Optical cables serves to transmit signals and data by using light radiation, particularly for long distances. Compared with conventional metallic cables is particularly significant advantage of the transmission capacity of cable routes and eliminate the impact of interfering electromagnetic fields on the quality of the transmitted signal. They have small dimensions and low weight, low damping and are resistant to eavesdropping. According to its design is intended to build a telecommunications and computer networks, signal transmission cable, for use in information systems and in industrial automation and measurement technology.

Transmission distance:
- copper: max. 100 meters
- optics: ... m
Capacity / width of the transmission route / rate
