When it comes to moving data the better the conduit the more reliable the data transfer. In the early days of voice based telephony the carrier medium was typically a copper based wire. Copper provided enough flexibility to allow the wire to be strung over long distances and the ability to carry a variety of frequencies. However, as the phone lines began to require more capacity the telephone companies realized that another method would be necessary to handle the newly anticipated loads. This new method of Fiberoptic cabling Oklahoma eventually became the backbone for much of the countries over-burdened telephone systems.
Fiberoptic cabling Oklahoma is a technology that uses glass or in some cases a polymer to create fine threads for carrying the data stream. The fiber optic cable is actually a bundle of these threads with each individual thread or ray being capable of transmitting messages that have been modulated onto frequencies of light. This in itself gives fiber optics a distinct advantage over metal carriers because the speed of the signal is not limited to the speed of the electrical carrier wave.
Because of the speed and reliability of Fiberoptic cabling Oklahoma this technology is perfect for many uses besides the national phone circuits. For example, many businesses make use of data intensive network systems that are perfect for fiber optic systems. Fiber optics can carry data digitally, a form closer to what the computer uses. Metal networking systems on the other hand require the data bytes be converted into an analog data stream before transferring over network wires. Another useful benefit is the quantity of data that can be transferred over a fiber optic system. A properly installed fiber optic network can handle video systems, telephone networks and computer traffic all at the same time.
Fiberoptic cabling Oklahoma installed by contractors such as Dane & Associates Electric Company come in two types. The most common is the multiple mode fiber optic used to carry a number of light rays. The alternative is the single mode fiber optic that is designed to carry a single data ray over long distances. The type of material and the size of these fibers are determined by the use of the cable. For example, in applications where a longer wavelength infrared is required, fibers made from fluorozirconate, fluroaluminate and chalcogenide glasses may be used.
