The Need For Speed
When comparing the speed of copper cables to fiber optic cables, the latter takes the lead. In fact, fiber optic cables almost travel at the speed of light! This is due to the fact that fiber optic cables utilize photons and copper cables have electrons. If you want a fast internet speed, opt for fiber optic cables.
If copper wires are installed incorrectly, it can result in electromagnetic currents. Unfortunately, this can make a network go haywire. Fiber optic cables do not have this problem because they do not conduct electricity. A system of fiber optic cables can experience less interference and down time than a system of copper wires.
Built To LastCopper wires have been known to break easily. Luckily, fiber optic cables are more durable and resistant than copper wires are. This is beneficial because they will need to be replaced less frequently. For many business owners, fiber optic cables are the more cost-effective alternative.
Fiber optics are the future of cabling and every business should look to replace their current copper wires with it. When you need your current cabling replaced and restructured, contact Reliable Voice & Data Systems. To learn more, or to schedule a free estimate, give us a call at (877) 385-6657.
