Fibre optic technology is something that we tend to take for granted today. It has been to modern society what the invention of pipes marked for the Romans – an efficient way to carry something essential to those that need it at high speed. It can transmit higher volumes of data than copper cables, over a longer distance, and has a much greater resistance to interference and security breaches. But how has this fascinating technology changed over time?
Awareness of fibre-optic technology is growing amongst consumers as one of the best new cabling solutions. It is one of the fastest expanding mediums for transmissions including horizontal, desktop and backbone applications, and this is due to a range of benefits that it offers over traditional copper cabling.
