Why Choose Fiber Optic Cabling For Your Business?

Fiber Optics


As your business grows you need to transmit more data and your cabling systems will need to expand to meet that demand. This is when fiber optic cabling becomes the ideal solution. Fiber optic cabling offers increased security and safety, faster bandwidth over longer distances and more reliable data transmissions. And even though fiber optic cabling is made of glass, the alternative (copper wire) is far more prone to damage, so you’ll be proofing your cabling for the future, as well as ensuring a solid infrastructure for today. The technicians at Technology Solutions Unlimited, Inc. are expertly trained, knowledgeable, and highly qualified to install fiber optic cabling in your business.

Fiber optic cable has become an affordable solution for companies needing to extend their communications over long distances. Not only will you save money over copper cable, but they’re also easier to install and take up less space. Any organization can benefit from fiber optic cabling including government, corporations and schools. There is no company better suited to help you than TSU-Inc. Whether you have a business, work for the government or you work in education, fiber optic cabling is an important part of your network. Fiber Optic Cabling is much better than copper wiring and will make everything run smoother, faster and more cost efficiently. As prices of fiber optic cables have never been cheaper, now is the perfect time to upgrade your network.

  • The cost of transmitting a single phone conversation over fiber optics is only about 1% the cost of transmitting it over copper wire! That’s why fiber is the exclusive medium for long distance communications.
  • The biggest advantage of optical fiber is the fact it can transport more information longer distances in less time than any other communications medium.
  • Fiber offers you the freedom to meet all of your future telecommunications needs.
  • Fiber optics is affordable today, as electronics prices fall and optical cable pricing remains low. In many cases, fiber solutions are less costly than copper. As bandwidth demands increase rapidly with technological advances, fiber will continue to play a vital role in the long-term success of telecommunications.

Advantages of Fiber Optic Cabling:

Long Distance Signal Transmission:

The low attenuation and superior signal integrity found in fiber optics cabling systems allow much longer intervals of signal transmission than metallic-based systems. While single-line, voice-grade copper systems longer than a couple of kilometers (1.2 miles) require in-line signal repeaters for satisfactory performance, it is not unusual for optical systems to go over 100 kilometers (km), or about 62 miles, with no active or passive processing. Emerging technologies promise even greater distances in the future.

Large, Light Weight, and Small Diameter:

While today’s applications require an ever-increasing amount of bandwidth, it is important to consider the space constraints of many end-users. It is commonplace to install new cabling within existing duct systems. The relatively small diameter and light weight of optical cables makes such installations easy and practical, and saves valuable conduit space in these environments.

Long Lengths:

Long, continuous lengths also provide advantages for installers and end-users. Small diameters make it practical to manufacture and install much longer lengths than for metallic cables: twelve-kilometer (12 km) continuous optical cable lengths are common.

Multimode cable lengths can be 4 km or more, although most standards require a maximum length of 2 km or less.

Easy Installation and Upgrades:

Long lengths make fiber optical cable installation much easier and less expensive. Optical fiber cables can be installed with the same equipment that is used to install copper and coaxial cables, with some modifications due to the small size and limited pull tension and bend radius of optical cables.

Optical cables can typically be installed in duct systems in spans of 6000 meters or more depending on the duct’s condition, layout of the duct system, and installation technique. The longer cables can be coiled at an intermediate point and pulled farther into the duct system as necessary.

System designers typically plan optical systems that will meet growth needs for a 15- to 20-year span. Although sometimes difficult to predict, growth can be accommodated by installing spare fibers for future requirements. Installation of spare fibers today is more economical than installing additional cables later. The dielectric nature of optical fiber can eliminate the dangers found in areas of high lightning-strike incidence.


Another advantage of optical fibers is their dielectric nature. Since optical fiber has no metallic components, it can be installed in areas with electromagnetic interference (EMI), including radio frequency interference (RFI). Areas with high EMI include utility lines, power-carrying lines, and railroad tracks. Another advantage of optical fibers is their All-Dielectric Cables are also ideal for areas of high lightning-strike incidence.


Unlike metallic-based systems, the dielectric nature of optical fiber cabling makes it impossible to remotely detect the signal being transmitted within the cable. The only way to do so is by actually accessing the optical fiber itself. Accessing the fiber requires intervention that is easily detectable by security surveillance. These circumstances make fiber extremely attractive to governmental bodies, banks, and others with major security concerns.
