Fiber Optic Cable

What is fiber optic cable?

Fiber optic cable is a communication cable made of optical fibers used to transmit optical signals. Optical fiber cables have the advantages of large transmission capacity, long transmission distance, and strong anti-interference ability. They are an important part of modern communication networks.

Classification of optical fiber cables:

  • Classified by fiber core mode: single mode jumper, multimode jumpers
  • Classified by use: communication optical cables, data optical cables, power optical cables
  • Classified by laying method: aerial optical cable, pipeline optical cable, buried optical cable
  • Classified by connector type: LC, SC, ST, FC, APC, etc.
  • Classified by type: OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OM5, etc.
  • Classified by length: 0.5m, 1m, 2m, 3m, 5m, 10m, etc.

Applications of optical fiber cables:

  • Communication network: used to build various communication networks such as backbone networks, metropolitan area networks, and access networks.
  • Data center: used to connect servers, storage devices and other equipment to build a high-speed Internet network.
  • Industrial control: used in factory automation, power systems, transportation and other fields.
  • Medical system: used in hospital information systems, telemedicine and other fields.

Advantages of fiber optic cables:

  • High transmission rate: Fiber optic cables can transmit hundreds of Gigabits or even Tbps of data.
  • Long transmission distance: The attenuation of optical signals in optical fibers is very small and can be transmitted hundreds or even thousands of kilometers.
  • Strong anti-interference ability: optical signals are not affected by electromagnetic interference.
  • High security: optical signals are not easily eavesdropped or intercepted.

1. What does fiber optic cable consist of:

  • Core: The core part of an optical fiber, made of glass or plastic, used to transmit optical signals.
  • Clad: The material surrounding the core of the fiber has a lower refractive index than the core and is used to limit the propagation of optical signals within the core.
  • Buffer layer: A protective layer that protects optical fiber from external shock and vibration.
  • Outer sheath: The outermost layer of the optical cable, used to protect the optical cable from the external environment.
