What is Fibre Optic Internet and How To Work?

I guess that you have heard of fibre optic internet, which can offer high-speed download. Below for you to understand how it works.

What is fiber-optic Internet?

Fibre optic internet is an internet connection that transfers data fully or partially through fiber optic cables. “Fiber” refers to
the thin glass wires inside the larger protective cable. “Optic” refers to the way the type of data transferred – light signals. Fiber-optic cables can deliver high-speed data over greater distances.

How does fiber optic internet work?

Fiber-optic cables are with thin fibers of glass or plastic that transmit information as pulses of light across long distances. Compared to copper wires, they can carry much more data, they are much less prone to data loss, and they are completely immune to electromagnetic interference (as you might get from solar storms).

Fiber internet comes in three types, but fiber to the home (FTTH) is the best.


Fiber to the home or premises (FTTH )

It means your fiber internet connection goes straight into your home. If your home isn’t already set up to receive a fiber connection, you may need your ISP to drill holes or even dig nearby. This is the holy grail of fiber connections. FTTB (fibre to the building/basement)-Fibre-optic cables run all the way to your premises, which is why this is sometimes called FTTP (fibre to the premises). If you live in a flat in a large building, the fibre terminates at the building rather than your individual living space, but it still provides very fast speeds.

Fiber to the curb (FTTC )

It means your fiber connection goes to the nearest pole or utility box—not an actual concrete curb. After that, coaxial cables will send signals from the “curb” to your home. This means your connection is consist of part fiber-optic cables, part copper wires.

Fiber to the node or neighborhood (FTTN) 

It provides a fiber connection to hundreds of customers within a one-mile radius of the node. The remaining connection from the node to your home is often a DSL line that uses the existing telephone or cable lines.

When carrying out the fiber optic internet to your home or office, you must make the fiber connection get protected?  We have an array of good quality optical termination boxes, splitter distribution boxes,  fiber optic outlets to protect your network, and moderate price and great service makes your project within budget.
