Cost Comparison : Single-mode Vs. Multimode Fiber Optics

There is a long-term debate between single-mode and multimode optics. From the data rate, link distance, and costs, people usually will calculate every single difference between them. However, this article will not talk about technical distinctions because you can find related information everywhere. Cost, as one of the important factors, is sometimes the deciding point by many data center operators….

Comparison Between Different Types of Optical Fibers

Nowadays more and more fiber-based networks have been built in the backbone and risers environment. Both multimode and single-mode fibers are available for the applications. But different fiber types have briefly different limitations for speed and maximum distance. These characteristics they possess and the way cause the fiber to operate determine the application to which a given fiber is most…

Do You Know How Fast Your Fiber Optic Internet Can Be?

The technology is continually evolving along with the demand for consistent, seamless delivery and accessibility to internet and content-loaded application. From the old 56 kbps crawl of dial-up to the early 1 Mbps copper connections and all the way to the existing popular 1 Gbqs, 10 Gbqs/40 Gbqs fiber optic connections, we’ve gone through a drastic improvement to maintain a…

The Truth About OS1 and OS2 Optical Fiber

Several years ago, OS1 fiber optic cable was the only one standard for single-mode fiber with the maximum link length for campus cabling around 10km, but 10km can no longer satisfy people’s increasing needs nowadays. Therefore, OS2 fiber that can support much longer distance than 10km has been widely utilized in the telecommunication industry. But there has been some debate…
