FIBER OPTIC QUESTIONS
2) WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS OVER COPPER WIRE SYSTEMS?
Answer: Fiber optic cable offers greater bandwidth than copper wire cable, which results in greater data baud rates and throughput. Fiber can transmit optical signals over greater distances with less signal degradation (attenuation) than can copper. Also, fiber optic cables are immune to voltage surges, remote lightning strikes, and electromagnetic interference.
