Your fiber optic networking will be dependent on a number of factors:Â the distance to be covered, the size of your organisation, the amount of traffic travelling between nodes, the type of ground and how deep your pockets are!Â
Shop around.Â Ask two or three fiber optic networking firms what they will recommend â€“ be sure you understand how they have reached the design they have and enquire about potential future growth, because, as we have seen, the way in which we communicate has transformed since the beginning of this Century.
Deciding on the correct fiber optic networking is not a precise science, although â€œexpertsâ€ will say it is. Why fiber optic at all?Â Well, it will probably be because the distances to cover are greater than can be accommodated by copper networks (CAT5 / CAT6); it might be that the volume of data dictates that you operate at Gigabit speed; or it could be purely for security reasons.
Having decided that you do need a fiber optic networking then youâ€™ll want to know what construction of fiber optic networking cable to use (uni-mode or multi-mode) and how itâ€™s terminated so that you choose the most appropriate active devices.
