What is Fiber Optic?
Fiber optic networks are made with hair-thin strands of optically pure glass that are bundled together in cables to reflect light particles off of each other. They are encoded with data from a digital source to carry information that can be decoded at the receiving end of the network. Fiber optics offer several advantages over more traditional cable networks including a higher carrying capacity, immunity to electromagnetic interference, and the ability to transmit unlimited amounts of information.
Fiber optic can boost wireless communication by bringing a network up to 800 GBPS connection. With this kind of speed, businesses and households would see a huge improvement in upload and download speeds, reduced latency, and better connections to support advanced computing.
They also support 5G — the fifth generation of wireless networks — which has more cell sites that are connected to fiber optic networks to operate faster and more efficiently than previous generations.
Advantages Over Older Copper & Coaxial Cable Networks
Fiber optic cables are being used more and more in the United States because they are superior to older copper and coaxial cable options. Fiber optic cables offer a higher bandwidth, longer transmission distance, smaller cross-sectional sizes, and greater immunity to electromagnetic interference. It is a matter of time before fiber optic completely replaces these older networks to better support 5G and the future of global connectivity and telecommunication.
Industries that Can Benefit from Fiber Optic Networks
Now is the perfect time for governments to update their network. The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) initiative will inject billions of dollars into the construction and operation of rural broadband networks for governments and municipalities.
Let’s take a look at a few others that would see a significant boost from fiber optic networks that support a faster network.
1) Hospitals and Healthcare Offices
The medical field continues to stay on the cutting edge of technology and relies on countless wireless connections for patient monitoring, communication with other healthcare providers, and remote surgical practices. A faster network can support VR training as well as advanced robotics for surgeries that minimize human error.
As automobile manufacturers inch closer to driverless cars with smart technology and wireless sensors and cameras that help drivers safely navigate their commute, 5G becomes necessary. Older 4G networks are not reliable enough to match these advances in transportation, especially within highly populated cities or busy roadways. Fiber optic networks will lay the groundwork for better travel in the future.
3) The Internet of Things
The Internet of Things supports wireless communication between home appliances, sound systems, phone chargers, televisions, and more devices. Many smart devices are expected to be on a wireless network by 2025, requiring a faster 5G network to support these in homes and businesses across the nation.
As people travel more and more for business and pleasure, hotels and hospitality industries have recognized an increased need for wireless interfaces and a strong network that continually attends to the needs of their guests. More and more hospitality services are becoming remotely accessible and more specialty resorts depend on wireless connections for televisions, appliances, and more.
These are just a few industries that would benefit from an updated network. The trust is that fiber optic networks are the future for every home, business, industry, and government in the future.
The Advantages of Fiber Optic Engineering for Your Business
Fiber has become the obvious choice for savvy business owners and industry leaders. Without switching over to these new networks, businesses risk being left behind. As fiber becomes more and more common and businesses invest in fiber cables, they will reap the following benefits:
1. Faster Internet
Fiber optic engineering leads to higher speeds for web browsing and interconnectivity. As businesses and households look for ways to enhance their productivity, the installation of fiber networks cannot be ignored. Fiber optic cables transmit data at about two thirds the speed of light and offer much less signal degradation during these quick transfers.
2. Greater Bandwidth
Fiber optic cables also provide more bandwidth. This allows more devices in a home or business to stream more information without sacrificing speed. Having better bandwidth offers a significant boost that is especially helpful for the following activities:
- Video conferencing
- Streaming gameplay
- File transfers
- SIP trunking
- Cloud-based computing
Security is becoming more and more important as cyber crime continues to rise. Copper cables can easily be tapped, but glass fibers provide additional security measures to prevent cyber crime. Security teams will quickly be alerted of any attempted tampering and physical instructions can be stopped before they start.
Fiber optic cables are robust and the lines will be much more reliable than copper-cored cable networks. They will also be unaffected by the weather changes and extreme temperatures that cause issues in older networks. This durability will save businesses time and money in the long run.
- Lower Ownership Costs
The initial installation of fiber optic networks may cost more than alternatives, but they will be more cost-effective in the long term. Fiber optics require less costly maintenance and repairs and offer greater productivity for various industries.
- Future-Proofed Network
As more and more businesses make the shift to cloud-based computing, a fiber optic network ensures the infrastructure to support this is already in place.
