Fibre Optic Cable Installation is beginning to be embraced across businesses and schools across the country. The power and the flexibility of fibre optic cabling lends itself to meet the needs of many workplaces and schools.

While the technology behind fibre optic cable installations is not exactly new, the application of it into the workplace and as a method of transmitting data and providing connectivity to some education institutions still is reasonably new.  Owing to the variety of benefits that fibre optic cable installations offer, it is quickly becoming the fastest, smartest and most flexible way to transmit large amounts of data. 

Because fibre optic cabling technology offers such impressive benefits we thought it might be useful to uncover some of the top fibre optic cable installation facts that businesses and schools may not be aware of.


Below are a few interesting fibre optic cabling installation facts to help you understand the benefits:

1. Fibre Optics Are Not New

Fibre Optic Technology has been used since the 1870’s so it has a long history of use.

2. Fibre Optic Technology Does Not Use Electrical Currents To Transmit Data

There is no electrical current passed through fibre optic cables, it uses light which means that there is no heat produced. Because there is no heat, it reduces the risk of burning and fire hazard.  If used for normal use, fibre optic cabling is the safest method for transmitting data.

3. Fibre Optic Cabling Is More Efficient

Signals transmitted via fibre optic cabling do not degrade as quickly as signals that are sent via copper wiring. Electricity transmitting through any medium will be inclined to degrade to a degree and the greater the distance it has to travel, the poorer the signal that transmits.

4. Fibre Optic Cabling Is Very Fast

Fibre Optic Cabling and the transmission of data can be done faster than any traditional cabling because it allows an increased capacity of data to be transmitted. 

5. Uses for Fibre Optic Cabling Installation

There are many uses for fibre optic cabling with the traditional use being for data transmission, but fibre optic cabling uses have increased in their use and are now used for a multitude of purposes with the main uses being imaging, spectroscopy, supply of power, signs, art and even artificial Christmas trees and lights.

6. Fibre Optic Cabling Does Not Interfere with Each Other

Because fibre optics do not interfere with one another, fibre optic cabling is a sensible medium for use in exchanging digital data.

7. Fibre Optic Cabling is Cheap

Fibre Optic Cabling uses less power because it needs less energy to send a flash of light than traditional electrical signal methods, this results in cheaper costs to transmit data.

8. Fibre Optic Cable Installation Is Environmentally friendly

Because fibre optic cabling uses less power, it produces less emissions into the environment.

9. Fibre Optic Cabling Is Small and Lightweight

Fibre Optic cabling is smaller and more lightweight than traditional cabling. From a data cabling installation point of view, fibre optical cabling is easier to work with and to transport from job to job. Because the transportation costs are easier and it is easier to install this also reduces installation costs which ultimately makes it cheaper for the customer.

10. Fibre Optic Cabling Is Not Impacted By Weather Conditions

As highlighted above, fibre optic cables carry light instead of electricity and therefore are not impacted by changes in weather conditions and resulting heat, rain, cold, or other environmental factors.
