As cabling systems become larger and the need to transmit data at ever increasing rates becomes greater, the case for fiber optic networks becomes more applicable. Whether it is used in the vertical backbone or to link buildings, fiber optic cabling offers a cost-effective solution. Whether the requirement is to match legacy multimode 62.5/125 links or implement new 10 Gigabit backbones we have a solution for you. Fiber is commonly used to connect long distance switches, offices and SLCs. Fiber optic can split a network into smaller service areas and offer a backup link through a redundancy. Local Area Network (LAN) backbone often need longer distance than copper cable (Cat 5/5e/6) can provide and evidently, fiber optic offers higher bandwidth for future-proof architecture expansion.
Most large corporate LANs use fiber backbones with copper wire to the desktop. Fiber to the desk can be cost effective if properly designed. CCTV is often on fiber for its distance capability. Industrial plants use fiber optic cables for distance and noise resistance. Utilities use it for network management, liking its immunity to noise also. The army uses it because it’s hard to tap or jam. Airplanes use it for that reason too, but also like the lighter weight of fiber. The characteristics, losses and bandwidth of fiber optic are critical to the success of your network, so our Network Specialists can guide you to the most appropriate choice. We can design, test and install a solution that will deliver the capability and flexibility you require for an ideal fiber-to-the-business (FTTB) network.
