What is fiber?
A fiber optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads. Each of fiber is capable of transmitting messages modulated into light waves. Fiber optic technology sends data without electricity through a conductor. Instead of electrical signals, modulated light is used to quickly transmit data over great distances through an insulated glass Fiber-type material.
Fiber optics is currently the best long distance communications method because it provides much faster data transfer speeds when compared to traditional interconnection media such as copper wire. The signal cannot be disrupted by outside sources like electricity, rain, humidity, or other environmental disturbance that tend to damage conventional copper wire signals. Fiber Optic Cables are ideal for volatile environments because fiber optic cables are more durable, and maintenance is inexpensive than traditional copper wires.
