Difference Between Media Converter and Network Switch

Media converter and network switch are both widely used in today’s high-speed network applications. In some scenes, one can be used to replace another one. Then, which one should I choose for my network? What is the difference between the media converter and the network switch? This post will cover the knowledge of media converter and the network switch, and explain…

Cut Out Costly Mistakes With Fiber Optic Cleaver

To get good fiber optic splices or terminations, especially when using the pre-polished connectors with internal splices, it is extremely important to cleave the fiber properly. Imprecisely cleaving of the fiber ends, therefore, will result in improper matching. So, the end of the fiber must be cleaved to a 90-degree flat end when it is prepared for a connector or splice. However,…

How to Use and Maintain The Fusion Splicing More Efficiently?

What is Fusion Splicer? Fusion splicer may be the act of joining two optical fibers end-to-end using heat. The thing is to fuse both the fibers together in such a way that light passing with the fibers is not scattered or reflected back from the splice, and thus the splice, as well as the region surrounding it, are almost as strong…

Introduction to ODC Connector

What is ODC Connector? ODC connectors are designed for the fiber to antenna (FTTA) applications. The ODC product range incorporates precision-machined rugged brass housings with two or four optical terminations in both single mode and multimode fibers. The environmentally sealed, fixed and free connectors are supported by a range of highly crush resistant, high tensile strength “tactical” style cables.ODC fiber…

Basic Knowledge of Fiber Connector

Fiber Connectors are generally used where flexibility is needed at termination points when an optical signal is routed. One of the most prominent reasons is that repeated connections are made possible with Fiber Optic Connectors. Examples would include connections from receivers to equipment pigtails or normal termination, or when re-configuring systems. Repeated connections make it easy to meet changing customer requirements…
