Cleaved optical fiber end-faces

Introduction of Fiber Optic Cleaving

As we know, in most cases, when a fiber is used or spliced, it is essential to prepare clean ends. Cleaving, an essential step of making fiber ends clean, though it’s a simple mean, it works surprisingly well, at least for standard glass fibers. Thus, I want to share something about the cleaving in this post today. Understanding of Cleaving…

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…

M-Net use DWDM solution to deliver 500Gbps over a single wavelength

Passive CWDM VS DWDM – Which to choose?

With current industry advancements trend that has equalized costs of transceivers, in a technical battle of CWDM vs DWDM, more advancements are in DWDM. Let’s compare passive CWDM vs DWDM from pure technical application viewpoint: CWDM vs DWDM – Channel Uniformity: As CWDM spectrum for 18 channels spans from 1260nm up to 1620nm compared to DWDM C-band 1530 – 1565…
