Fiber-Optic Networks Have Key Advantages
Fiber-optic cables are able to be used at lengths of over one-quarter mile with speeds up to 1.25 Gigabits Per Second, breaking through the 100M (~328') barrier of CAT5e and CAT6 copper Ethernet cables.
Fiber-optic cables are not subject to electrical noise like copper wire or radio interference issues like long-range WiFi meaning they provide improved stability and performace in challenging environments.
Fiber-optic cables are non-conductive - no risk of shock or short-curcuit, meets electrical codes between structures.
Fiber-optic cables are made from non-corrosive materials which translates to greater expected equipment life, especially in the harsh marine environment of Montauk.
