Learn how to set up a high-speed fiber optic network in your home or office. We’ll cover everything from the basics of fiber optic cabling to the advantages it provides over traditional copper cabling. You’ll learn about greater bandwidth, immunity to EMI, improved security, lower latency, longer distances, smaller size, and increased durability.

Fiber optic cables are much faster than copper cables because – as the name suggests – they carry data optically, ie. using light, so data travels down the fiber at literally the speed of light. You can also run them over much longer distances without signal loss because light isn’t prone to electromagnetic interference and they’re also more durable than their copper counterparts, being able to withstand harsh weather conditions, lightning strikes and temperature changes. That makes them ideal for longer runs, like from your house to a garden office or between commercial buildings.

We’ll walk you through step-by-step on how to install and connect fiber optic cables between your network switches, whether you’re connecting two buildings via a fiber optic cable installation or rooms within the same building. You’ll see how easy it is to run fiber optic cables, and how much more efficient your network will be with fiber optic technology.

By the end of this video, you’ll know how to run fiber optic cable in your home have a complete understanding of how fiber optic cabling works and be able to set up a future-proofed network that provides faster, more reliable data transmission.
