Fibre optic cable is comprised of a glass strand about the size of a hair over which lasers transmit light in different wavelengths to provide communications services. Through these cables large amounts of data can safely and securely be transmitted over long distances. Fibre optic cable is the medium over which all present age digital media (including voice and data services) are delivered. Copper and coaxial cable, which previously were the method to provide these services, suffer decibel loss (noise) that limits the distance over which they can reasonably provide these services.
Early telecommunications companies provided voice services over copper and some were owned by the provinces to ensure that all citizens received a connection. As technology advanced, cable companies started up and used coaxial cable to provide their connectivity. The computer age brought us the internet; cellular networks were constructed with both advances in technology and customer needs bringing about the demand for more competition in the voice and data markets.
More and more businesses count on high speed, reliable internet connectivity to transmit information to clients and vendors over longer distances and at higher bandwidths. GCS General Contracting Services has the fiber optic cable installation expertise that your business & residential needs.
