Fiber optics, or optical fibers, are long, thin strands of carefully drawn glass about the diameter of a human hair. These strands are arranged in bundles called optical cables. We rely on them to transmit light signals over long distances.
At the transmitting source, the light signals are encoded with data… the same data you see on the screen of a computer. So, the optical fiber transmits “data” by light to a receiving end, where the light signal is decoded as data. Therefore, fiber optics is actually a transmission medium – a “pipe” to carry signals over long distances at very high speeds.AE Connect offers high quality fiber cables whch are both effective and efficient.
1. Very high bandwidth levels are supported by fiber
hen it comes to bandwidth, no currently available technology is better than fiber especially singlemode fiber. Fiber optic cables provide more bandwidth to carry more data than copper cables of the same diameter.
2. Fiber is Secure
Fiber cables don’t emit signals; connecting taps to a fiber cable to intercept data transmission is incredibly difficult.
Because the signal traveling through a fiber cable is contained inside the individual fiber strand, it must be accessed from the end of the cable by cutting into it.
3. Fiber is Immune to EMI
Placing lots of electronic cables (which carry electric current) in a dense environment can create crosstalk between cables – which causes performance issues and data-transmission interruption. Fiber cables, however, don’t produce electromagnetic interference (EMI).
