What You Need to Know About LC Connector Families?

Driven by the growing bandwidth requirement, data center designers have to install more and more fiber optic cables in a given space, which results in mess cable management and large maintenance cost. Thus finding an easy-to-manage and space-saving method for high-density cabling is becoming a hot issue for data center managers. LC to LC fiber cable, with its low interface…

Graded Index or Step Index Multimode Fiber

Fiber optic cable is the media of telecommunications infrastructure, enabling the transmission of high-speed voice, video, and data traffic in enterprise and service provider networks. We usually see single mode and multimode optic fibers available on the market with distinct specifications utilized in different network infrastructure. Compared with single mode fiber patch cables, multimode fiber has a larger core diameters,…

Guide to Fiber Optical Connectors

Fiber optical cable is the composite material, typically consists of a hair-thin glass used to transmit pulses of light instead of electrical signals. Thus the termination must be much more precise. Compared with copper cables end with RJ connectors, fiber optic connectors must align microscopic glass fibers perfectly to make metal to metal contact. There are many different types of…

End User’s Guide to Fiber Optics

Subscribers are often complaint about not finding any information about fiber optics aimed specifically at them. Because most materials about fiber optics is written to train optical technicians, people who have no experience in telecommunication can not understand these industry standards. So they have to ask an optical technician for help every time they met a problem or even a…

Introduction to Fiber Optic Pigtails

A smooth connection between cable and other optical devices allows the optical signals to pass with low attenuation and little return loss, which is vital for telecommunication network. Fiber optic pigtails, compared with the regular fiber jumper, is terminated with fiber optic connector at only one side of the cable, which are usually used with fiber optic management equipment like…
