Fiber Optic Network Design and Cabling

When it comes to fiber optics, precision and careful handling are essential. Fiber optic networks are built using cable bundles that contain thin strands of glass, through which data is transmitted using light particles. The cabling process safeguards these delicate strands against physical damage, harsh environments, and weather conditions. Our experts install and secure your fiber optics, so you can feel confident that your network is safe and reliable.


Fiber optics are replacing copper wiring in many areas, including telephone and internet services, cable and satellite TV, business security, medical technology, and more. Here’s why:

  • Installation is easier, faster, and more cost-effective due to its lighter weight
  • Data transmission is more efficient, providing higher bandwidth and requiring less electricity
  • Reduced costs, as expensive metals like copper are not needed
  • Grounding is not necessary, as fiber optic cables are made of non-conductive materials like glass and plastic
  • Performance remains unaffected by weather conditions
  • Fiber optic cables are highly resistant to water corrosion
  • Unlike copper cables, fiber optic cables do not pose a risk of electrical fire if they break
  • They cannot be spliced into for data theft, providing enhanced security
OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber are the two most used forms of Fiber Optics in the creation of Local Area Networks (LANs). Both OM3 and OM4 are laser-optimized 50/125 multimode Fiber Optics and are built with the same connectors, terminators, and transceivers (which are vertical-cavity surface emitting lasers, or VCSELs, that can emit light at upwards of 850 nanometers). The major difference is bandwidth; OM4 can transmit data at upwards of 4700MHz-km, whereas OM3 has 2000 MHz-km capability.

Fiber Optics are only as efficient as the cabling they are contained within, and if installed in inhospitable conditions, these cables can quickly deteriorate. Armored Fiber Optic cabling and enclosures ensure that your valuable data transmission can run seamlessly regardless of where your Fiber Optics must be installed. These enclosures can be made of metal, polymer fibers, polyethylene, and Kevlar.


Single and Multimode Fiber Optics

Single and Multimode Fiber Optics operate in a similar fashion by reflecting light repetitively within their glass cores. The construction of Single and Multimode Fiber Optics, however, is very different. Single-Mode Fiber Optics operate by sending one beam of extremely focused light, while Multimode sends numerous sources simultaneously within the same glass fiber. While both have practical applications, Multimode has enhanced bandwidth, which is advantageous for faster speeds and efficiency.
