Transform your business at the speed of light, literally! The race between copper cable and fiber optic cable is over and fiber optics has won. Fiber optic cables minimize maintenance expenses due to their strength and lack of interference due to electrical noise. Fiber optic cable has much better signal strength over longer distances, more bandwidth, zero to very low voltage, and take up less space in conduits.
