Causes of Mechanical Splice Termination Failures

FTTH (fiber to the home) has become increasingly popular in optical communication industry. Fiber optic termination, as one of the topics which have never been out of fashion in this field, has naturally become a focus of FTTH network deployment, especially the indoor termination. In FTTH network, mechanical splice connectors are usually used in FTTH […]

Drop Cable and Its Termination in FTTH

FTTH (fiber to the home) networks are installed in many areas covering indoor section, outdoor section, as well as the transition in between. To fulfill the cabling requirements from different areas, different types of fiber optic cables are well developed. Drop cable as an important part of FTTH network forms the final external link between […]

Upgrade to High Data Rate Transmission With Parallel Optics

Parallel optics represent a type of optical communication technology as well as the devices on either end of the link that transmit and receive information which are also known as parallel optical transceivers. Compared with traditional optical communication, parallel optical communication employs a different cabling structure for signal transmitting aiming at high-data transmission for short […]

The Ribbon Fiber Optic Cable Options for Local Area Networks and Data Centers

Background Local Area Network (LAN) campus and building backbones as well as Data Center backbones are migrating to higher cabled fiber counts to meet increasing system bandwidth needs. In many cases, Ribbon Fiber Cables are now being deployed to meet this need, as they provide the highest fiber density relative to cable size, maximize use […]
