Why we use fiber

  • It transmits data using hundreds of very thin strands of glass fiber bundled together to form a cable.
  • Data (video, audio, text, voice, etc.) is transmitted as pulses of light through the fiber.
  • A single strand of fibre is equivalent to 1,000 strands of traditional copper wiring. Compared to copper, it can accommodate A MILLION TIMES more data traffic. Fiber can carry data much further than copper and wireless systems.
