Gateway Signal Fiber Optic Services

Gateway Signal provides full fiber optic infrastructure and installation services. As technology advances and improves, fiber optic cables are a better, more reliable solution that replacing traditional copper wires or phone lines. Fiber optic cables are the future of connecting networks. Fiber optic cables consist of glass fibers inside of heaving insulated casing. Fiber optic cables are designed for long distance and high-speed communications and transmit information at the speed of light. ​

Many businesses and organizations have switched from copper phone lines for their network connections to fiber optic cabling for a list of benefits. Universities, hospitals, government agencies, and many other organizations have made the switch from copper wire to fiber optic cabling and have been able to see extensive benefits to their organization’s communications.

Reliability, Increased Bandwidth & Speed



Cost Cutting

Fiber optic cables are more reliable when transmitting information. They are not susceptible to electromagnetic interferences and unwanted transfer of signals between communication channels or crosstalk. Connection and transfer speed are higher than copper wires and phone lines. Even if the cables get wet, fiber optics still can perform. With fiber optic cabling, the bandwidth is higher than copper, meaning your organization will be able to carry more information, more reliability.

Signals for copper wire internet networks eventually degrade the further away the signal is carried. Fiber optic signals can span as far up to 25 miles without degradation due to the use of cell towers to connect to the network.

Fiber optic cabling is much more difficult to be tampered with than copper wiring. If an unwanted source taps into your network and the cable is broken, the fiber optic cable system will not function, allowing your internal communications to remain safe and away from the prying, malicious eyes attempting to enter your system.

Fiber optic cables can be a method to cut costs, while they do typically cost more to install, they cut costs in the long run. They are cheaper to maintain than copper wires. Fiber optics cables are also easier to install. In addition, to be simpler to install, fiber optics also take up less room in wiring trays and conduits than traditional copper wiring. Fiber optic cabling is less expensive to maintain, allows for less downtime and networking hardware.

Symmetric Speed

Symmetric speed means there is equal upload and download times within a connection. With fiber optic cabling, people can benefit from equal upload and download times. People on a network are more likely to be multitasking; therefore they are uploading files and making phone calls at the same time as they are downloading information. Due to symmetric speed, users can accommodate heavy upload and download demands at the same time through the fiber optic connection.

Benefits of Fiber Optic Cables

Switch From Copper Wire to Fiber Optic Cables

Gateway Signal would be proud to be your partner to convert your outdated, copper wire infrastructure to the updated and more reliable fiber optic cabling. We’ve worked with government agencies, education organizations, and hospitals to convert their networks in order to experience the full benefits of a fiber optic internet network.
