Fibre has changed the market. Traditional PABX systems have turned into IP phones, or headsets now being used through existing networks and computer systems. Cloud computing is changing the way businesses use and spend money on IT infrastructure.
Is fibre going to save equipment from surges and lightning strikes? While it’s true that an electrical surge cannot travel up a fibre cable, surges can still affect your network through other sources. Eskom power will continue to be supplied on copper cabling, so moving your telecommunications over to fibre, isn’t going to solve the problem. Eskom’s unstable grid and any up-and-down power outages (load shedding) leaves you vulnerable. Additionally, however, most business or small home networks still utilise copper CAT5e or CAT6 copper cabling internally. A nearby lightning strike could easily cause inductions of electrical current and damage equipment.
