Fiber-Optic Connectivity (Top 10 Key Benefits)

Today, organizations can do business at all times of the day and night and in every imaginable location. That means business enterprise needs a reliable, fast, and affordable internet. Fiber-optic connectivity is up to 10 times faster than standard broadband. And with the variety of cloud applications and other services available for unified communications, it’s no wonder organizations everywhere are switching to fiber-optic connectivity to run their network.

Fiber Connectivity

10 Key Benefits Of Fibre-Optic Connectivity

Here are the top ten key benefits.

1. Strong Clear Signal

Fiber-optic signal strength doesn’t degrade as quickly over distances as traditional broadband internet that uses DSL or Ethernet over Copper. A strong, clear signal is essential for companies with multiple workspaces and offices throughout the building.

2. Internet with Symmetric Speed

Internet speed is a vital factor in your business’s productivity. Symmetric speed equalizes upload and download times. Between uploading video content, downloading content, large data files, and communications, you need to accommodate heavy demands that happen simultaneously via the company internet connection. Data, customer files, marketing assets, and video conferencing all require fast Internet with symmetric speed.

3. Quicker Processing

Latency is what happens when users experience delays while waiting for data to process over an Internet connection. Fiber-optic connectivity eliminates many of the latency issues users experience when downloading or uploading large video files, massive data files, or high-definition content. Users can upload and download huge files without any lag—additionally, lower latency results in better voice quality for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) users.

4. Reliability That Keeps Your Business Running Smoothly

Consistent uptime and data transmission are essential to keep your business running smoothly. A stronger signal, faster speeds, and quicker processing make fiber-optic connectivity more reliable than traditional internet options. What’s more, fiber optic connectivity is more reliable than cable when it comes to environmental damage and electromagnetics or radio frequencies.

5. Fast Cloud Access With Fiber-Optic Connectivity

Cloud technology is proving invaluable to a variety of organizations, as most businesses today use the cloud in some way from productivity apps to data storage. Fiber-optic connectivity delivers faster access to cloud storage, enabling better customer service and team collaboration, as well as faster data access and more power for CRM, VoIP, and site hosting.

6. Flexibility to Be Anywhere at Anytime

Your organization gains flexibility. Employees, managers, and clients can all access data with an internet connection and credentials to sign in to the network from anywhere in the world. That means you can expand your organization with remote workers, without adding physical office space.

7. Scalability to Grow With Your Organization

A fiber-optic connection can support a variety of cloud applications and services that are flexible and expand your business capabilities. Software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud storage, and VoIP are examples of applications that benefit from fiber-optic connectivity. Flexera’s State of the Cloud Report found that over 90 percent of businesses have a multi-cloud strategy. With fiber-optic connectivity, your organization can build out its network in the cloud with different cloud services that provide everything from large data transfers to integrated machine learning.

8. Increased Productivity

Faster and more reliable Internet means increased productivity with apps such as video conferencing, messaging, and other real-time collaboration tools that help your team manage their time and work together no matter where they physically are.

9. Fiber Optic Network Equals Security

Companies of all sizes are at risk of a cyber-attack. Ponemon Institute’s Data Breach Study found that security breaches cost, on average, over three and a half million dollars. Fiber-optic Internet provides the most secure connection for network data. Fiber networks don’t radiate signals making them hard to hack, so fiber-optic connectivity increases security and protection against cyber-attack. And the extra power of fiber-optic means capabilities to run cloud-based firewalls, and more.

10. Costs and Competition

Fiber-optic connectivity is getting significantly more affordable as cable companies are replacing old systems. Today, organizations need higher bandwidth to run the variety of cloud applications they need to keep up with the competition. As more and more companies discover the flexibility and scalability in cloud applications, fiber-optic connectivity will prove an essential cost of doing business.
