Introduction to fiber optics point to point connectivity
Point-to-point fiber technology provides excellent connectivity to offices that need direct connections between remote servers and local workstations
As a business telecommunications company in South Sudan Juba, with experience for over one year, we understand what business owners need from their internet providers. They need to make sure their employees stay productive with high speeds and maximum uptime. And if there is an issue, they need a provider that will respond and fix the problem quickly.

Advantages of P2P Fiber Connectivity
- When you have access to bandwidth that is dedicated to your connection, you naturally end up with higher bandwidth per port. This translates into dramatically faster communications via your point-to-point connection.
- Similarly, the technology provides equal bandwidth whether you are uploading or downloading – which is especially important for telecommunications, where audio and video uploads can experience packet bottlenecks that cause stream quality compromises in non-P2P situations.
- Perhaps most importantly, because P2P technology supports manual controls over bandwidth per port, it gives you the greatest possible flexibility and governance over the connection at your disposal.
Disadvantages of fiber optic cable
- Fiber optic cables are difficult to splice. Fiber optic splicing is the joining two fiber optic cables together. There can be data loss due to fiber optic cable splicing.
- Because of the physical nature of fiber optic cables, it can be damaged easily.
If you bend fiber optic cables beyond a limit, it will break.
- Fiber optic cable is expensive to install. It needs costly splicing machines and trained specialists to install fiber optic cables.
Why you should choose fiber optics point to point
- Speeds for heavy web browsing, file sharing, and online backups
- Capacity for frequent HD audio streaming and VoIP services
- Capabilities for hosting servers and complex cloud-based services
- Superior download and upload speeds/dedicated bandwidth
Internet speed, users and what they can do
Fast facts download and upload for Fiber P2P
Download speeds from 25 Mbps to 1 Gbps
Upload speeds from 5 to 880 Mbps
What are Mbps, MBs, and their differences?
Mbps means megabits
MBs mean megabytes
One megabyte is equal to eight megabits, but the terms are used in specific ways: Megabits per second (Mbps) are generally used to describe the speed of an Internet connection, whereas megabytes (MB) usually refer to the size of a file or storage space.
In practical terms, one megabit per second is slow but usable broadband Internet. Five to ten web pages, one minute of music, or a half a minute of video is about one megabyte of data.
The latency for Fiberoptics point to point is 33-50 ms when connected directly to the POE Injector(Single user)
