In today’s quick spinning world, every person is looking forward to speed up their day-to-day processes. Steadily advancing technologies are aiming to make it possible to conduct huge actions with commands as simple as the mere touch of a button.
To pair up with the expectations and demands of the growing cyberworld, technicians have developed faster and faster connectivity options that will not only allow quicker access, but will allow the transmission of voice and data to reach newer heights.
This technology is called Pure Fiber Internet.
Fiber optic cable, on which the technology runs, is basically a thin glass wire that transmits light signals with the help of reflection and refraction. This means all the ‘signals’ stay IN the wire, with very few chances of loss or diffusion during the transit.
Being of immense use in the telecommunications sector, pure fiber has gained a competitive edge with cable wiring. Although both methods are resourceful when obtained from a reliable telecommunications provider, yet fiber optic has some unique aspects that are worth highlighting:
You know when they say ‘at the speed of light’? Well, this is exactly what fiber optic is: speedy transition, in the form of light signals, at the speed of light. Get it? It is speed that makes this option stand out among other traditional networks.
No matter how pure a copper cable is, its chemical composition always has some resistance that will eventually slow down or disperse the initial signal. With fiber, the transfer occurs with a simple and pure reflection of light, so what comes at the end is just as strong as what was sent, with minimal loss during the journey.
The low rate of loss in an optic fiber makes it the most reliable data transfer source. As a reference, a single optical fiber can carry 3,000,000 full-duplex voice calls, or 90,000 TV channels. In ordinary cabling, this much data would be hard to handle with issues such as latency and a data overload.
Fiber optic technology is comparatively safe. Not only is it difficult to tap, but it is obvious when someone does tamper with it. Once it is broken, or leaked, the light signal breaks off and gives a zero signal, so you will know immediately when this happens. Being lightweight and less bulky, the whole set up can snugly rest in a secure office than in remote wiring chambers.
Having no relation to electricity whatsoever, fiber optic cables don’t face interference from nearby cables. Also, they are immune to chemical corrosion, and can have no safety hazards like fires or shocks when humid.
Greater Distance Reached
With fiber, data can travel from 300 meters up to 40 kilometers, depending on the overall layout of the network. All without requiring a booster to amplify what the signal has lost on its way.
If these unique characteristics are not enough, pure fiber optic cables hold the following too:
- Are more durable and less susceptible to bends and kinks
- Are lightweight, flexible, and less spacious than heavily insulated cables
- Require less power consumption owing to the reduced loss of energy
- Are resistant to weather conditions and power outages
Since a business works best when based on a robust, reliable infrastructure, this technology has been gaining momentum in entrepreneurs who wish to take a step ahead of the crowd.
