Knowing Mode Conditioning Fiber Patch Cable

What is Mode Conditioning Patch Cable and Why Need It? Fiber Optic Mode Conditioning Patch Cable(MCP) is one duplex multimode fiber patch cord, which have one short length of single mode fiber at the start of the transmission end. Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) requires a laser light source instead of an LED source to power the […]

What is the difference between Category 8 cabling system and previous twisted-pair cabling systems?

Since Category 5e was introduced in 1999, one of the constants in structured cabling has been the 100-meter, 4-connector channel. As data rates have increased, one of the primary differences between category systems is the frequency at which the signal is transmitted over the cable. Category 7/7A offers a 100-meter 4-connector channel using shielded cabling, […]

Maintaining Proper Polarity For MTP / MPO Fiber Links

What is polarity? Polarity is refer to the matching of the transmit signal (Tx) to the receive equipment (Rx) at both ends of the fiber optic link, and its simple object is to provide transmit-to-receive connections across the entire fiber connectivity system in a consistent, standards-based manner. IA/EIA 568-b-1-7 defines 3 standard methods for maintaining polarity within […]

New Standard for Calibration of Fiber Optic Power Meters

Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is and international organization developing standards for the information and communications technology industry. Recently TIA released a new document, TIA-455-231, FOTP-231 IEC 61315 – Calibration of Fibre-Optic Power Meters. This new international standard TIA-455-231 is applicable to instruments measuring radiant power emitted from sources which are typical for the fiber-optic communications industry. It […]

What is FTTx?

Fiber to the x (FTTX) is a generic term for any broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications. As fiber optic cables are able to carry much more data than copper cables, especially over long distances, copper telephone networks built in the […]
