When choosing what type of network cable you want for your office, you want to make sure that your investment is sound. There are advantages and disadvantages to the various network infrastructure options, but many business owners find that fiber optic cables fit their needs the best. Let’s look at some of the advantages of fiber optic cable and discuss why it can be a great solution for your office.

One of the biggest benefits of fiber optic cabling is it’s speed. Both upload and download times with fiber optic cables are faster than with other types of cable. If you work in an industry where downloading and uploading are important to day to day operations, which includes many of you, fiber optic is the way to go.


Fiber optic cables have a host of benefits that don’t have to do with speed as well. The reliability of fiber optic cables is another big benefit. These cables are fast and consistent, as they experience less attenuation (signal loss) as information transfers from one destination to another.

In addition to reliability of speed and accuracy fiber optic cables are also more reliable than their competitors because they are more durable. Copper wires, for example, are more breakable than fiber optic cables. Having cables that aren’t easily broken can result in less downtime for your business, which can in turn increase productivity and profit for you.


And finally fiber optic cables are a safer option for your office space. Unlike other types of cables fiber optic cables do not conduct any heat and therefore pose less of a fire risk. Fiber optic cables also do not carry electrical currents through them so they do not risk catching on fire like copper cables do.

If your business relies on heavy online traffic and uploading and downloading speeds then it is no questions which type of cable is the better choice for you. Fiber optic cables offer a host of benefits that traditional copper cables do not, including reliability, speed, and safety features.
