The article provides information on the significance of fiber for security networks. It is said that fiber gives end users and system designers the freedom of higher bandwidth and longer distance. Optical fiber is more environmentally robust than copper and can be installed with the same equipment. Moreover, it is usually a less costly investment for networks due to its nearly limitless bandwidth capacity and ease of upgrade.
