CE Pro 100 Names Top Fiber Optic Cable Brands
Cleerline leads the fiber optic cable category, followed by Celerity, Corning, Tributaries and Metra Home Theater.
CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.
In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
Fiber optic cable is a new category for the Brand Analysis.
Over the next few years with the increasing bandwidth requirements needed to transmit 4K signals with HDR, and looming next-generation technologies such as 120Hz refresh rates and 8K, this category could experience a lot of growth particularly as dealers utilize solutions from the commercial market.
Metra Home Theater: 4
