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…

Fiber Optics: History and Advantages

You may know that the simplest form of fiber optics is a medium used for carrying information from one point to another in the form of light. It consists of a transmitting device, which generates the light signal, fiber optic cables (eg. LC to SC cable) that serve as a conduit for pulses of light to travel over distances, and…

Comparison Among Twisted Pair, Co-axial Cable and Fiber Optics

In communication systems, massive bundles of wires and cables are used to transport data between servers and other equipment. These cables can be twisted pair cables, co-axial cables and fiber optic cables. Since all these three types can be applied to network communications, it’s essential to determine which cable type is the best for the reliable and efficient data transfer,…
