Aerial Fiber Optic Cable Installation Guide

As one of the common outdoor fiber optic cables, aerial fiber optic cable is suspended from poles, pylons or mounted on buildings. When it comes to aerial fiber optic cable installation or deployment, here are two choices for the aerial cables: loose tube cable and ADSS (all-dielectric self-supporting) cable. Loose tube cables are often designed for underground use or aerial use when lashed to a messenger. ADSS fiber optic cables are mostly designed for aerial use. However, no matter what type o...

Is G.652 Single Mode Fiber Your Right Choice?

As we all know, multimode fiber is usually divided into OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4. Then how about single mode fiber (SMF)? In fact, the types of single mode fiber seem much more complex than multimode fiber. There are two primary sources for the specifications of single mode optical fiber. One is the ITU-T G.65x series, and the other is IEC 60793-2-50 (published as BS EN 60793-2-50). Rather than referring to both ITU-T and IEC terminologies, we’ll only stick to the simpler ITU-T G.65x in this articl...

How to Reduce Various Types of Losses in Optical Fiber?

Fiber optic cable, which is lighter, smaller and more flexible than copper, can transmit signals with faster speed over longer distance. However, many factors can influence the performance of fiber optic transmission. Losses in optical fiber are negligible issues among them, and it has been a top priority for every engineer to work with and figure out solutions for. Different Types of Losses in Optical Fiber The various losses in optical fiber are due to either intrinsic or extrinsic factors...

How to Identify the Fiber Color Code?

We have been using different types of fiber optic cable in labs and data centers for years. It is not unusual for a green hand to mix up the 50/125 and 62.5/125 multimode fibers, or the single mode fibers, not to mention the multi-fiber cables that may consist of tens and hundreds of fibers. Fortunately, there are systems made to address these issues, such as the EIA/TIA-598, which is the most recognized system worldwide. It includes fiber color code for different types and numbers of optical fi...

Getting to Know Cost-Effective ADSS Cable

ADSS cable (all-dielectric self-supporting cable) is a type of optical cable that contains no conductive metal elements. It is used as a communications medium, installed along existing overhead transmission lines and often shares the same support structures. ADSS cable is adopted for high voltage, middle, small span conditions in Power Transmission System or mazy terrain, which offers a rapid and economical means for deploying optical fiber cable along existing aerial rights-of-way. Both single-...

OM3 vs OM4 Multimode Fiber: Which Should I Choose?

Multimode fiber (MMF) offers users the opportunity to extend link distances, increase network reliability, and lower costs by centralizing electronics. OM3 multimode fiber has been widely deployed for short-wave 10G optical transmission by utilizing laser-optimized fiber. OM4 multimode fiber is designed to support high-speed networks such as data centers, financial centers and corporate campuses. We may be baffled at the difference between OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber, this passage would decode O...

What is Armored Fiber Cable?

Constantly troubled by installing inner-duct or conduit to secure your optical fiber link? It is no longer a problem simply by adopting armored fiber cable—with build-in metal armor inside the outer jacket, armored cable provides extra protection for fiber optic cable, without sacrificing flexibility or functionality within fiber networks. Therefore, armored fiber cable is more robust and reliable when encountered with rodent, moisture and other issues that may cause damage. The superior feature...
