Fibre Optic Cabling
IT products today, of any kind, are experiencing the “ageing process” faster than ever before. This is true from manufacturing to piloting, to the market, to it being an outdated piece of machinery. We can all relate to how quickly our ‘latest’ mobile phone is replaced with a new model.
Telecom infrastructures go from one generation to the next in a matter of months. CPU speeds have been doubling every 18 months keeping up with Moore’s Law and will continue to do so for at least the next four or five years. There are, however, some rock-solid technologies that exhibit a permanency that is hard to find in today’s breakneck speeds of scientific and technological development.
Fibre optic cables and infrastructure are considered as one of the best technology created by man, due to its significant durability. As such, it could be a factor that a company that might be interested to install and maintain fibre optic cables may be paying mega bucks. But in the long run, the return on investment for this kind of network will rise gradually due to its longevity.
So what makes fibre optic cable so resilient over time?
- Compared to other types of traditional cablings, the optical strands and protected casing are very sturdy. As a result, can endure decades of electricity charges if installed properly.
- Fibre optic cabling is the cable’s ability to withstand large data transmissions. So, if you need to accommodate faster connections in the future – don’t change the fibre optics but simply replace the equipment on the other end.
Essentially, fibre optic cabling future-proofs your infrastructure. A good example is how the ethernet has been increasing in speeds. It has increased from 100Mbps to 1Gbps, 40Gbps and 100Gbps over the same type of single-mode fibre optic cable.
Such a change is costly but it is still much cheaper than a complete cabling overhaul. Do remember that over the last 100 years, the conventional copper set up for cabled television and telecom networks has increased due to popular demand.
In comparison, fibre optic infrastructure can be a huge investment for your company. Still, the trend of fibre optic usage within buildings and cosmopolitan area networks as well as infrastructures has been gaining momentum globally. This is due to the commercial sectors gradually realizing that their return of investment in this cabling has longterm benefit.
