Loose tube Fiber Cable

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…

What are Optical Fiber and Fiber Optic Cable?

With the development of science and technology, the demand for large-scale communication construction is increasing. The fiber optic cable industry has developed rapidly and has formed a complete industrial chain from fiber preform, optical fiber, fiber optic cable, sensors, optoelectronics, and components. Fiber Optic Cable Definition To get clear what is fiber optic cable here starts from the fiber optic…

Shin-Etsu Announces Expansion of Preform Production

Japanese preform manufacturer, Shin-Etsu Chemical has revealed it’s plan to dramatically increase production of optical preforms, which is the key raw material for optical fiber in the coming years. The global fiber optic market has been undergoing through a massive shortage of optical fibers that makes delays in many projects. The shortage has also driven the global optical fiber prices…

OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 Multimode-Fiber-Types

What Are OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 Fiber Patch Cable?

Fiber optic cable can be divided into several types. Usually, we see single-mode and multimode fiber types available on the market. Multimode fibers are described by their core and cladding diameters. The diameter of the multi-mode fiber is either 50/125 µm or 62.5/125 µm. At present, there are four commonly used OM (multimode) fibers: OM1, OM2, OM3, and OM4. Each…

Rollable Ribbons will Change Fiber Optic Cable Design Concepts

Rollable Ribbon technology has been introduced by Japanese fiber optic cable manufacturers since the past five years that had started revolutionize the cable design concepts. High fiber count and high-density cables are now available in the market, thanks to the technological advantages offered by the intermittently bonded ribbons. Intermittently bonded ribbons offer the advantages of mass fusion splicing and at…

The Most Common Uses of Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables have revolutionized the telecommunications industry. Using fiber optic cables, telecommunications links realize much higher data rates over much greater distances with lower loss. As a result of these advantages, fiber optic communications systems are widely employed for applications ranging from major telecommunications backbone infrastructure to Ethernet systems, broadband distribution, and general data networking. This article will introduce…
