Switch to Fiber Optic Technology


#1

Fiber optic lines are resistant to kinks and are not impacted by electromagnetic interference because the data is transmitted via light instead of current fiber optic cable. In addition, fiber optic lines can provide high-bandwidth data transmission across exponentially longer distances without requiring expensive hardware to amplify and filter the signal at regular intervals. To maintain high-bandwidth transmission of data over a significant distance (more than a quarter of a mile), copper / DSL / coaxial infrastructure requires repeaters, amplifier and switches at regular intervals. This hardware needs to be updated with each new iteration of DSL technology, necessitating expensive hardware solutions and increased installation costs.
