Data Fiber Cabling
A planned and organized cabling system will save you energy costs, maintenance problems and provide for future expansions. Our extensive knowledge and years of experience will allow you to save on installation expenses, easily implement future upgrades while saving year after year energy costs.
Fiber optic cables have a much greater bandwidth than metal cables. The amount of information that can be transmitted per unit time of fiber over other transmission media gives you tremendous advantages. A well-planned Fiber cabling system will reduce power and maintenance costs plus eliminates the time and money spent on locating and rectifying system issues. A structured cabling system provides an enhanced level of flexibility, helping to improve performance and provides for future business growth. Fiber Optic services include:
- Design and installation of fiber optic cabling systems
- Terminations of fiber optic cable using the latest standards and products
- Fiber optic fusion and mechanical splicing
- Fiber shelves and Light Interconnection Units
- Fiber optic cabinets, racks, shelving, and patch panels
- Innerduct, conduit, and cable tray installation
- Cable testing and certification
Recent Project: Zendesk
Zendesk's collaborative work spaces require an array of technology integrations:
- Video over IP as a more flexible and cost-effective way of sending audio and video over the IT infrastructure.
- An effective and affordable direct LED video wall.
- Individual Zoom-rooms

According to Hyperline, one of Fearing’s vendors for the fiber cables, fiber cabling has 5 distinct capabilities:
- Higher Bandwidth: Fiber moves more data at higher speeds than copper cable. In fact, optic signals move through fiber at 70% of the speed of light.
- Greater Distance: Attenuation is lower with fiber optic than with copper cable, which means there is less signal loss, and data can travel farther.
- Higher Security: Optic signals cannot be hacked like electrical ones can be, so data transmission is more secure.
- No Electric Power: Fiber optic cable is not subject to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which means the signals maintain higher quality because they are not prone to interference and degradation due to EMI.
- Lighter Weight: Fiber optic cables are lighter than copper and easier to handle. They provide higher density at lower diameters, which means more cabling can fit in a tray, and there is more room for air to flow, which makes cooling more efficient.
Fiber lasts. It is immune to lightning, power surges, corrosion. For reasons of reliability and stability, it is being employed in government and health care operations. It is the best cabling mechanism we can use to create a truly reliable networked infrastructure.
What technologies use fiber optics?
There are many technologies in both residential and commercial environments: security & access control systems, between equipment racks, home theater video distribution, building to building network distribution and network switches to access points.
In the corporate environment, advances in connective technologies make an upgrade to fiber cabling nearly inevitable at this point. The changing prominence of the data center to most business functions makes reliable and fast access to data a high priority for business executives everywhere — or at least it should be.
Straightforward networks on traditional copper systems have given way to advanced systems like “cloud platforms, hybrid environments, software-defined networks, data lakes, edge processing and other advanced architectures that require high performance from end to end,” according to Hyperline Cabling Systems.
Fiber optic cabling in your home makes you ready for 8K video and future technologies, allows you to leverage the full power of your ISP connection, will handle increased connected devices, and increases the value of your home. Your home theater experience will never be the same!
Whether for residential or commercial projects, your design and installation contractor will be a key partner, and their expertise in emerging technology is a the differentiator that will allow your network to evolve as technology continues to advance.
