Optical Fiber types and features

Optical Fiber Cables

The technique that sends information as light pulses via a glass or plastic fiber is known as fiber optics, often known as optical fiber. Additionally, it is frequently utilised in telecommunications services like the internet, television, and telephones. For long-distance and high-performance data networking, fiber optics are utilized. In order to give customers Gigabit internet speeds, Verizon and Google, for instance, use fibre optics

Numerous cable varieties, such as indoor optical fiber cables and outdoor optical fiber cables, as well as several solutions, such as fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), MDAS (Meter Data Acquisition System), and data center solutions.

A fiber optic cable is a type of network cable that houses one or more optical fibers in an insulated casing wrapped in plastic layers and enclosed in a tube of protection.

Different cables are used for a variety of purposes, including data storage, defense, industrial/commercial use, telecommunication, and providing a network from servers to users.

As per Australian standards such AS/NZS 3080, AS/CA S-008, and AS 1049,
