Fiber Cable

What are the different fiber cable types?

To meet the increasing demand for fast and efficient connectivity and data transmissions, fiber optical manufacturers continue to invest and explore the creation of fiber cable types that are of high quality and at least more cost-effective than traditional copper cables.

To meet the increasing demand for fast and efficient connectivity and data transmissions, fiber optical manufacturers continue to invest and explore the creation of fiber cable types that are of high quality and at least more cost-effective than traditional copper cables.

This surge in demand has seen the emergence of different fiber cable types which can be classified into different categories depending on the following classifications.

Fiber optic cables are classified according to the propagation mode of light.

Single-Mode Fiber: Used for long-distance signal transmission.

Multi mode Fiber: Used for short-distance signal transmission

Other classifications can be according to the refractive index, i.e. fiber optic cables into step index fibers and graded index fibers, or on the basis of material, i.e. fiber optic cables into plastic or glass fibers.

What are the uses for the different fiber cable types?

The single mode fiber cable types are used for long-distance transmission

Multi mode fiber cables are used for short-distance transmissions since they have the light-gathering ability and simplify connections.

Transmission modes and diameters of single mode and multi mode fibers?

1. Single-mode fiber optic cable allows the transmission of a single light mode, while multimode fiber allows the transmission of multiple light modes.

2. The diameter of single-mode fiber is 9 µm, while the diameter of multimode fiber is 50 µm and 62.5 µm.
