What is Fiber Optic Cabling?
A fiber optic cable transmits data through a bundle of hair-thin glass or plastic threads. Each thread modulates voice, video, or data into light waves for fast communication. Fiber optics offer several advantages over traditional metal cables:
- Greater bandwidth means fiber optic cables carry more data at once for faster upload and download speeds.
- Fiber optic cables are thinner and lighter than metal cables.
- Data transmits digitally rather than analogically, which is better suited for computer data.
The primary disadvantage of fiber optics is the higher expense compared to other cables. The glass threads are also more fragile and harder to splice than metal cables.
Despite these drawbacks, fiber optic cabling continues to grow in popularity due to its incredible speed and dependability. It’s especially useful for local-area networks (LAN), and telephone companies are rapidly replacing traditional phone lines with fiber optics. IT professionals agree – in the near future, virtually all communications will be transmitted through fiber optic cable.
Single Mode, Multi-Mode, and Laser Optimized Fiber Optic Cable
Which type of fiber optics will work best for you? It depends on your data transmission needs. First, understand that the center of each thread in a fiber optic cable – known as the core – is where data in the form of light waves travel from point to point.
Single mode fiber optic cable has a small-diameter core, which only permits one mode of light to travel through the cable at a time. Decreased reflections allow the signal to go further, meaning single model fiber optics is typically used in long-distance, high-bandwidth applications.
Multi-mode fiber optic cable has a core with a larger diameter, creating more light reflections and the ability to pass more data through the cable at one time. However, the signal quality degrades over long distances, so multi-mode fiber optics is best for short-distance, data-intensive applications.
Laser optimized fiber optics are the most advanced form available today. They provide higher power and faster data rates than light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
