Why Fiber Optic Cabling?
Fiber optics are a unique type of cabling that transmits information through light pulses rather than electrical pulses, as with copper. Because of the design of the cable and nature of light, it is ideal for quick communication and the transmission of a large amount of simultaneous data over long distances which is common in Fort McMurray and surrounding oil fields.
One of the main advantages of fiber optic cabling is that it has a capacity for bandwidth speeds of 10-40 gigabytes per second over longer distances than standard copper wiring. While multi-mode fibers are great for the insides of individual buildings, particularly in regards to backbone cabling to and from data centers, or for a few connected buildings, single-mode fibers are designed for the transmission of data over distances extending hundreds of kilometers, significantly further than copper wiring can transmit without additional equipment.
Additionally, fiber optic cabling is secure in more ways than one. It can protect the security of your company from interlopers better than copper wiring due to its resistance to wiretapping. It also is perfect for the safety and security of personnel in hazardous conditions due to its natural aversion to conducting electricity. Unlike copper wiring, it can be safely utilized in high voltage environments with no interference and can work in environments that may have explosive or flammable materials.
Fiber optic cabling is also the perfect way to save space in cable ducts due to its flexibility. This allows businesses to avoid having to make due with inordinately large offices with higher rent, reducing overhead as well.
