Should I Use Fiber Optic Cabling for My Business?

Category: Structured Cabling
January 7, 2022

No matter what industry you’re in, all modern businesses need reliable internet access, and one of the best ways to ensure you have a reliable network is to install a fiber optic cabling infrastructure. At Lan Star Systems, Inc., we’ve built fiber optic cabling networks of all different sizes for businesses in many different industries. We took some time today to talk about why choosing fiber optic cabling is right for you.

Quick Internet Speeds

Fiber optic cabling technology is incredibly fast. Information travelling through fiber optic cables is travelling near the speed of light. Additionally, fiber optics also avoid the latency that usually occurs with traditional cabling.

Information Can Travel Greater Distances

Largely due to the speed at which they transmit data, fiber optic cable networks can transmit data at distances far greater than traditional cabling. This can be beneficial if you have a large campus or if you conduct a lot of work between different sites.

More Secure

Regular copper cabling transmits data using electrons, while fiber optic cabling uses photons. We’re not going to get down into the physics of it, but it is more difficult for hackers to intercept these photons, making fiber optic cabling networks more secure than their copper counterparts.

Easily Scalable

When you have a fiber optic cabling network installed by a professional Maryland structured cabling company, they should be able to advise you in terms of how you want your network to grow. If you plan on expanding or growing your business, you may have some future network needs that you don’t now. You can always upgrade your system later, and these future upgrades can be setup with that initial network installation.
