What is the major difference between CAT5 and Fiber Optics cable?
The major difference between CAT 5 and Fiber optic is Technology, Speed, Connectivity, Fault tracing, etc.
Where CAT 5 or CAT 6 LAN technology supports 10/100 MBPS data speed, Fiber optic supports 10+GBPS.
As per the cable length, the fiber optic cable supports more distance with almost zero percent data loss.
Comparing to copper cables the Fiber optic cables provide more bandwidth.
