Understand IP67 Connector Rating for Waterproof Fiber Patch Cables

It’s known to us that concentration of water moisture in fiber connectors will lead to glass damage and severely affect the performance of optical cables. To prevent fiber from contaminating by water is a critical concern in outdoor cabling. Luckily, with the advent of IP67 waterproof fiber connector, excellent water protection can be offered to fiber optic cable. Basics of IP67 Waterproof Fiber Cables For IP67 waterproof fiber patch cable, the “IP” here is the abbreviation of “Ingress Pro...

Single Strand Fiber Solution – Is It Right for You?

It has been a long time that fiber optic system has required two strands of fiber to accomplish full duplex communications—one is for transmitting and the other is for receiving. But the emergence of single strand fiber transmission changes the situation. It seems to be a better alternative for network managers who is with limited fiber capacity and limited budgets. In addition, it is becoming a more and more popular option for new installations. But is it right for you? Take several minutes to ...

Mode Conditioning Patch Cord Utilized in 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet Applications

Generally, we use multimode fiber (MMF) patch cables for multimode equipment while single mode fiber (SMF) patch cables for single mode equipment, like MMF patch cord for 1000BASE-SR transceiver and SMF patch cord for 1000BASE-LR transceiver. But there are occasions when we cannot directly plug multimode patch cord into some 1G/10G electronics in 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet Applications. Typical cases are where 1000BASE-LX/LH, 10GBASE-LX4 and 10GBASE-LRM transceivers are used over legacy multimode fib...
