Optical fiber cable is a new generation of transmission media, compared with copper media, optical fiber security, reliability or network performance has been greatly improved. Optical fiber transmission bandwidth is much higher than the copper cable, and support the maximum distance of more than 2 kilometers. It has the advantages of good anti-electromagnetic interference, strong confidentiality, fast speed, large transmission capacity.
At present, there are two different types of optical fiber, namely Single-mode optical fiber and multimode optical fiber. Multimode optical fiber is generally used for network connections in the same office building or in areas with relatively close proximity. The single-mode optical fiber transmits data at higher quality, longer transmission distances and is often used to connect offices or geographically dispersed networks. If using optical fiber cable as network transmission medium, we also need to increase Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter and other equipment.
Optical fiber cable as the main transmission medium of optical fiber communication, we should pay attention to the quality of optical fiber cable, especially when ordering optical fiber cable, we should consider many factors comprehensively.
