Making the Move to Fiber Optics


Fiber optics has become more popular in today’s hyper-connected world. You can work faster, smarter and safer when you are working with fiber. It is needed to successfully deploy emerging technologies such as software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Many businesses are making the move every day. Should you make the move too?

Involta has identified the top five advantages fiber optics can bring your business if you are considering the move from traditional copper connections to fiber. Here are a few to get you started.

  1. Increased bandwidth – More data can be carried through fiber optic cables because data is sent as pulses of light, rather than transmitting data as electrical currents. This means your business will have faster response times to resources, including cloud management tools, applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
  2. No electromagnetic interference (EMI) or noise – Fiber optics are immune to EMI, due to human-made and natural sources, while copper cables consistently suffer from EMI, especially around utility and power lines.
  3. Reliability/Stability – Fiber can handle more data and multiple users at the same time. It is also more reliable at high speeds and distance while copper cables can suffer from signal loss as they get further from their source.

Did you know that Involta has been building fiber plants for nearly 20 years, including All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) fiber (common in fiber-to-the-premises systems), fiber interconnects, system upgrades and new system construction? We provide small- and large-scale fiber construction services for both carriers and our clients. We are here to help you get there.
