Permanent magnets and strong electromagnets may damage data that has been recorded on the computers diskettes and on the video cassettes, because the information is on these in a magnetic form.

Fiber Optic Cables are immunity to electromagnetic disturbance and its signal transmission characteristics make it the ideal support for high-speed data transmission. There occurs no electromagnetic radiation.
The light waves travel along the optical core which is made from silica, melted quartz or plastic.
