Fiber optic cables in Dubai are very popular among residences and offices for both new cabling installations and upgrades, including backbone, horizontal, and even desktop applications.
Our experts prefer to use fiber optic cable for a number of reasons as opposed to copper cables. Here are some of the reasons why we swear by using fiber optic cables over copper.
Superior bandwidth – Fiber optic cables provides more bandwidth than copper and has standardized performance up to 10Gbps and perhaps even higher, depending on your service provider. The availability of more bandwidth means that fiber optic cables can carry more information with greater fidelity as opposed to copper wires. So if your requirement is to have higher bandwidth than fiber optic cables are the best option.
Speed and distance – Most of our customers prefer fiber optic cables because they are made of light, very little signal loss during transmission, and data can move at higher speeds and greater distances. It’s the best cable solution for your office or home automation system. The distance the fiber optic cable will vary and will depend on the style of cable, wavelength and network you use.
Safety and Security – We will guarantee that these cables are safe as opposed to copper and your data is secure, so you have nothing to worry. It doesn’t radiate signals and is extremely difficult to tap. If the cable is tapped into, then it’s very easy to detect because the cable leaks light, causing the entire system to fail. If an attempt is made to break the physical security of your fiber optic cable network then you will know it.
We also provide solutions through the fiber optic cable system where all your electronics and hardware is in one central location, instead of having wiring closets with equipment throughout the premises.
Reliable and durable – What more can we say, fiber optic cables provide a reliable solution for your data transmission. It’s totally immune to many environmental factors that affect copper cables and are extremely durable. The core of the fiber optic cable is made of glass, which is an insulator, so no electric current can flow through. It’s immune to electrometric interference and radio-frequency interference, crosstalk, impedance problems, and other interferences. We can easily install fiber optic cables next to industrial equipment easily and you have nothing to worry about. Fiber optic cables are also less susceptible to temperature fluctuations than copper and can be submerged in water.
Design – As opposed to copper, fiber optic cables are lightweight. With copper cables, if you want higher bandwidth than you have to use a higher grade of cable, which is typically larger and more bulky and heavy and take up more space in cable trays. On the other hand, with fiber optic cables, the weight and diameter is far less. The petite size of the fiber optic cables makes it easier to handle, and it takes up much less space in cabling ducts, while fiber optic cables are easier to test than copper cable.
Cost – One question we are asked is if fiber optic cabling is expensive? With the decrease in fiber cable, components, and hardware, the cost too has steadily decreased and is very affordable. However, fiber optic cabling is more expensive than copper cables in the short run, but is definitely more expensive in the long run. Fiber optic cables cost less to maintain, has less downtime, requires less networking hardware and can be easily replaced.
So if you are thinking about the best cabling option for your office or home-office, then talk to our experts about the best type of cable to use so that its long lasting, provides a superior performance and is cost effective.
