Fiber Optic Router, Modem and W.A.P?

  KyriRo 03:44 26 Aug 2014

I'm pretty new to the Networking industry. In fact I'm going to school atm and this question is for a project.

We chose to use fiber optic cabling where ever we could. Now I'm at the part where I need to choose a router, modem, and wireless access point. Being new I have no idea where to ever begin. Putting in phrases such as 'fiber optic router' or fiber optic modem' only bring up pages and pages of forum threads so I'm almost sure my phrasing is completely off. That leads me to believe that maybe I don't know enough to ask the right question. Thus I have come here.

What phrasing should I be using to look for these items? Are there sites where I can find these items reasonably priced? Examples? I'm more than happy to find everything for the project. I just really need to know what exactly I'm supposed to be looking for.
