THE ADVANTAGES OF FIBER OPTICS
THE ADVANTAGES OF FIBER OPTICSA well-designed system of fiber optics as a communications medium offers four primary advantages over traditional electrical systems:2. Performance. Optical fiber cables have a much greater bandwidth capacity than wire. This allows for high-volume, high-speed data transfer. Data transmission of optical fiber can easily reach speeds of hundreds of gigabits per second, far higher than copper communications cables.NOTE: The terms "bits per second" and "hertz" can be confusing. One bit per second and one Hertz are rough equivalents, and are sometimes used interchangeably.The term Hertz comes from the electrical and electronics industry.
