What are the Limitations of fiber optics?

These days Fiber Optic Cable can be used in small or medium businesses to provide them with a larger bandwidth not just from an ISP to their building, but from within, from floor-to-floor, or room-to-room.

Albright Cabling provides services for all Fiber Optic modes, whether it's Single Mode or Multi Mode Fiber.

The type of services that can be provided by Albright Cabling are the following:

  • SC / ST / LC Terminations
  • Fusion Splicing / Mechanical Splicing
  • Break out Kit Installation
  • OTDR / VFL / PMLS Testing
  • SM / MM Line Certification
  • and more !!

Today, the Internet is everywhere, whether you are at work, home or even on the road. When you need a seamless connection that can transfer large amounts of data quickly, having a fiber optic connection is your best bet for that quick seamless connection.

The BEST benefit of  fiber-optics is that it uses light instead of electricity to transmit data, which means frequencies that are used on a much higher scale results in data capacity throughput being much greater.
The fiber-optic cable itself is made from glass or plastic which is not susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI) like metal cables.
With NO electromagnetic interference (EMI), Fiber allows data to flow over great distances without degrading, caused by interference and energy loss that is the limiting factor for all types of communication transmissions.
Fiber optic cabling handles these factors much better than other modes of transmission (i.e. DSL / Cable) . In the future, more and more of our world will be connected via fiber optics as we outgrow the old copper based infrastructures.

While DSL and cable utilize existing phone and TV infrastructure to transmit data as frequency “vibrations” over copper wires, fiber networks transmit data using light over specialized cables packed with glass fibers.
Below is an idea of how each “vibration” is carried through various types of cable.

As you may know, light moves very fast, and because of this fiber optic cabling can enable speeds up to 1,000 Megabits (one Gigabit) per second on networks — almost 100 times faster than the US broadband average of 11.7 Megabit per second.

With some consumers thinking fiber as a new technology, actually fiber optic has been around since the late 1980’s – with the first submarine fiber-optic cable being connected from US to France and Britain. Since then there are literally hundreds crisscrossing the ocean floor and all around the world

What is Fiber Optic Cabling? (FTTC / FTTB)

Benefits to Fiber Optic Service  

 Fiber Optic Cabling:

  • Fiber to the curb (FTTC) or Fiber to the Business (FTTB) which is commonly referred to as the GOLD standard for both residential and business internet connections, this is where the backbone of the internet deployed throughout is Fiber Optic Cable.  

With that being said, its no surprise that fiber optic cabling is the fastest form of broadband technology today.

  • Having FTTC/ FTTB utilizes a single strand of Fiber cable to produce speed capable of reaching 500mbps up to 1Gbps respectively. The BIGGEST benefit of fiber is that it can offer these speeds over much longer distances than traditional copper-based tech like DSL or Cable (depending on the ISP)
  • In most cases Fiber is the best bang for your buck for broadband and is future-proof for as long as we can tell, even if the typical broadband speeds exceed 1000 times faster in decades, a single existing fiber cable will support it.

That being said, if you have Fiber Optic Provider in your area and you are interested in near instantaneous speeds, Fiber optic is your BEST bet and is highly recommended.

What makes Fiber optic better?

What is Fiber Broadband?  

Albright Cabling provides service to the following areas:
Carlisle        Dauphin       Harrisburg      Hershey      Gettysburg     York      Lancaster    Lebanon

Some of the limitations that hinder widespread fiber optic adaptation is the cost requirements of implementing new fiber optic lines into old infrastructures such as  DSL / Cable that are still in service at customer sites.
Having new fiber optic networks is a large capital expenditure of ISP’s.       

However, as older aging copper networks are increasing in price to maintain, more and more are choosing to upgrade to fiber.

If not for financial reasons and future use, buy by being able to provide a supply and demand on better, faster, and more secure connection than the old DSL/Cable to the customer’s site.
With our mission to bring that service and speed to the customer.

Fiber broadband is the fastest method for delivering high-speed Internet to buildings. Similar to other copper based networks, fiber broadband connections bridge the “last mile” between the mainstream Internet “backbone” and customer building.
