Innovations in Optical Fiber Technology
Optical fiber can provide numerous advantages over other transmission media, such as twisted-pair copper and wireless technology. For example, because space is always at a premium, high-density fiber-optic systems may be preferred for maximizing valuable square footage. Fiber’s small size and weight require less space in cabling pathways, raised floors and equipment racks.
Other advantages of optical fiber include:
- Greater bandwidth and error-free transmission over longer distances
- Simpler testing
- Immunity to EMI/RFI
