ADSS and OPGW Cables for Overhead Transmission Lines

Overhead fiber optic cable systems have become a key factor in telecommunication networks used by operators and power utilities. The key advantages of using overhead electricity distribution lines to carry cables providing broadband connectivity can be summarised in three distinct areas: speed, security, and cost. ● Speed: It is always much, much quicker to install fiber optic cable by attaching it…

Fiber Optic Core-How Much Do You Know About It?

For anyone who wants to know fiber optic cable, it’s a must to know the structure of an optic fiber. An optical fiber consists of three basic parts: the core, cladding, and the coating layer outside the cladding. What is the Core of an Optical Fiber? An optical fiber core is a glass or plastic made cylinder running along the fiber’s…

Cable Jacket Rating: Something You Need to Know

As the first defense line against the surrounding environment, the cable jacket prevents the core of fiber optic cable from water, flame, chemistry, etc. Meanwhile, the outermost layer keeps inert to gases and liquids that may be exposed during its service life. Besides, the cable jacket provides a smooth, low friction surface. The jacket must be made of a material…

Basic Knowledge of Fiber Optic Cable Jacket and 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…
