MTP/MPO Connector Cleaning: One-Click Cleaner vs. Cassette Cleaner

With data centers moving to 40G/100G, MPO fiber cables are extensively deployed. To ensure the reliable and efficient performance of the MPO cables, it is critical to clean the MPO connectors before mating to other equipment as contaminated connectors would lead to degraded performance and costly but preventable failures. There are two ways to clean […]

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 […]
