Ethernet cabling has been around for a long time and has proven its worth as well as its longevity with the increases in better cabling options with Cat6 and beyond in Roselle, Kenosha, Rockford, Sturtevant, Woodstock, Itasca, and the surrounding areas. But there are things that normal ethernet cabling just can’t do because of how it is made, and our team at Network Technology Innovations can instead bring fiber cabling into the picture. And while it has continued to gain more widespread use, installing fiber cabling can provide you with benefits that may not be apparent on the first day. Contact our team today to learn more about the benefits of fiber cabling.
Benefits of Fiber Cabling
One of the more interesting aspects of fiber cabling is that it can be installed in such a way that only a portion of the cabling is initially used. This is often referred to as “dark fiber” and is a way to future-proof fiber lines when they are first installed. As traffic increases and more space is required, these “dark fibers” can be lit up and used, thus increasing capacity without needing to dig up the lines again to add to that capacity.
Having a physical connection is usually better than a wireless connection, but even fiber cabling is a superior choice when compared to other types of connections. DSL internet connections are good but degrade as you get further away from the provider’s central office. Satellite connections can be disrupted by weather, and Wi-Fi can degrade the further away you are from the source, or the materials used in the building that you are trying to connect with.

The fact is that fiber cabling is a superior choice in most cases and can even be something that is used inside a building as well. Where ethernet cabling can be susceptible to crosstalk or electromagnetic interference because fiber cabling uses light and not electricity to send the signals it doesn’t have this kind of interference. Fiber cabling can even get wet and still operate just fine, again because the signal is light and not electricity.
When you are looking to have a cabling choice that will last for many years without becoming obsolete, fiber cabling is one of the few answers that will fit the bill. While it is a bit more expensive than ethernet cabling, the benefits of fiber more than pays for itself in Roselle, Kenosha, Rockford, Sturtevant, Woodstock, Itasca, and the surrounding areas.
