What are the advantages of fiber optic cables?

  • Fiber cables are smaller and much lighter than metallic cables. The thickness of the optical fiber does not exceed the thickness of a strand, no matter how thick it is covered with a protective agent; it does not exceed the thickness of the copper cable.
  • It provides a wide bandwidth and carrying capacity thanks to the data volume transmitted by the fiber optic cables per unit time.
  • There is almost no signal loss in fiber optic cables.
  • Since the light can travel longer distances to the fiber cable without losing power, it reduces the need for signal booster.
  • Temperature changes, severe weather and humidity, floods etc. it is highly resistant to environmental factors.
  • Since optical fibers use light and reflection of light in transmission, data can be transmitted to much longer distances.
  • Since the fiber optic cable does not carry electrical current, it is not exposed to electrical effects and there is no interference, a clean signal transmission is provided.
  • Since fiber optic cable uses light in transmission, electromagnetic energy does not leak from the cable and this provides absolute information security.
  • With fiber optic systems, information is provided in the most efficient, economic and shortest time.
  • The only disadvantage of fiber systems is the high initial cost, but it is understood that it is more economical than copper systems, considering the durability, speed and reliability of fiber systems in the long run.
