Fiber optic cable advantages

A fiber optic cable is a flexible and transparent fiber made by drawing plastic or glass to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. Optical fiber cable is generally used most often as a means to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber and also find wide usage in the fiber optic communication system. So now let use check about the advantages and of fiber optical cable to know more details about fiber optic cable.

Advantages of fiber optic cable :

  • Fiber optic cable has a much greater bandwidth than metal cables
  • Optical fiber capability has a bandwidth capability of 400 MHz/km or greater
  • Longer lasting
  • Thinner 
  • Faster speed
  • Less signal degradation
  • Light signal
  • Long lifespan
  • Extremely high bandwidth
  • Crosstalk immunity
  • High carrying capacity
  • Reduced size and weight cable
  • An optical fiber can provide data transmission performance up to 10 Gbps
  • Resistance to corrosion and temperature variations.
  • High resistance ever-dropping
  • Immunity to electrical noise
  • Greater cable distance without a repeater
  • An industry standard for high-speed networking
  • Low power losses
  • an optical fiber is generally made of silica band, raw materials abundant compared with copper
  • Low-security risk
  • Less expensive than copper cable
