POF

(Plastic Optical Fiber) Optical fiber extruded from polymer materials. The POF cable diameter is much greater than glass optical fiber (GOF) but is more flexible and easier to install than glass. POF is typically used within a building rather than for long distance transmission. For long cable runs, repeaters are required every 100 meters. See optical fiber.
