The technology you choose for your company has a major impact on your day to day operations. To get the best possible performance, you should upgrade to fiber optics. Fiber optics provide the cleanest transmission of signals while only having to amplify every 60 miles before the signal is weakened. This translates to a wide variety of benefits, from consistently higher internet speeds to lower latency.
Why You Should Have Your Electrician Install Fiber Optic Cable
If your employees are waiting on slow internet, they’re losing time which could be spent on productive tasks. You need a connection that won’t slow even when your whole building is online—and fiber optics can do exactly that.
2. Signal Strength
A signal sent down a copper cable degrades over distance, every 100 meters or so. Fiber optics are much less affected by this deterioration and maintain signal strength much longer, roughly 60 miles. The larger your office, the more distinct the difference becomes.
Latency is the period of delay when processing data, especially large files, over an internet connection. Fiber optics have a lower latency period than copper, which is especially noticeable in real-time connections like a VoIP telephone system.
Fiber is resistant to electromagnetic damage, meaning that signal won’t be lost as easily during bad weather or when experiencing human interference. This means less downtime, which means smoother operations and higher profits. Optic wiring also has a higher tensile strength than its electrical counterpart.
