Fiber Optic Patch Cord Knowledge

In the old days of grind-and-polish technology used in fiber optic communications, fiber patch cord installation seemed to be a difficult and hard-to get business which required a skillful specialist. But owing to the progress made in fiber optic terminations and technologies, fiber patch cables have seen extremely heavy use in telecommunications and wide area networks, since they feature high…

Three Useful Fiber Patch Cords and Their Use

With the rapid advancement of fiber optic technology and trend towards optical communications, fiber optic patch cord has realized its great use in high speed data transmission networks, found in routers, fiber patch panels, media converters and even in hubs and switches. Compared to its previous counterpart, fiber optic jumper causes lower signal loss, delivers more bandwidth and carries more…

Comparison Between Several Fiber Optic Cable Types

Fiber optic cable, as one of the fast-growing transmission mediums, has gained more and more popularity among users. Admittedly, compared with traditional copper wires, fiber optic cables reduce issue potentialities that are common with traditional copper wires, such as loss and interference. Made of sophisticated glass or plastic, fiber optic cables can send signals over longer distances at higher bandwidths…

Copper Cable vs. Fiber Optic Cable

When we try to compare the fiber optic cable with copper cable, we may be thrown into trouble most of the time. Actually, it is too difficult to be impartial because the pros and cons between them are so clear. Apparently, fiber optic cable outweighs copper cable in the aspect of speed or bandwidth. It is much faster than copper…

Three Factors That May Destroy Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cable, which has become the essential component of nearly all modern computer and communications systems nowadays, has been deployed all over the world. Where there is a city, there are thousands of fiber optic cables connecting people to the networking systems. Without them, it’s hard get the information in real time. But there is a problem that once…

Shortage of Optical Fibers and Updates on Market Price

Optical fiber supply to fiber optic cable manufacturing companies has been delayed due to the natural disaster that hit Japan. Japan is home to many major optical fiber and preform producers. The earthquake and the tsunami that followed might have done considerable damage to at least some of the manufacturing facilities of the world leading optical fiber suppliers.

Nextrom to Setup Preform and Optical Fiber Manufacturing Company in Russia

We could read one such news from Knill Groupe, which is the world leading optical fiber and fiber optic cable machine manufacturer. Knill Groppe has two brand names such as Rosendahl and Nextrom. A new optical fiber and preform manufacturing plant will be established in Russia’s Mordovia Republic. The location of the new factory will be Saransk, which is the capital city of Mordovia. Nextrom will supply optical fiber and preform machines to this new factory in Russia. Mordovia is around 650 kilometers from Moscow.
