Fiber Optics will change the way you connect
The speed of your business is not slowing down. Many companies are switching to fiber optic networking for its ability to transmit large amounts of data with greater speed and fidelity over longer distances. Sounds great? It is!
The two primary types of optical fiber cables are single mode and multi-mode. Single-mode fiber uses extremely thin glass strands and a laser to generate light, while multi-mode optical fiber cables use LEDs.
Single-mode optical fiber networks often use Wave Division Multiplexing techniques to increase the amount of data traffic that the strand can carry. WDM allows light at multiple different wavelengths to be combined (multiplexed) and later separated (de-multiplexed), effectively transmitting multiple communication streams through a single light pulse.

Benefits of Fiber Optics
The sizeable capacity of fiber optics allow for carrying high-speed signals over longer distances.
By utilizing a core that carries light to transmit data, fiber optic cables transmit signals
at a speed that is only about 31% slower than the speed of light.
Security and Reliability
Fiber is resistant to severe weather, temperature changes, so moisture and does not present
a fire hazard. Fiber is also distinguished for security attributes, as it is less susceptible to
traditional forms security breaches.
With increased productivity and eliminated speed issues, companies that use fiber optics
often see significant cost savings over time.
Delays from processing high amounts of data are decreased with fiber-optic cabling. This leads
to better voice quality for VoIP users, improved synchronicity between employees and improved downloading and uploading of large files.
