Fibre optic wires are becoming a favourite among companies looking to keep up with modern times and install computer infrastructure that will make their network extremely fast, reliable and efficient. It carries many benefits over traditional network cables, but is not always necessary in every situation. If your office network is small and relatively straightforward, traditional cables are sufficient. Fibre optics become necessary when your ICT networks are large and need to incorporate many devices without fail. ONEEIGHTY Networks is a premium supplier and installer of fibre optics, helping to modernise businesses in the Johannesburg and Cape Town regions.
- Fibre optic cables are non-conductive
- Spark hazards are eliminated
- Fibre optic cables offer high bandwidth over long distances
When it comes to fibre optics, ONEEIGHTY Networks goes beyond supply and installation. Splicing of these cables is imperative in large networks requiring long lengths of cabling. Splicing is the joining of two or more fibres together for a long, continuous optical cable.
ONEEIGHTY Networks also conducts an Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) test to ascertain the length of current fibre optic cables, including splice and mated-connector losses. This is to ensure that there are no faults in your network that could affect efficiency and reliability.
