Fibre Optic cabling uses light to transmit data as opposed to electrical pulses. As a result, higher speed and reduced data losses can be achieved over greater distances than with copper cable. There are two basic types of fibre optic – Single (SM) and Multimode (MM). SM is used when even greater distances are necessary. For example, when connecting to the speed cameras which are a feature of our motorways, or for ISP connections.
Datacat focus on MM fibre optic cabling which is more commonly used for backbone cabling in business, education and administration environments.
Fibre optic cabling can seem confusing due to the number of different standards. We are here to guide you through the process.
