Everything You Need to Know About Fiber Optics 


In the recent years, fiber optics is steadily replacing copper wires. It is a

better and apt means of transmitting communication signals. Today,

fiber optics cable span across long distances between local phone

systems. In addition, it also serves as the backbone for many

networking systems including:

● Cable TV services

● University campus

● Office buildings

● Industrial plants

● Electric utility companies

● Internet connectivity

● Stereo systems

● Telephone systems

Fiber Optics Cable use pulses of light to transfer data using the event of

total internal reflection. The cable has a coating of plastic. This protects

the cable from exposure to heat, cold, and other weather atrocities. It

also protects the cable from electromagnetic interference and

ultraviolet rays of sun. These cables are the most reliable and fastest

data transfer cables on the planet.

A ​fiber optics cable system is very similar to the metal wire system. The

fiber optics is replacing the metal and copper wire system. The basic

difference is that fiber optics uses light to transmit data; whereas metal

wires do not. It sends the data down the fiber lines instead of using

electronic pulses for transmitting data like in the metal wires.

fiber optics cables serve the purpose

Fiber Optics Cables serve the purpose of connecting and transferring

data across continents. They are fast and they can carry large capacity.

The signals have higher strength and need least maintenance.

Types Of Fiber Optics Cables

There are three types of fiber optic cable commonly in use. They are

single mode, multimode, and plastic optical fiber or photonic fiber.

Transparent glass or plastic fiber allows the guiding of light from one

end to the other with minimal loss is the most efficient.

Single Mode

In a ​single mode fiber​, the core diameter

reduces to few wavelengths of the incoming

light. For a beam with 0.55 μm of wavelength,

the core diameter must be of the order of 4.5


Under this situation, the core is so small that only the primary mode

can travel inside the fiber. Given the wave broadcast of the light inside

the cavity, there is no other way for the light to take longer optical

In this fiber, the core diameter is

much greater than the wavelength


the transmitted light. The

transmission of number of modes

is simultaneous is ​multimode​. The


ways in which, light

travels inside the fiber is relative

to the fiber modes. The primary

mode travels parallel to the axis of

the fiber. Therefore, it takes the

minimum time to reach the end of

the fiber.

When an incoming beam enters with an angle relative to the fiber axis,

the light follows a longer path. Thus, it takes a little longer to reach the

end. When you increase the core diameter, you can increase the

transmission of number of modes.

Photonic Fibers

In photonic fibers, the number of cavities around the core guides the

transmission of light. The core may be present in a glass or even an air

cavity! These are new fiber optic cables available in the market. For the

moment, their performances are still under the observation for

astronomical applications.

Fiber Optics Cable Connectors

Fiber optics cable connectors make flexible connections possible. Fiber

optics cable connectors are generally in use where flexibility is in need.

Fiber optics cable connectors are also a necessity at termination points

when an optical signal routes.

Polish And Epoxy Connectors

Polish and Epoxy style connectors were originally in use for

termination. These are still under very high rate of extensive

installation. These connectors offer a wide range of choices including

SC, ST, LC, FC, SMA, D4, MT-RJ, and MU. Some of their advantages are

present in the list below:

Sturdiness - skill to bear higher levels of environmental and mechanical


Cable size​​ - Usability with cables of varying diameters, from big to small

Multiple Connectors - Can handle single and multiple cables (up to 24)

in a single connector

Polish And No-Epoxy Or Pre-Loaded Epoxy Connectors

The main advantage of these connectors is that they are easy to install.

This translates to lower skill levels in need to handle them. These

connectors can have further division as follows:

connectors without epoxy connectors with

● Connectors without epoxy

● Connectors with preloaded epoxy

● The fiber has stabilization by an internal crimp mechanism and

these connectors are available in SC, ST, and FC styles.

No Polish And No-Epoxy

Simple design and low cost are the hallmarks of these connectors. The

result of training and installation is a higher cost reduction. Moreover,

this also enables fast restorations. They are available in SC, ST, LC, FC,

and MT-RJ connector styles.

Numerous connectors, both standard and proprietary, are in use in the

field of telecommunication equipment, data lines, television, cable, and

other industrial fields. The connectors described in this text are the

ones that are under extensive use in the past. Many are still under use

this very day.
