A Futureproof Fiber Optic Network
Fiber Optics are long, thin strands of very pure glass about the diameter of a human hair. They are arranged in bundles called fiber optic cables and use light instead of electricity to carry a signal. The light signals represent data, which is capable of traveling at the speed of light.
Fiber technology can carry massive amounts of information, called bandwidth, over long distances without degradation. Fiber has a higher bandwidth capacity and can easily transmit traditional applications such as voice, internet, and video with plenty of capacity left over for other advanced applications in the future. Once installed, fiber is usually upgraded by changing the electronics that creates the light pulses, and not by replacing the cable itself. That’s why fiber networks are said to be “futureproof”.
