12 Advantages of Fiber Optics
Fiber optics is defined as the contained transmission of light through glass or plastic rods. Light passes along the length of the rods by a process called internal reflection. Since the core medium in the rod is more reflective than the material surrounding the core, the light is continually reflected back into the core, which causes the light to continue its journey down the fiber. Fiber optic cables have replaced virtually all traditional wiring for voice, image, and data transmission. As early as 1930, scientists were experimenting with light’s ability to travel the length of a bundle of glass rods. In the 1970s, the first voice signal was transmitted along a fiber optic strand. Replacement of most of the telephone network has followed these technological advancements. Long Beach Network Cabling can design an efficient fiber optic network to meet your communication needs.
Fiber optic cables have the following advantages over traditional metal wire strands:
- Lower costs – Fiber optic cable is less expensive to produce in very long continuous pieces that can span 12 km, or 7.2 miles. After the cables are installed, the cables are very durable which means that maintenance costs are substantially lower than standard copper wire. Intercontinental cables are made up of fiber optic strands since the extremely long distances can be traversed with must less expensive cable than the traditional metal wire. Telecommunications and internet communications have advanced rapidly to support world-wide communications on fiber optic networks.
- Smaller diameter – Physical dimension is important when enormous amounts of information must travel the distance of a cable. Copper wire is hundreds of times thicker than one fiber optic strand, which is thinner than a strand of human hair. In existing buildings fiber optic cables can be run through existing ducts without impacting air flow. As technology advances, even smaller strands are being made to carry comparable quantities of data.
- Higher bandwidth – One copper wire can carry 1.5 megabytes of information per second across a distance of 2.5 kilometers without requiring a signal repeater on the line. One strand of fiber optic cable can carry 2.5 gigabytes of information per second across 200 kilometers. The fiber carries 1,000 times more information for a distance 100 times as far as the copper cable network.
- Signal integrity – In applications where enormous quantities of information must be transmitted, fiber optic cabling has unmatched signal integrity. For example, in high-definition televisions the copper cables that carry the signal into the television must be shorter than 15 feet or signal degradation causes the picture to disintegrate. Fiber optic cabling carries light signals with perfect signal integrity to the display screen.
- Non-conductive – No matter how many fiber optic cabling strands are strung within a cable, the light signals that travel each strand do not cross into the paths of the signals in other strands. Since no electricity is present in the cable, fiber optic cables are useful where electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) would impact copper cable performance. Where cloud-to-ground lightning strikes occur frequently, fiber optic cabling performs perfectly since it does not attract lightning strikes. When fiber optic cables must run through walls with copper cabling, the performance is not affected in any way since light signals are sent down the strands without interruption.
- Minimal power consumption – Once the data signal is converted into light, the transmission speed and distance requires miniscule levels of power to reach the destination. Light travels miles along the fiber cabling strands without need for repeaters. Where data cabling spans across miles, the fiber optic network will carry enormous quantities of information without interruption using light generated at the origination point. When the signal is received, minimal power is required to convert the light back into usable forms of information.
- Digital signals – Conversion to digital transmission has been made easier with the use of existing fiber optic networks that have used the digital format since they were installed. Light signals follow digital patterns and eliminate the need for analog to digital conversion. Digital signals travel more quickly at the highest frequencies for rapid transmission of video and data information without signal degradation.
- Non-flammable – Fiber optic cabling will not catch fire because there is no electricity present in the optical fibers. In applications where sparks are strictly forbidden because of other highly combustible components, fiber optics is the perfect network cabling solution.
- Lightweight – Strands of fiber optic cable are one-eighth the weight of a copper cable of the same length. When data cabling must be run through ceiling ducts in an existing building, fiber optic cabling can support massive data transmission requirements with very light cables made up of multiple strands. Hanging ceilings can support data cables that will traverse a room to create a data network.
- Flexible – Fiber optic strands are able to transmit and receive light signals, so the use of fiber optic technology is useful with flexible digital cameras in multiple settings, including:
- Medical imaging – When medical scans are performed on a human body, every image is made up of gigabytes of information. Fiber optic cables are capable of transmitting high-resolution images from bronchoscopes, endoscopes, and laparoscopes, and then sending those images, without distortion, to the screen where a medical professional can view the image.
- Mechanical imaging – Microscopic images are taken of welds in pipes and engines to inspect the integrity of the mechanical weld. When car, airplane, rocket, or space shuttle safety depends on the image taken by the camera, only fiber optic cables will transmit the image perfectly. High-resolution images are made up of millions of bits of information that must be accepted, transmitted, and then reassembled without any loss of integrity.
Fiber optics applications are limited only by the devices at each end of the cable that must be able to communicate with each other. Large quantities of information travel the length of the fiber strands without signal degradation. Businesses throughout Long Beach have been using existing fiber optic networks for many years while simply replacing the devices at each end with the latest technology.
