Benefits of Fiber Optic Internet: Part 2

By November 15, 2016 July 13th, 2017 No Comments

In my last post I discussed why fiber-optic networks are the gold standard for business data transmission. Now I want to touch on what value fiber offers businesses. Just to review; fiber optic technology converts electrical signals carrying data to light and sends the light through transparent glass fibers that are about the diameter of a human hair. However as thin as that is, it can withstand 100-200lbs of pressure. Compare this to standard copper cables, which can only sustain 25lbs of pressure. This boils down to fiber being less prone to damage from the elements and longer lasting than copper lines.

Reliability and Durability

There are numerous factors when it comes to internet outages for a business. Variables such as temperature, severe weather, and moisture can affect a business’s connectivity. The durability of fiber-optics offers a significant boost in reliability when compared to copper internet connectivity. Fiber is not susceptible to inclement weather conditions or electrical interference. Unless physical cut, internet connectivity over fiber optics cables will not degrade or stall data transmissions. This makes it an added value to the business that requires the internet always be up and running. Eliminating downtime and speed issues could result in weeks’ worth of productivity increases for years to come. If your company is suffering from internet connectivity issues, you could be losing thousands of dollars each year in operating cost. This is most prevalent if your company uses cloud services, VoIP, or Software-as-a-service. Investing in reliable fiber internet has short-term cost that will pay off in the long run.

Cost and Cost Savings

All in all, the total cost of ownership over the lifetime of fiber is lower. The benefits you acquire with fiber optics adds value to your business. Information technology needs are different for every company, but the requirements for business data transmission are ever increasing in the digital age. Businesses that invest in fiber find that the increased productivity gained from bandwidth potential, internet speed increases, and reliability are worth the initial investment.
