What is a fibre optic cable?

A fibre optic cable is a kind of network cable that is designed for long-distance data networking and telecommunications. They are made up of strands of glass fibres that are wrapped within insulated casing. These important cables offer higher bandwidth, making them commonly used to support internet, cable TV and telephone systems.

The key to their high performance can be found in their internal structure. Fibre optic cables carry communication signals through pulses of light. This light is generated either by small lasers or light-emitting diodes (LED). The strands of glass fibres act as a pathway for the light to pass through. 

The reason why fibre optic cables can provide such a high performance lies in the fact that they can transfer data at the speed of light. Fibre optic cables are theoretically capable of transmitting up to 44 terabits of data per second.

What are the benefits of fibre optic cables?

There are numerous reasons why fibre optic cables are considered to be one of the most preferable types of cabling for high-performance needs. Some of the major benefits of fibre optic cables include:

Bandwidth: Fibre optic cables offer larger bandwidth than metal cables, meaning more information can be transmitted.

Speed: As data travels through fibre optic cables at the speed of light, they provide the highest speed in comparison to other types of cables.

Reliability: Fibre optic cables are also extremely reliable for internet communications. Their ability to transfer data at high speeds means that uploading and downloading information through fibre optic cables is significantly faster and more reliable.

Distance: Fibre optic cables can reach up to 100km.

Security: Fibre optic cables keep data secure as they do not radiate signals that could be intercepted like other, less secure cables do.

What is the difference between single mode fibre and multi mode fibre?

There are two types of fibre optic cables in Australia you can purchase: single mode fibre and multi mode fibre.

Single mode fibre optic cables have a single pathway for the light to travel through. Meanwhile, a multi mode fibre optic cable allows light to travel across a variety of pathways.

Single mode fibre optic cables are generally preferred as they support more power and can theoretically offer unlimited bandwidth. Multi-mode cables provide different bandwidths and distance capabilities, depending on the grade of fibre.

Single mode fibre optic cables outperform multi mode fibre cables in terms of supporting long-distance transmission. With a single mode fibre optic cable, most electronics can transmit signals up to 10km. Meanwhile, the average multi mode fibre optic cable can transmit signals somewhere up to 300 metres to 550 metres. Multi mode fibre optic cables are generally used in places that only require communications over a short distance, such as an office building or university.

What are fibre optic cables used for?

Fibre optic cables are used for both long-distance and short-distance data networking that requires large amounts of data to be transmitted at a high speed. In addition to fibre optic lights, some other common uses of fibre optics are:

  • Internet infrastructure and telecom networks
  • Aircraft and cars
  • Solar energy systems
  • Medical technologies and biomedical devices
  • Sensors and lasers
  • Inspection devices
  • Cable television
  • Military applications
