Recommended hardware

However efficient the cable is, outdated or unsuitable hardware between the fibreoptic socket (OTO) and the computer can have a noticeable adverse effect on data throughput. The recommended routers listed below feature bi-directional Gigabit optical technology. This bi-directional optics converts the optical signal into an electrical one, thus enabling the glass fibre to be used efficiently.
