An optical fiber or fiber optic cable is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass, which are used most often as a means to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber and find wide usage in fiber-optic communications, where they permit transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data rates) than wire cables. Fiber optic cables have a much greater bandwidth than metal cables.
The amount of information that can be transmitted per unit time of fiber over other transmission media is its most significant advantage. An optical fiber offers low power loss, which allows for longer transmission distances. In comparison to copper, in a network, the longest recommended copper distance is 100m while with fiber, it is 2km. Fiber optic cables are immune to electromagnetic interference. It can also be run in electrically noisy environments without concern as electrical noise will not affect fiber. Optical fibers are difficult to tap. As they do not radiate electromagnetic energy, emissions cannot be intercepted.
As physically tapping the fiber takes great skill to do undetected, fiber is the most secure medium available for carrying sensitive data. We offer A-Z solutions in OFC networking ensuring smooth connectivity thereby increasing productivity of an institution.
