Fiber Optic Technology
Fiber optic cable is one of the fastest-growing transmission mediums for both new cabling installations and upgrades, including backbone, horizontal, and even desktop applications. It works very well in applications that need high bandwidth, long distances, and complete immunity to electrical interference. That makes it ideal for high-data-rate systems such as Gigabit Ethernet, multimedia, and Fibre Channel, or any other network that requires the transfer of large, bandwidth-consuming data files, particularly over long distances.
