Difference Between Tight-Buffered Breakout and Distribution Cables

There are two basic styles of fiber optic cable construction: loose tube and tight buffered. Tight-buffered cables provide improved reliability and quick termination for today’s cable installation systems. Tight-buffered breakout cables and distribution cables are the two main types of tight-buffered cables. Loose tube cables hold more than one optical fiber, each individually sleeved core is bundled loosely within an all-encompassing…

Very Effective Method of Fiber Optic Cables Selection

After the distribution network plan is developed, the next step we have to do is the selection of the right fiber optic cable. Remember the bulk of the Fiber Optic Cable installed today is for either telephone or office applications. Industrial sites bring some challenges that are not addressed by many of the common fiber optic cable installation design. Just due to…

What are Polarization Maintaining Fibers?

What is Polarization? Light is a type of electromagnetic wave. It consists of oscillating electrical fields, denoted by E, and magnetic fields, denoted by B. Its properties can be described by studying its electrical field E, although we could just as well describe light and its effects in terms of the magnetic field. Light waves can vibrate in many directions. Those…

How To Choose The Right Fiber Patch Cable ?

Do you need single mode or multimode fiber optic cable? If you already have a cable and you need more of it, you can usually tell the type of cable by the color of it. Single-mode cable is typically yellow.  Multi-mode cable (either 62.5 microns or 50 microns) is usually orange. And 10GB multi-mode cable is usually aqua. If you don’t know the color,…

Loose Tube Cables In Outdoor Applications

Fiber optic cables are constructed in two ways: Loose Tube and tight buffered. Loose tube optical cable designs are optimized for outside plant applications and have demonstrated over 20 years of proven field performance. Features Loose tube cables are designed for harsh environmental conditions in the outdoors. They protect the Fiber core, cladding, and Coating by enclosing everything within fairly rigid protective sleeves or tubes. Many…
