Cables - Fibre Optic Cable

Fibre Optic Cable is thin flexible cable made of an engineered glass. Data is transmitted through the cable via light pulses. The Optical Fibres act as wave guides; light inside the fiber is subject to total internal reflection. Fibre Optic Cable is used for long distance and high speed data transmission as signals as subject to less loss and higher transmission rates than what is attainable with conductive wires.
