Cabling for the future

Fibre optic cabling allows data to be communicated over longer distances and at higher bandwidths than electrical cables, ideal for installing IT systems, networks and infrastructure across large sites and multiple buildings. Our experts can advise you on the right kind of fibre optic cabling for your network as well as fully installing, testing and supporting your network and infrastructure both now and in the future.
 

Greater bandwidth

Fibre optic cables can provide more bandwidth, essentially allowing them to carry more data than traditional copper cables of the same diameter making them faster and more efficient. Depending on your network demands, our cabling experts can install single mode fibre optic cabling or multimode fibre optic cabling, to ensure your network performance is always up to speed.

Let's talk

Better reliability

Fibre is not affected by the elements which means it has better, more reliable connectivity than some copper wires, as things like severe weather and electromagnetic interference don’t cause any disruption. On top of that, it doesn’t present the same safety concerns as old fashioned, worn out cabling, meaning you can rest assured your business is safe from disruption in more ways than one.

Thinner and stronger

Compared to copper cabling, fiber optic cables are thinner in diameter and lighter in weight, yet they can withstand more pull pressure and are therefore less prone to damage and breakage. It also makes installation easier and cabling containment and enclosures can house more fibre optic cabling in a small space, making them space efficient too.

Greater flexibility

You don’t have to go for full fibre cabling. Thanks to media converters and modular patch panel solutions, fibre optic cables can be incorporated into existing networks to increase speeds and meet both current and future network demands.

That’s right, there’s more than one type of fibre optic cabling


Single-mode fibre optic cabling uses laser lights to transmit data while multi-mode fibre optic cabling uses light emitting diodes or LEDs. This makes multi-mode cables significantly thicker than single-mode, so they are typically used over shorter distances. Plastic optical fibre (POF) is a newer, plastic based cable as opposed to glass, designed to deliver the same performance but without the expensive overheads. 

Within single mode fibre optic cabling there are 2 basic distinctions: OS1 and OS2. OS1 fibre optic cabling is a tight buffered construction which is best suited to indoor applications such as data centres. OS2 cabling on the other hand is a loose tube design better suited to outdoor installations such as street and underground installations. 

When it comes to multimode cabling, we specialise in OM3 and OM4. OM3 is capable of running 10 Gigabit ethernet at lengths of up to 300 metres, or it can support up to 100 Gigabit ethernet over shorter distances. OM4 is a further improvement on OM3 and supports 10 Gigabit ethernet over lengths up to 550 meters or it can deliver 100 Gigabit ethernet at lengths up to 150 metres. 

Sound confusing? Our experts can help design the right cabling and network infrastructure to suit your network demands and your budget.
