Fiber optics use pulses of light to send information through strands of fiber, made of glass or plastic, over long distances. They provide higher bandwidth and transmit data over longer distances than wired cables. Fiber optics are designed for high-performance data networking and telecommunication, and will last a long time. As fiber optics have become increasingly popular, many companies are offering fiber optics as cabling service. Because of this, it’s important to be aware of the factors and options you have with fiber optics cabling.
The most popular options for fiber optics joining are patch panels and splice cables. Patch panels are used when you want to link two fiber optic end-caps at the same time. The panel acts as extra security to prevent the splicing from being broken. The splice option is typically used when you want to link two separate fibers together, and they are joined by metal patches.
Cable management is a very important thing to keep in mind. If the cable system has been poorly managed, it can lead to disruptions and inefficiency in your office. Your cable managers should be able to give proper attention to your business and your cabling needs during the installation process and during the continued maintenance. Our technicians at Cabling in DFW can guide you through these options, and much more, so we can find the best solutions for you and your business.
