There's no better way to transport data than through fibre optic cables. Pull up a seat and enjoy your ride.

AT&T developed the ST fibre optic connector in the 1980s and 1990s, and fibre optic networks adopted it swiftly. Straight-Tip is the meaning of the acronym "ST." These ST connections have a bayonet twist locking mechanism, and an SC connector's 2.5 mm ferrule diameter matches an ST connector.

A data cable bundle made of 25 fibre optic cables can go up to a distance of 6.3 km. This is called optical fibre. Data cables can carry up to 1 Gbps of information in fibre optic cables. These optical fibre cables have a larger diameter than copper cables but are slender and fragile. The fibres in the optical fibre are made of pure glass or plastic components with different refractive indexes. An optical device is in the cable that sends and receives light signals.

These optical fibres are strong enough to withstand data and voice signals but are fragile and prone to damage when bent or twisted too much. Optical fibre cables save a lot of data space and are more efficient and durable.

Single-mode and multimode fibre patch cables are available, and the spring-loaded SC connection must be installed properly. The ST connector has a 500 mating cycle rating and an average insertion loss of 0.25 dB. Fibre optic cable is used when faster speeds and higher bandwidth are needed.
