How to Terminate Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber optic termination refers to a physical connection of fiber to a device, and you can use connector or splicing methods to terminate fiber optic cable. Fiber optic termination is a necessary step for installing a fiber optic network. It provides easy ways for fiber cross-connection and light wave signal distribution. When terminating fiber, termination […]

Bulk Fiber Optic Cable

Bulk fiber optic cable is a type of optic cable that contains multiple strands of fiber bundled in spools or reels for installation in various applications. This bulk cable can transport large amounts of data quickly and efficiently. So, they are ideal for a variety of applications, such as telecommunications, data centers, cloud computing, etc. […]

Fiber Color Code: Identify Optic Cable

Fiber Color Code is the color coding system used in fiber optic applications, which can help us identify fiber cables, connectors, and individual fibers. This fiber color coding system is the EIA/TIA-598 standard developed by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). The EIA has since been dropped and we now […]

Single Mode vs Multimode Fiber

Fiber optic cables include single mode and multimode fiber, single mode can only propagate one type of mode, and multimode can propagate multiple modes. Fiber optic cable comprises a core, cladding, and a buffer. The core is the central part of the fiber where the light travels. Single-mode fiber has a smaller core and only […]

Pre Terminated Fiber Optic Cable

Pre Terminated Fiber Optic Cable is a cable assembly with connectors pre-installed on both ends of the cables for connecting to other cables and devices. This premade cable gives installers more of a “plug-and-play” option. They are factory-terminated before shipment, increasing installation efficiency and reducing installation costs. These assemblies typically include fiber optic cables, connectors, […]

How Deep is Fiber Optic Cable Buried?

When installing underground fiber optic cables, how deep is fiber optic cable buried? The burial depth is generally 12 to 48 inches and at least 36 inches. This depth protects the cables from damage from digging or other activities. Fiber optic cable buried provides reliable faster data transmission over long distances. This cable is protected […]

Underground Fiber Optic Cable

Underground fiber optic cable is an outdoor optical cable laying underground, which can be installed in conduit pipes or buried directly into the ground. It is generally pulled within a conduit that is buried underground to reduce the possibility of being dug up. It is typically done between 36 and 48 inches underground. The minimum […]

Splicing Fiber Optic Cable

Splicing fiber optic cable is a new type of functional optical cable that joins two different optical cables together through mechanical or fusion splicing. This splicing fiber cable offers improved durability and minimal loss. Fiber splicing is often used when a fiber optic cable breaks unexpectedly or is extended. In addition, it can also join […]

Aerial Fiber Optic Cable

Aerial fiber optic cable is an insulated fiber optic cable erected on tower poles specially designed for outdoor aerial, air, and overhead applications. It is also called overhead or air fiber optic cable. Aerial cables are some of the most cost-effective methods of deployment. Operators can use existing poles to avoid digging up roads to […]

Direct Burial Fiber Optic Cable

Direct burial fiber optic cable is an underground fiber optic cable specially designed for direct buried installation with steel tape or wire armor outside. Direct burial is the most convenient way to lay optical cables. It saves the cost of pipeline and overhead installation. The cable is usually made of a plastic sheath and surrounded […]
