The Benefits of Fiber Optic

Why Fiber Optic Cable?

Learn more about why leading fiber optic installation companies have made copper the cable of the past

Versatility

Fiber optic cables differ from other types of cables by the way they use light to transmit data. Fiber optic cables are electrically neutral in nature which means that they do not carry electrical current and can be used with just about any device.

Speed

Because of its lower bandwidth, copper is best suited today for voice transmission. Fiber, on the other hand, routinely carries data at 10Gbps and well beyond and is the ideal choice for high-bandwidth internet usage, video streaming, and VoIP applications.

Clarity & Distance

Because fiber optic transmits communications over light instead of electricity, data is clearer and carries longer distances faster. With copper, boosters are often needed to transmit data over even smaller distances.

Security

Because fiber optic cable does not use electricity to transmit data, it is more secure and cannot be “tapped”— a common security breach with copper cable. Fiber optic cables are easily monitored and if an issue is found, it can be fixed before it becomes a major problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fiber optic cables are made up of two layers of glass, both of which transmit data signals over light. This technology allows for the transmission of data over long distances by using light instead of radio waves. Fiber optic is commonly used for high-speed communication and networking applications such as the Internet, telephone, and HD video.

Traditional copper cable will never compete with fiber optic. Because of its lower bandwidth, copper is best suited today for voice transmission. Fiber, on the other hand, routinely carries data at 10Gbps and well beyond and is the ideal choice for high-bandwidth internet usage, video streaming, and VoIP applications.

Fiber optic installation is the process of connecting cables to a building or structure. Our team is equipped for full-service, end-to-end installation.

Each installation starts by first understanding your data transmission and security needs. Our engineers study the surrounding area to design your installation and connection plan. We also obtain all necessary permits so there are no interruptions during the installation process.

Once your designs are finalized and approved, we begin to work on installing the fiber optic cable. This includes the necessary excavation, plowing, boring, needed to lay the fiber optic cable.

Once that is complete, the next step is splicing the fiber optic cable. Fiber optic splicing is a specialized skillset performed by highly trained professionals. It’s arguably the most important and sensitive process of fiber optic installation. This splicing process includes loose tube and ribbon splicing, power meter and OTDR testing, and fiber pathing services/route verification among other things.

Finally, we place the fiber and connect the fiber optic network. By having a dedicated team for fiber placement, Parker Communications is able to provide composite services to customers across large projects. We pride ourselves on meeting your deadline and completing the final stretch of the fiber optic cable installation project when it is needed most.

Fiber optic cables have been used in many different scenarios, including healthcare systems, telecommunications, educational institutions, and even high-performance vehicles. It’s the best option for an organization or business that needs fast network speeds that can accommodate high usage.
