With the accelerating growth of LAN traffic, Gigabit Ethernet solutions have become increasingly necessary, pushing network administrators to look for higher speed network technologies to meet the demand for more bandwidth.

Fiber optics provide a much higher degree of flexibly and future bandwidth/speed expansion as opposed to its copper counterparts. Generally, copper will support Gigabit and multi-gig transmission rates only for very short distances. Many systems are set up utilizing a hybrid system by using optical fiber and then copper at the end user point. This leverages the bandwidth and EMI/RFI advantages of fiber for the longer length and main distribution legs of the network, while using copper for the very short desktop and non-backbone connectivity, allowing a very easily routable and inexpensive connectivity solution without implementing desktop media converters.

Valdor designs, develops, and manufactures fiber optic Gigabit and multi-gig Ethernet solutions in a multitude of styles, sizes, lengths, and application specific features.
