FIBER OPTIC PRODUCTS

 

FIBER OPTICS
Fiber optic cable consists of thin glass filaments that transmit lightwaves carrying very large amounts of
data for very long distances. Since signals are transmitted with the use of light waves, electromagnetic
and radio frequency interference (EMI / RFI) is nonexistent. Lightning and high voltage interference is
also eliminated. A fiber network is best for conditions where EMI / RFI interference is heavy or where
safe operation free from sparks and static is a must. Fiber optic cable also offers added security because
transmissions are safe from electronic eaves-dropping.

WHY DO I NEED IT?
If you're planning a new network or adding to an
existing one, fiber optic is an ideal choice! Fiber
optic cable is a so great because it carries a very
large amount of data for very long distances in a
small package. If you install fiber now you won't
need to reinstall some other media in the future
because fiber is the cable of the future.

Fiber optic cabling also offers a higher signal
bandwidth and very low attenuation rates. That
means increased transmission capacity and fewer
repeater, making it a great choice for broadcast
and telecommunications use.

WHERE DO I NEED IT?
1) Point to point applications like:
a) Local area network bridging
b) CAD/CAM
c) Video
d) Modems
e) Computer channel extenders
f) Voice/ data multiplexers
2) Local area network applications
3) Broadcast & Telecommunications
4) Static-Free Environments
5) Military applications

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
So you've decided to go with a fiber optic network. Great! You are going to need certain things to get started. The following list should help you dive into the brand new world of fiber optic networking.

1.) The cable length. You'll need to get an estimate of how much cable you'll be using. Don't forget to add for
slack, future considerations and murphy's law.
2.) Figure out what kind of cable you'll need. The cable type (aerial,burial or interbuilding) and its construction
(i.e. simplex, duplex, etc.).
3.) Find out your cable specs. We'll need to know the fiber core/clad size (i.e. 62.5/125mm) (see fiber optic bulk
cable or outdoor bulk cable) and the fiber count (i.e. 4count).
4.) We will connectorize the cable ends for you so we'll also need to know the connector type (i.e. ST, SMA,
etc.) (see fiber optic connectors.)
5.) Keeping your cable ends in order is easy with an Enclosed Patch Panel (see fiber optic hardware.) If you
order your Mating Sleeves (see fiber optic mating sleeves) with us we will install them free of charge.
6.) Determine how many Patch Cords you'll need and how long they need to be.
