Business Advantages of Fiber

Bandwith

Investing in fiber-optic internet can significantly increase your access to bandwidth. Older copper wire infrastructure and TDM technologies are limited in capacity. Because these were originally designed for transmitting voice calls only, the demand for bandwidth wasn't high. For instance, T1's can only carry 1.5 Mbps of internet traffic. DSL (over phone lines) typically carries up to 6Mbps of internet traffic. And because of how electrical signaling works, many types of connections over copper wiring are severly impacted by the wiring distance. The longer the wire to reach the end customer, the slower the service may be.

Services like Ethernet over Copper (EoC) are typically not available if the circuit wiring is longer than 15,000 feet to the end customer. For organizations considering shifting their voice communications to Voice-Over-IP (VoIP), having your bandwidth delivered over fiber can be an indispensable asset.

Upload/Download Speed

Is the speed increase of fiber-optic internet noticeable compared to copper-based technologies? Absolutely!

Many Tekify customers using our fiber network can transmit data at 1 gigabit-per-second. That's many times faster than the federal government's definition of broadband service, which is 25Mbps download and 3Mbps upload as of January 2015.

Cable internet typically maxes out at only 20Mbps upload, and often up to 200Mbps download in select areas. DSL typically maxes out at less than 2Mbps upload, and often 6Mbps download.

With fiber's technological advancement, the concept of "waiting for things to load" is a thing of the past. View our download speed matrix above to compare to slower internet services.

Distance

The signal for copper Internet networks degrades as the signal is carried from the internet service provider's central office (CO) to the end customer's location. Fiber optic technology was originally developed for use in long haul networks spanning great distances. Fiber technology's ability to send data over long distances without losing speed is one of it's major strengths.

Certain types of fiber connections can be transmitted for almost 100 miles without the need for any amplification. While most business build outs won't require similarly robust types of fiber connections, your signal isn't in danger of degrading within shorter metropolitan fiber networks that would serve your business.

And unlike copper connections, fiber service doesn't slow down with distance. Fiber connections either work or they don't - there is no degradation due to distance. The resulting internet service is fast every time!

Security

In an era of increased attention towards cyber security, fiber-optic internet is touted as a cost-effective way of instantly increasing your Internet security. Intercepting copper cable can be performed easily by connecting taps to a line to pick up the electronic signals.

Putting a tap on a fiber-optic internet cable to intercept data transmissions is incredibly difficult. It's also easy to quickly identify compromised cables with the use of light-level measurements.

Reliability

There are a number of factors that can cause outages when an organization is reliant on copper cable-based internet. Temperature fluctuations, severe weather conditions, and moisture can all cause a loss of connectivity. Old or worn out copper cable can even present a fire hazard, due to the fact it carries an electric current. Additional reliability concerns associated with copper wiring include risks of interference from other nearby copper wiring, electronics or even nearby radio signals. Also, copper wiring goes back to the telephone company's central office where disconnections can happen. Our fiber network is fundamentally independent of the phone company, their equipment and their termination points.

Cable Size

The speed of internet transmitted via copper wiring is directly correlated with the number, weight, and size of the copper wiring used. For a business to achieve a higher speeds, more wiring pairs or cables must be used, which requires more space in a company's telecommunications room and conduits. With the price of copper as high as it is, this is an expensive proposition.

Fiber internet speed is not related to the size of the fiber cable. Fiber cables are far lighter weight and smaller than copper, which means they're easier to use and less demanding of limited space in small phone rooms and conduits.

Cost

In some cases, investing in new fiber internet might cost more than using old copper wiring in the short term. Ultimately however, the total cost of ownership (TCO) over the lifetime of fiber is lower when considering the extra benefits fiber internet delivers for your business.

The advantages of fiber make it a more cost-effective investment for organizations of all sizes.

While IT needs can vary drastically between businesses, the benefits of fiber-optic internet are making it an increasingly common choice for most businesses who have it as an option to them. Companies who choose to invest in fiber typically find that the total cost of ownership, bandwidth potential, and speed gains are immediately noticeable and unparalleled compared to older internet access technologies.
