FIBRE OPTIC CONTROLS CAN CARRY MORE THAN 10X THE AMOUNT OF DATA THAN CONVENTIONAL COPPER CONTROL CABLE.
One critical factor that determines the bandwidth of a LAN system is the length of the cables. The bandwidth of CAT 5 Multipair UTP is 100 MHz over a distance of 300 feet. That’s enough bandwidth to handle over 3000 telephone calls at the same time. In comparison to the Multimode Fiber Optic cable on a similar LAN, the bandwidth runs over 1041 MHz, which is enough bandwidth to carry over 31,000 telephone calls at once. Fiber Optics has far more superior informaiton carrying capacity over CAT 5 cable.
