Nowadays, practically every communication networks rely on Fiber Optics, a strand of optical pure glass as thin as a human hair that carry digital information over long distances. It allows customers to have a "future proof" network as fiber technology can be upgraded as per your needs. Fiber Optic's extra distance capability and seemingly unlimited data rate makes it possible to perform beyond conventional copper wire. One of many usage of Fiber Optic is to connect point to multipoint service such as from central offices to regional offices, or from one Point-of-Presence to the other nodes. Its virtue lays on its capabilities in providing greater flexibility, reliability and scalability to support any network architectures..
Advantages that make Fiber Optic is more reliable than copper wire :
Fiber Optic provides high bandwidth for voice, video and data applications, much higher than copper as it can support up to 100 Gbps and beyond. Higher bandwidth means fiber can carry more information with greater fidelity than copper wire..
Speed and distance
Fiber optic signal is made of light, therefore, very little signal loss occurs during transmission, and data can travel at higher speeds and greater distances.
Your data is safe with fiber cable. It doesn't radiate signals and is extremely difficult to tap. If the cable is tapped, it's very easy to monitor because the cable leaks light, causing the entire system to fail. If an attempt is made to break the physical security of your fiber system, you'll know it.
Immunity and reliability
Fiber provides extremely reliable data transmission and completely immune to many environmental factors that affect copper cable. Fiber optic also less susceptible to temperature fluctuations than copper and can be submerged in water.
Signal loss is happening for all frequencies, except for those with the highest frequencies.

Fiber is thin & lightweight, and more durable than copper cable.
Although fiber is still difficult to terminate than copper, technology advancements had made termination process a lot easier in the field.
Overall, fiber cable is more expensive than copper cable in the short run, but it may be less expensive in the long run. Fiber typically has less maintenance cost, less downtime, and requires less networking hardware.
