Single Mode Fiber Comparison: G.652 vs G.655

Single mode optical fiber is designed as a carrier for the transmission of a single mode of light to propagate at a time. Its specifications are divided into two categories, 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 focus on the simpler…

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…
