Copper Cable vs Fiber Optics

Copper Cable vs Fiber Optics


Fiber optic cable has many advantages over copper cable. Fiber transmits data much faster over longer distances than copper. Fiber cable is also smaller diameter and weighs less than its copper counterpart, making it ideal for a variety of cabling solutions.

Fiber optics are immune to RFI (radio frequency interference) and EMI (electromagnetic interference) making them ideal for applications where close proximity to electronic devices can cause RFI and EMI disruption.

Fiber optic cabling uses less power and provides less signal degradation than copper cables. They are generally non-flammable, virtually unable to be tapped, and are better suited for data and illumination transmission.
