Secure Your Connection

Fiber Optic infrastructure has features in place that will keep you connected & protected.

Security & Fiber-Optics

Fiber-optic technology is extremely secure. If someone attempts to tap a fiber-optic cable, there is a high chance the glass will break.  Additionally, electromagnetic signals are not radiated by fiber-optic cables because they are dielectric, meaning they do not transmit electricity
