When a fiber optic cable is capped with connectors at both ends it is referred to as a fiber optic patch cord. The other popular name is “fiber optic jumper.” In technical terms, experts explain that there are two major parts of a fiber optic patch cords — optical connectors and fiber optic cables. Why Fiber Optic Patch Cords Modern Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks require high performance connectivity to transmit data over 100 kilometers. High performance connectivity means high input optical power (i.e. +27 dBm) and low return loss (i.e. ≥55 dB). If the cord connectors are of low…

Did you know that approximately 100 fiber optic connectors have been introduced in the worldwide market place, but only a few could survive? LC, SC, Biconic and Deutsch 1000 are the names of those successful connectors. According to The Fiber Optic Association, ‘Deutsch 1000’ was probably the first commercially successful fiber optic cable connector from the late 70s. Evolution of the Connectors’ Design When mentioning the word ‘Cable Connector’, an image of ‘male connectors with a ring or cap (typically a metal one)’ probably comes to mind. It is also known as ferrule design, which is quite useful because it…

Fiber Optic Patch Cable for Next-Generation Connectivity How can we get ultra-fast internet speeds? According to the publication website ‘Computerworld’; Japanese information and communications technology firm, NTT, is testing 400 Gbps internet speed[1] on a single wavelength. Average internet speed in Japan is now 42.2Mbps and it ranks 3rd in the world as per the ‘Bloomberg Business’ ranking[2]. Hong Kong is leading at 54.1Mbps, followed by South Korea at 48.4Mbps speed. Average internet speed in the USA and Australia is just over 30Mbps. However, the Minneapolis suburb of Minnetonka, USA provides 10 gigabit per second internet connectivity speed to its…

What transfers data faster, farther and in greater amounts than ever before? Optical fibers, of course. Thanks to these three reasons alone, businesses across varied industries are now using them as a backbone of their networks. For networks work best, much like the human body, when the backbone is strong and healthy. Optical fibers, however, provide more than the above listed benefits. Other benefits include: These wires have considerably higher bandwidth range as compared to conventional wiring systems. Therefore, it is ideal for growing companies who, in future, may need more bandwidth than what they are using at present. Optical…

Optical Fibers: An Effective Medium to Transfer Data When it comes to selecting a medium for transferring data, fiber optics is the preferred choice of most, if not all, companies across different industries. Why this is so is not hard to understand, for fiber optics offer many advantages over conventional metal wires. Here’s a look at some of the most important ones: Optical fibers are significantly more efficient than copper systems in transferring large amount of data. The reason being that these wires lose very insignificant amount of data as compared to copper wires. Also, the integrity of the signal…
