I am pleased to announce that mariushosting.com finally has FTTH Fiber Optic Internet connection with static IP for 4 days now, without any interruptions or downtime. In my previous article about the Difference Between FTTN, FTTC, FTTB and FTTH I explained the difference between the various types of Internet fiber optic connections. As you know, mariushosting is visited daily by thousands of Synology NAS fans and for this reason I opted for an upgrade to my Internet connection with a new ISP in Romania.
What are the benefits of this upgrade for my website?
- Reliability and Resistance to Interference: An FTTH connection offers significant reliability advantages over a copper connection due to the fact that the optic fiber is much stronger than the copper wiring. Fiber optic is not susceptible to severe weather conditions such as thunderstorms, hailstorms etc. which can damage or stall data transmission via copper cabling. Fiber optic is also resistant to human or electrical interference, except for when the fibers are physically cut. Unreliable Internet connections can have real consequences and cause profit losses to any business. Any amount of unplanned downtime can bring business communications down and productivity to a halt. Copper cables that support broadband are sensitive to electromagnetic interference which can be caused by the proximity of heavy machinery, for example. Fiber optic connection does not degrade or lose signal as a result of electromagnetic interference. For example, if your organization shares a telecommunications room with other businesses, fiber optic Internet can protect your connectivity if other organizations are using equipment that can interfere with your connection in the same space.
- Lower Latency: Another key benefit of fiber optic connection. Lower latency means packets are sent faster over your network. Your visitors can reach your website hosted on a Synology NAS device extremely quickly.
- Signal Strength: With traditional broadband using DSL over copper wiring the signal degrades as the user moves away from the switch. The signal strength of fiber optic connection does not degrade as quickly over distance.
- Bandwidth: For businesses with a high need for data transmission, it’s relatively easy to reach the limit on your cable bandwidth. While the fiber optic connection for business is not truly unlimited, the bandwidth availability is significantly higher, and speed does not decrease as high demands are put on the network.
FTTH fiber optic connection is a game changer!
