Powerful fibre-optic network
With its own fibre-optic infrastructure, Axpo WZ-Systems offers its customers an efficient, future-proof fibre-optic network for site networking and coupling of process-critical OT systems. The modern infrastructure comprises an over 3,000-km long fibre-optic network and enables high-quality connections with high bandwidth and low attenuation. The safety and reliability of this infrastructure meets the highest requirements, as the fibre-optic cables are routed in the underground cables of the high-voltage lines.
Axpo WZ-Systems' Dark Fibre Services are part of a crisis-proof data network. Our services are aimed primarily at security authorities and organisations, as well as private and public companies with an increased need for security, flexibility and performance. Dedicated connections allow large customer sites or data centres to be connected. The fibre-optic cables are based on international standards, are future-proof and offer the possibility of achieving high data transfer rates over long distances. Our infrastructure is state-of-the-art and is regularly maintained and updated.
Fibre-optic cables (FO) are cables and wires made of glass fibres for the transmission of light. The light is guided in fibres made of quartz glass. Fibre-optic cables with several bundled conductors are also known as fibre-optic cables and are mechanically reinforced to protect and stabilise the individual fibres. They are used primarily in communications engineering as a transmission medium for wired communication systems. Compared to the older electrical transmission based on copper cables, optical transmission can cover much greater distances and achieve considerably higher transmission rates.
