5 Reasons Businesses Are Switching to Fiber Networks

Businesses are switching to fiber networks to benefit from the increased bandwidth, security, and more.

A variety of companies across many industries are continually expanding their digital workspace. As more and more work occurs online and relies on fast Internet connections and download speeds, the company’s bottom line can improve while their cabling systems experience significant stress. Having the right cabling can make a considerable difference regarding bandwidth, voice, data, multimedia, and other aspects of a business. The following reasons are critical motivators for businesses switching to fiber networks. 

Faster Speeds and High Bandwidth 

Copper wiring was initially created with voice communication in mind, not the high-speed bandwidth we require today for everyday applications. Fiber cables are designed for multimedia use and can increase your bandwidth potential significantly. Switching to fiber networks also gives companies faster speeds, making communication of all kinds much more efficient. 


Fiber optic cables are less vulnerable to being affected by everyday events like the weather because they do not transmit electricity through their wires. Fiber signals are sent by light, which is faster and more reliable. This reliability helps your business avoid lengthy downtimes. 


Switching to fiber networks means that you don’t need to compromise quality for size. The speed of copper wiring is related to its size, and larger cables mean higher prices. The size of a fiber cable does not impact its performance. Fiber cables are a manageable size that makes installation easy and doesn’t require extra costs for improved performance. 


Cybersecurity and safety are constant concerns for companies that keep most of their company data on their network. Tapping into fiber cables from the outside is much more complicated than hacking into copper or electrical writing. Switching to fiber networks not only provides you with faster data transfer but safer data storage as well. 


The durability, functionality, and lack of frequent maintenance of fiber can make it a very cost-effective option in the long run. Additionally, the speed of your network connection will promote more productivity and satisfied customers, helping your business at large.
