Optical Fibres are fibres of glass, usually about 120 micrometres in diameter, which are used to carry signals in the form of pulses of light over distances up to 50 km without the need for repeaters.
Optical fibres carry signals with much less energy loss than copper cable and with a much higher bandwidth, this means that fibres can carry more channels of information over longer distances. Optical fibres are much more difficult to tap information from undetected; a great advantage for banks and security installations. They are immune to Electromagnetic interference from radio signals, car ignition systems, lightning etc. They can be routed safely through explosive or flammable atmospheres, for example, in the petrochemical industries or munitions sites, without any risk of ignition.

Wired network's have been a traditional network infrastructure for many previous years and will continue for many more. And with cable quality increasing the speed and performance of wired networks grows at an alarming rate with network speeds ranging from 10/100/1000 mbps. Wired networks are extremely reliable and very rarely suffer from signal derogation, 98% of failures result in a loose connector or otherwise central hub defect.
Twisted Pair cabling systems range to a maximum length of 500m.
Wirless has come of age. With the increase of worker mobility the demand for wirless networks has grown, giving user's the ability to move freely within an office or home. Wirless technology has finally matured to a stable and reliable form of data transference, and altho direct cable is still faster wirless is within an acceptable download speed.
