Bend Sensitive and insensitive cables

How Far Can You Bend Your Fiber?

We know that stress and overstrain is a major enemy of the fiber’s lifespan, so cable installers must ensure that during the installation, fiber cables would not suffer from undesirable stretching or bending. Pulling, pushing and blowing are the three techniques used in wire management, which usually cause minor installation strains even for a seasoned installer. It is unavoidable, but…

The Benefit and Challenge of Patch Panel

Patch panel is undoubtedly an essential component in cabling systems as it provide a simple, neat and easy-to-manage solution. For example, if you want to wire a network system that includes multiple wall ports, patch panels will not only allow you to terminate cable elements, but the signal to be connected to the final destination. No matter how big or…

Introduction to Several Cable Types

Fiber optic cable usually works as the bridge of two devices for both new cabling installations and upgrades, including backbone, horizontal, and even desktop applications. This is how it works, the conventional electrical data signals are converted into a modulated light beam, then transported via a very small diameter glass or plastic fiber to a receiver that converts the light…

Understanding Industrial Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber optic cabling usually utilizes ruggedized jackets to ensure optimal performance in the face of extreme temperatures; exposure to UV/sunlight, oil, and solvents; and crushing impact, which makes it the ideal solution in any industrial environment where high-speed, high-bandwidth data solutions are needed. It can be used for campus and in-building data backbones to anchor an operation’s Ethernet, and also…

The basics of Ethernet

In today’s telecom field, Ethernet has been utilized at various levels of the control hierarchy. Since the standardization in 1980, Ethernet has become the most widely installed local area network (LAN) technology either in the office or the enterprise network for the high-end controller. We talk about Ethernet every day, however, people without decades of experience can hardly say they…

Considerations About Fiber Optic Cable Installation

It’s true that fiber optic cable, based on optical technology to carry information between two points, have become increasingly important in fiber optic systems. This cable is often attached with the same or different connectors on the ends to connect devices, for example, LC LC multimode patch cord (LCs on both ends). When used in premises, fiber optic cables can…
