Pulling Eye Pre-terminated Indoor/Outdoor Multifiber Cable Assemblies

In the case of building network connectivity between two structures, within a large building, or connecting networks from the cabinet of the third-party Internet service provider (ISP) to your home, optical fiber cable is used in order to meet the requirements of bandwidth, distance and noise. Outdoor fiber optic cable is good for outdoor cabling but not suitable for indoor applications. At the meantime, ordinary indoor fiber optic cable is not designed for outdoor cabling. Only indoor/outdoor f...

Understanding Fiber Optic Cable Jacket & Fire Rating

Fiber optic cable is constructed from the inside core, cladding, coating, strengthen member to the outside cable jacket. As the bare fiber is easily broken, fiber optic cable jacket is needed to provide protection for the shielding and conductors within the cable. The cable jacket is the first line of moisture, mechanical, flame and chemical defense for a fiber cable. Fiber Optic Cable Jacket Material Fiber cable jacket is made of various types of materials. It’s important to consider the ja...

Tight-Buffered Fiber Distribution Cable for Indoor and Outdoor Use

Fiber optic cables are constructed in the loose tube and tight buffered. In the past two decades, tight-buffered fiber optic cable has been sufficiently proved to be suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. One of the main reason is that tight-buffered cables provide fast, easy, economical termination which satisfies the diverse requirements existing in high performance fiber optic applications. Distribution fiber optic cable is also a tight buffered design, which is ideal for applicat...

Why Not Use Bend Insensitive Fiber Optic Cable to Reduce Bend Radius?

Fiber optic market has witnessed the increased use of optical fiber cable assemblies. FTTx networks are the impetus for the adoption of fiber cables. During installation of these cables, more attention is focused on the effect of bend radius and the need to maintain a specified cable bend radius. So far, are you still worried about bending the fiber optic cables? Bend insensitive fiber optic cable can help you solve this problem. Bend Radius of Fiber Optic Cable Because optical fiber is sens...

Duct Installation of Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber optic cable is usually (but not always) installed in an innerduct that provides mechanical protection for the fiber optic cable. Generally, the duct is available in plastic, concrete, steel, iron and so on. As fiber optic cable is sensitive to excessive pulling, bending and crush forces, much care shall be taken to avoid cable damage during its duct installation. Methods of duct installation, installation preparation and procedures would be covered in this article. Installation Methods ...
