Dark Fiber Optic - What You Should Know

by:TBT     2020-08-20
The term for a fiber optic cable that is currently not being used is called a dark fiber optic. Fiber optic cables that are functioning and have light signals travelling through them are called 'lit' cables; hence if they are unused they are termed as 'dark.'
Alternatively, cables that are not used, as mentioned, would not contain any light pulses inside, so they are called dark fibers. The amount of dark fiber optics buried underground in the United States can span miles and miles.
The reason for such abundance is that back in the 1990s, companies laid down excessive amounts of cables underground. They considered the possibility of having to use more optic cables in the future, so they figured that they could refrain from the hassle of having to dig up the streets again and cause inconvenience just by packing extras in.
Because of this abundance in optics, the prices for these fibers have streamlined to a point where medium to big sized companies can afford them.
Every day, more and more businesses are realizing that buying and creating their own fiber network is more economical as opposed to leasing the same amount of fibers.
One industry that is currently grabbing this opportunity are banks. More and more of them are currently building their own networks. With this dark optic, they can accommodate heavy traffic which is a constant in their business.
Aside from banks, large campuses have been noted to be buying fiber optic by the bundles to create their own network. This just shows how reliable dark fiber optic is in creating and establishing a network, whether for public or private use.
The recent years have seen dark optic becoming a hot commodity among companies looking to establish and strengthen their telecommunications network. You will find several reasons why fiber technology is becoming a great solution when it comes to establishing your telecommunications system.
Here are some of the advantages that dark fiber has over traditional copper wires.
Cost Effective
Getting your own fiber optic cable system in bundles will be much cheaper companies to getting miles of the same in copper wire. Telecommunications companies already know this fact, so they take advantage of it and in exchange they can charge you much less.
Higher Capacity
Being generally thinner than copper wires, you can fit in more fibers in just one bundle, thus, giving you a chance to accommodate more phone lines and to come through into your phone or cable box.
Less Interference
With dark fiber optic cables, you don't have to worry about degradations of the signal, since it is dramatically reduced compared to copper wires. Phone conversations are generally clearer.
Faster Rate of Speed
This type of fiber is ideal if you are going to use it to transmit signals using computers and their networks. With light signals being sent out, the line is relatively clearer and more efficient.
Having all these advantages, it is no wonder that more and more businesses are turning to dark fiber optic and turning them 'lit' to strengthen their companies.
The telecommunications aspect of your company is in good hands with dark fiber optic technology in use.
