Migrating to 40/100G Networks With MTP Harness Conversion Cable

The market turning to 40G/100G transmission is imperative in today’s gigabit Ethernet applications. MTP cabling assemblies, with their overwhelming advantages, provide a fast, simple and economical upgrade path from 10 Gigabit to 40 or 100 Gigabit applications. As we all know, 40G/100G gigabit Ethernet backbone networks often use 8-fibers per channel, which means most existing equipment doesn’t utilize fibers fully in 12-fiber cabling systems. Today this post will introduce a type of MTP fiber cable—MTP conversion cable which can overcome the problem mentioned above. Basis of 40G/100G MTP Conversion Cable…

Brief Introduction to Ribbon Optical Cable

In order to meet the increasing system bandwidth needs, local area network (LAN) campus and building backbones, as well as data center backbones, are migrating to higher cabled fiber counts. Ribbon optical cables can offer the highest fiber density relative to cable size, maximize utilization of pathway and spaces and facilitate ease of termination, which makes them an ideal solution for the need. This post mainly focuses on the benefits and applications of ribbon optical cable. Ribbon Optical Cable Design Ribbon optical cable is a type of cable widely deployed…

Light Source Communications Plans to Build New Fiber Route

US based dark optical fiber network provider, Light Source Communications will build a new intercity dark optical fiber route in Georgia. The project is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2017. The new fiber optic route, which is designed to have length of around 320 kilometers will connect Atlanta and Augusta and pass through Athens. The network construction on the new fiber optic route is expected to be completed in 2018. The new route will include eight neutral colocation sites to provide space and power. Once the new…
