We live in a technology-rich age. People and businesses need to transmit an increasing amount of data at lightning-fast speeds. Until recently, fiber optics technology was reserved for elite developers and photon-driven technology champions. Now, increased demand and technology refinement open the doors for fiber optics to a much larger marketplace. Corning optical cable solutions represent some of the best and most advanced fiber optics technology available. Here’s why.

Benefits of Corning Optical Cable Assemblies

Before you make the switch from copper cables to Corning optical cable assemblies, consider the multiple benefits you may experience with the technology. Fiber optics cables are not inexpensive, but they offer a lifetime of instantaneous, dependable communication flows. Any business interested in networking performance will notice the following benefits:

  • Better data transmission quality: Even with shielding, copper cables maintain a certain vulnerability to interference if the cable components fail. Fiber optic cabling does not rely on electrical impulses to communicate and so does not experience electrical noise. 
  • Performance: While you might not think of glass core cables as the most durable products on the market, modern fiber optics offer unprecedented strength, environmental invulnerability, and uninterrupted signal performance. Corning optical cable products are 50% thinner and 80% lighter than copper cable. They bend without breaking and provide some of the longest uninterrupted cabling arrays available. With USB and Thunderbolt configurations, they work in a variety of environments and applications for uninterrupted data flows.
  • Incredible bandwidth: For businesses that need to support a tremendous amount of traffic via ecommerce sites, IoT products, and unified communications applications, the bandwidth that Corning’s fiber optic cable materials provide is second to none. To achieve the same bandwidth as a quarter of a pound of fiber optic cables, a business would need the equivalent of 33 tons of copper cabling. If scalability is important, consider fiber optics as a cost-effective and efficient alternative to copper cabling.
  • Cost efficiency: While not inexpensive upfront, fiber optic cabling delivers the most bang for a consumer’s buck. The technology is secure to meet data security needs, requires less length to deliver powerful support, and can deliver reliable transmissions for a lifetime or longer.
