Why Fiber Cables Are Here to Stay

The advent of fiber optical cables has rendered metallic wires completely redundant. Also known as FOCs, these plastic or glass fiber cables transmit communications over long distances at high speed without any loss of data. Their complete immunity to electromagnetic interference makes them quite incomparable. Their such incredible qualities not only makes them secure and more reliable when compared to traditional copper wires but also quite handy when cable is meant for high voltage environments.
The assembly of a fiber cable consists of a tube with a front and rear surface, a track and fasteners besides regular fiber bundles. The functions of fiber optic cables include transferring data, voice, photos, cable TV, and video. Since the data is transferred in the form of light, fiber cables are useful for both long distance and short distance for audio/video signal transportation. When damaged due to any reason, cable between the two connectors has to be replaced as soldering or twisting wires won’t work.
Out of the numerous applications of fiber optic technologies telecommunications, CCTV security places, and local area networks are just a few important ones. Fiber cable consists of a core made of glass silica through which the light is guided. The core is wrapped in a material whose refractive index is slightly lower than that of the core. To connect two optical fibers, the process of mechanical splicing or fusion splicing is used. Since it requires microscopic precision to align them properly, only highly skilled technicians and latest machinery is used.
Whether it’s CCTV or local area network, the unique features and capabilities of Fiber cable make it extremely appropriate for communication sector. It would not be incorrect to say that metal wiring is a thing of passé and fiber optic cables are here to stay.
