EoPOF

Short for Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fibre, EoPOF is used in home and office network cabling. Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fibre uses optical wave guiding to transmit data between devices. Because EoPOF cables are made of plastic, they can be easily cut with scissors, and there is no need to terminate copper cables or polish glass optical fiber. In addition to ease of use and installation, EoPOF cables are also immune to electromagnetic interference and are cheaper than optical fiber.
