Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber Optic Cable

The fiber optic cable is a networking cable that has strands of glass fibers within an insulated casing. Read More

They are specifically designed for long distance data transmission. The world’s internet is mostly supported by fiber optic cables. They have a higher bandwidth which makes it easy for it to transmit data over long distances.

Technology behind the functioning of fiber optic cables

The optics cable carry data signals using light pulses. These pulses of light are generated by using small lasers or light-emitting diodes. The fiber optic cable has various strands of glass which are slightly thicker than the human hair. The center of the strand which is also referred to as the core, acts as the medium for light to travel. Surrounding the core is a layer of glass which reflects light in wards to avoid loss of data signals.

Types of fiber optic cables

There are various categorize of fiber optic cables you might come across in the market. The most common are;

  • Loose Tube
  • Tight Buffered Cable
  • Ribbon Cable

    There are various types of fiber optic cables under this categorize which we might cover later on

    Advantages of fiber optic cable over other networking cable

  • They can transmit large amounts of data signals over long distances even continents
  • They are less prone to damage and interference when transmitting data
  • The fiber optic cable reduces the need for signal boosters since light can travel over long distances without losing its strength
  • It can be installed in various environments since it is resistant to most environmental hazards
  • It can operate in a wide range of temperatures and susceptible to interference


    Fiber optic cables can operate in various fields of data transmission including telephones, cable TV to ensure clear signals for HDTV’s, internet cables for high speed data transmission, telecommunication and others forms of data transmission.
