Muscle fiber – enhanced reliability with fiber optics
Fiber is even largely immune to the most common cause of internet outages—overload. An overload of users accessing the internet from the same network is the root cause of many circuit gridlocks, and with the vast bandwidth fiber provides, this is a non-issue. Range improves with fiber as well. Over distances greater than 100 metres, fiber only loses 3% of the signal, where copper loses 94%.
Optical fiber continues to enable connectivity and improve upon reliability—it is the optimal choice when reliable internet is a must.
A reliable internet connection is not only convenient, but necessary. Average users are demanding quality mobile and online access like never before, for streaming, surfing and gaming. For business, internet is critical for survival, whether it’s for processing payments and orders, sending emails, tracking inventory, crunching numbers or building an online presence.
Since fiber optic cables transmit pulses of light and not electrical signals, they are very resistant to the interference that would typically interrupt a copper line connection. In fact, unlike copper wire, fiber optic cables are resistant to fire, electromagnetic interference, lightning, radio signals and signal scrambling. Fiber networks are far less likely to go out during a power outage.
