Fiber Optic Patch Cables
Complete range of 50/125 Multimode fiber optic cables - These fiber cables work in the same types of network deployments as 62.5/125 cables, and are also well suited for horizontal and intra-building deployments. Typically Multimode Fibre is used to transmit high speed data over shorter distances, usually within buildings. Multimode Fibre comes in various specifications, OM1 (62.5/125) & OM2 (50/125) are able to carry up to 10GB over short distance, the newer OM3 and OM4 fibre are designed to transmit up to 100GB over distances to 100 meters. More information OM3 and OM4 Fiber Optic Cable.
Cable Jacket - The outermost layer of the fiber cable.
Strengthening fibers - The strengthening fibers that help protect the core against damage during installation or from being crushed.
Coating - This layer of thicker plastic surrounds the cladding and helps protect the fiber core.
Cladding - The layer that protects the core and causes the necessary reflection to allow light to travel through the fiber-core segment.
Core - The physical component that transports the optical data signal, made up of a continuous strand of glass. The core's diameter is measured in microns.
