Why fiber optics_is_the_better_option[1][1]

  1. 1. By<br />Jennifer Bonds <br />Why fiber optics is the better option<br />
  2. 2. What is Fiber Optics? <br />Fiber Cabling is used to broadcast<br />communication signals between two points using light.<br />It is made from glass or plastic that transports light throughout the fiber. <br />
  3. 3. Construction of a Fiber Strand <br />1) Core<br />2) Cladding<br />3) Buffer <br />4) Jacket <br />
  4. 4. Advantages<br />Fiber is more environmentally friendly than Copper.<br />Less of a fire risk<br />Made from most proficient resource on earth, sand.<br />Fiber has lower rates of attenuation than Copper <br />Attenuation in Fiber—20 db/km <br />Attenuation in Copper—30 db/km <br />
  5. 5. Advantages <br />Fiber more flexible than Copper <br />Lighter and smaller than Copper <br />Uses less space in conduit<br />II. Does not emit signals into the environment. <br /> I. Difficult to tap into a fiber wire’s signal. <br /> II. Easy to monitor <br />
  6. 6. Disadvantages<br />More Expensive wiring <br />500 feet of Fiber wire- 100 dollars<br />500 feet of CAT 5e (copper) wire-<br /> 50 dollars <br />More expensive training/equipment<br /> I. High Cost specialized equipment<br /> II. Creating fiber cables are more complex <br /> than Copper.<br />
  7. 7. Recommendations<br />Recommendation—Fiber will be a good choice because of more signal security, flexibility, and safer for the environment. Also, it is less attractive to thieves. <br />
  8. 8. Conclusions<br />Conclusion- Fiber is the wave of the future. With<br />the price of fiber going down 60 percent per<br />year, it will only take some time before it catches<br />with copper. <br />
