We are trying calculate how will the network performance improve when we switch from 1Gb copper LAN to Fiber Optic.
We have 5-20 people simultaneously working on a Server via the 1Gb LAN. There are constant read-write operations since we work with graphics, e.g. image sequences, large video files, etc.
The real transfer speed for a single user on a good day is around 50MB/s (0.4 Gb).
We would like to know the more or less average increase in speed (for a single user as mentioned above) should we switch to Fiber Optics. I looked everywhere for any real-life values but there are only theoretical numbers.
