Cables as thin as strands of hair are now connecting two villages: Western Springs and La Grange. The cables will save the village money on data transmission, and up to potentially $25,000 a year on the cost of consolidating telecommunication devices. Everything from camera systems to phones are connected to the fiber optic cable. Why fiber optics? The cable is ideal because it’s not only very durable in general, but also resistant to damage from lightning and water.
Cables can make an incredible difference when it comes to speed, and we offer lifetime warranties on our cables, guaranteeing that they last as long as you need them. Here are a few more things that may interest you regarding cable quality.
What’s the Difference Between Cat5e Cables and Cat6 Cables?
Cat5e are used for multi-phone systems, as well as networks. The maximum frequency for this cable is 100 MHz. Cat6 cables are used for the same purposes, but can handle a higher data transfer load of 250 MHz. Cat6a cables, similarly, are used for networks, but can handle up to 500 MHz.
How Expensive is a Good HDMI Cable?
Although many people believe that high-speed HDMI cables can cost $50 to $100, you can actually buy a quality cable for much less in most cases. It’s worth noting that the length of your cable will not affect video or audio quality. There are four main types of HDMI cables: standard, standard with Ethernet, high speed, and high speed with Ethernet. If you need to handle 3D, you’re going to want a high speed cable.
Fiber Optic Cables: Incredible Data Abilities
Fiber optic cables are used for things like connecting villages because of their capabilities. A single fiber cable has been demonstrated to transfer 1 petabit per second. Today, an average fiber cable will contain up to 1,000 individual fibers, allowing potential bandwidths of terabytes per second. While fiber optic cables are reliable and strong, dynamic fatigue can stress the cables over time.
When it comes to cables, it makes sense to invest in quality. Pay attention to the needs of your specific setup and you shouldn’t have a problem finding the right cables for the job.
