Fiber Internet connectivity can deliver advantages to organizations of every size, especially those that use the cloud for data storage or applications. For example, when fiber-optic cabling is teamed with VoIP (Voice-over-IP), your telephony can see tremendous improvement, boosting your business communications. The following will discuss the other advantages your company can get from fiber connectivity.


1) Bandwidth Increased

Although fiber-optic Internet for enterprises is not actually unlimited, bandwidth is significantly more, and speeds are not reduced when there is greater network demand. High demand typically occurs with one of the following:

  • Cloud applications
  • File sharing
  • SIP trunking
  • Video streaming
  • Web conferencing

You may have noticed symptoms of low bandwidth availability, such as latency, slowness, and pixelated video images.

2) Cloud Access

Ranging from simple data storage to CRM (customer relationship management) solutions, the cloud is now a crucial component for applications, hosting, and other tools. More than 9 out of 10 companies are utilizing the cloud in some way. The superior capabilities in bandwidth and fiber optic speed results in your employees having faster access to data and applications in the cloud.

3) Dependability

Providing more dependable Internet connectivity, fiber optics gives businesses advantages over companies that use copper cabling. Fiber-optic cables are much less vulnerable to poor weather conditions, which can negatively affect data transmissions over copper cabling. Unless they are physically damaged, fiber is also more resistant to electrical interference.

4) EMI Resistance

Copper cabling providing broadband Internet is susceptible to EMI (electromagnetic interference) when near large machines. In contrast, fiber optic transmissions are not affected by electromagnetic interference. Companies sharing telecommunications areas with other organizations can thus benefit from implementing fiber-optic cables for their network.

5) HD Video Support

Many organizations consider video conferencing and teleconferencing essential for marketing, sales, and employee training. This is more true because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies equipped with a fiber-optic Internet connection can increase their use of video conferencing without noticeably affecting network performance. Studies have found that video conferencing can result in significant savings by reducing employee travel.
