Fiber Optics in Modern Business
Did you know that the Fiber Optic Association has a full section of its website that is dedicated to a layman’s description of fiber optic system design and installation? The Association lists common questions that many people have about fiber optic installations, and it also helps users to find out about important topics concerning fiber optics. Let’s take a look at some of the issues that are addressed in this section of the Fiber Optic Association website.
How to find the right fiber optic cable installation company
Your fiber optic installation is one of the centerpieces of your digital infrastructure. In order to compete in the modern business landscape, connect with your partners and protect the essential information of your employees and customers, you must take the time to ensure a proper installation. Here are some of the most important things that you need to know about fiber optic installation and how to hire fiber optic cable installation companies.
Look for the fiber optic cable installation partner that has specific experience with your situation. If you are conducting a fiber optic installation in a commercial area, then partner with a company that can prove this workmanship. If your fiber optic cable installation is being done for a residential property or development, then match the company to that initiative.
Take the time to conduct online research on past clients. If you have time, you may even visit the fiber optic installation client in person. Take note of how smoothly they can conduct day to day operations. Pay attention to clients that are installing the same kind of specs that you are.
Best questions to ask the fiber optic cable installation contractor
Can you maintain the service that you will be giving me? The switch from your previous communications to fiber optic cable needs to have as little downtime as possible. Check with your contractor to see how you may reduce going offline.
Can you minimize the disruption? Although a fiber optic cable installation will bring expanded service into the lives of tenants, they certainly do not need their lives upended in order to achieve that. No one wants huge throngs of cables in their rooms or dust all over the place. Use a contractor who is familiar with methods that don't need to create noise or dirt.
How are you planning this fiber optic installation? The contractor that you choose should have a plan for a worst-case scenario, not just roses, candy and promises of low downtime. Go through what may happen and how your contractor will protect you and your tenants should something go wrong.
Things to look for in fiber optic cable installation contractor
The first thing that you should look for in a fiber optic cable installation contractor is the proper certification. This certification may come from an independent agency like The Fiber Optic Association, Inc., or from the jurisdiction that will house the new fiber optic installation. Also, look for an appropriately insured and bonded contractor. This protects your building as well as your tenants and shows a level of professionalism from the contractor.
Choosing your installation partner from the many fiber optic cable installation companies that are available can be a tough job. Use the best practices above to make it a bit easier and ensure the success of your installation.
The Myth of Fiber Optics Being New
Fiber optics have recently become very popular; however, this does not mean fiber optics is a new technology. Chicago was the first city to install a fiber optic link in 1976. Long-distance links for commercial purposes were in use by 1980. Today, 90% of all long-distance calls are taking place over fiber optic networks.
The majority of large city CATV systems have already converted over to a backbone that is fully fiber optic. These backbones now have the ability to transmit video, voice and data more easily than ever before. The land backbone is also a majority fiber backbone at this point. Storage area networks, also known as SANs, are quickly following suit. The real reason that most people believe that fiber optics is a new technology is that the commercial desktop computer is the last major technology to use fiber optics instead of copper for the majority of its internal components.
The Reason to Go Fiber
If you choose a fiber optic cable installation, you will actually be following the example of the most powerful governments and military structures in the world. Fiber optic cable gives you more security than any other infrastructure material. It is widely used for many critical systems including perimeter alarms and security cameras. These systems function much more readily under a fiber optic infrastructure.
If you are dealing with high-bandwidth communications that must remain secure over long distances, fiber optics is definitely the way to go. Copper is simply too expensive when compared to fiber optics, and copper is less reliable and easier to splice into.
Take a look at the layman’s guide for yourself when you have a chance. Do it before you make a decision about whether to include fiber optics in your infrastructure. We are sure that your perspective will change, and then you can call us with the rest of your questions before installation!
