Fiber Optics is basically a light-based technology that is used to carry information from one place to another. The cable used is made up of strands of glass or plastic.

There are basically two types of fiber optics: Single-Mode Fibers and Multi-mode Fibers. You can visualize the communication taking place in a fiber optics cable by imagining light traveling through the internal mirrored walls. This process is known as internal reflection. Certain impurities in the glass can result in the degradation of the signal. Fiber Optics is without a doubt, one of the most reliable means of communication. It can be used to transfer data of high bandwidth, over long distances.

 

The optic cable is extremely reliable and is resistant to multiple external factors. This is usually not the case with coaxial cables. Moreover, fiber optics is unaffected by electromagnetic radiation as well as radio rays. This makes the optic cables highly suitable even for industrial areas.  Unlike coaxial cables fiber, optic cables are barely affected by changes in weather. However, certain harsh weather conditions can have an adverse effect on the working of the optic fibers. Let’s discuss in detail how external factors such as weather can impact fiber optic cables.

 

Impact of Cold Temperature

 

The good news is that fiber optic cables are usually not affected by any changes in the temperature. However, certain harsh climatic conditions can pose a great deal of threat to the condition of the optical cable. In areas where temperatures are below freezing, there is a possibility that the expansion of ice can cause the fiber optic cable to break.  Low temperature can cause the cable to become brittle and eventually crack. These cracks will give room to the moisture from entering within and result in signal attenuation. Replacing your fiber optic cable can be extremely expensive; therefore it is highly recommended that you choose a cable that is appropriate for the weather around you. Similarly, cold temperature can also have an adverse impact on coaxial cables. Freezing weather usually causes the cables to contract which would in turn affect the functionality of the cable.

 

Impact of High Temperature

 

Fiber optics cables work best around room temperature although, cables do not show any losses at the temperature whi""
