Fiber optic cables have the role of transmitting data at high speeds over long distances. Made of fine glass or plastic fibers, this type of cabling is vulnerable to particles, dust and oil, which can interfere with the light signals these cables produce.
A regular cleaning regimen is a must, with specialized fiber optic cleaners to ensure that network, telecommunications and other high-speed data transmission applications remain flawless. Cleaning keeps signals clear and undistorted, preventing loss. To maintain optimal data transmission, it is important as well to keep the connector end face contaminant-free.
