, to boost or renew the signal, repeaters must be used within the fiber optics which convert the signal to an electrical signal, later retransmitting it back to an optical signal. There are two primary types of fiber optic cable: Single mode fiber, which contains a smaller diameter and is ideal for long distances without reduction, and multimode fiber, which is used for shorter distances due to its larger diameter. The advantages of fiber optics wiring include:
