Fiber Optic Installation
PCC Network Solutions offers high-performance, high-bandwidth single-mode and multi-mode optical fiber solutions. This allows for flexibility in design and enables your business to achieve the performance metrics that are right for your network application.
What are Fiber Optic Cables?
To put it simply, a fiber optic cable is a network cable that contains strands of glass fibers inside an insulated casing. Using pulses of light generated by small lasers or light-emitting diodes, fiber optic cables are specifically designed to handle high-performance data networking and telecommunications, as they are able to provide higher bandwidth and transmit data over longer distances. Today, fiber optic cables are used throughout the world to support high-speed internet, streaming video, and even high-performance telephone systems, to name just a few.
How Do Fiber Optic Cables Work?
A fiber optic cable consists of one or more very thin strands of glass. The center of each strand is called the core, which provides the pathway for light to travel. The core is surrounded by a layer of glass called cladding that reflects light inward to avoid loss of signal and allow the light to pass through bends in the cable.
The two primary types of optical fiber cables are single mode and multi-mode. Single-mode fiber uses extremely thin glass strands and a laser to generate light, while multi-mode optical fiber cables use LEDs.
Why Choose Fiber?
Fiber cables offer several advantages over long-distance copper cabling.
- Fiber optics support a higher capacity. The amount of network bandwidth a fiber cable can carry easily exceeds that of a copper cable with similar thickness.
- Light can travel for much longer distances over a fiber cable without losing its strength.
- A fiber optic cable is less susceptible to interference. A copper network cable requires shielding to protect it from electromagnetic interference. While this shielding helps, it is not sufficient to prevent interference when many cables are strung together in proximity to one another. The physical properties of fiber optic cables avoid most of these problems.
