What are the advantages of Optical Fibers?

One of the frequently asked questions, but would like to know the opinion of members of this website.

Greater bandwidth, Speed and distance, Security, Immunity and reliability, Design, Migration,Cost

Optical fiber is thin cylindrical glass-rods that carry communication signals in the form of light.

1.High bandwidth transmission is possible.

2.Longer distance between repeaters can be achieved due to low loss.

3. very difficult to tap (but not impossible).

4. Immunity to electric signals and therefore can be installed near electrical cables.

5. Light weight cables can be manufactured since fibers are thin.

6. No cross-talk

7. high-speed transmission since light is used.
