A network technician is researching the use of fiber optic cabling in a new technology center. Which two issues should be considered before implementing fiber optic media? (Choose two.)

  • Fiber optic cabling requires specific grounding to be immune to EMI.
  • Fiber optic cabling is susceptible to loss of signal due to RFI.
  • Fiber optic cable is able to withstand rough handling.
  • Fiber optic provides higher data capacity but is more expensive than copper cabling.
  • Fiber optic cabling requires different termination and splicing expertise from what copper cabling requires.
Explanation and Hint:

Fiber optic media is more expensive than copper cabling used over the same distance. Fiber optic cables use light instead of an electrical signal, so EMI and RFI are not issues. However, fiber optic does require different skills to terminate and splice.
