Fiber optic glass cabling
Looking for fibre fibreglass?
In today's world, it is almost a prerequisite that everything is fast, powerful and compact. Nowadays, Internet cabling is often used to establish a network connection. However, all signs point to high-performance fiber optic cables that will replace these cables in the future..
A fiberglass cable consists of multiple fibres the size of a human hair. These fibres are put together in a cable sleeve.
How do fibreglass cables work?
Fibreglass is able to transmit data lightning fast over short or long distances. The light signals of a laser are controlled by each fiber. These light signals are not constantly switched on, but are activated and deactivated very quickly one after the other. The light signals can be switched on and off separately for each fiber at different speeds.
The activation of different light signals and speeds together ensure data transmission. The faster the light is switched on and off, the faster the cable can transmit data. The maximum speed at which the various light signals can be switched on and off depends on the type of cable.
Single- or multimode
Singlemode cables are suitable for longer distances and faster data transmission. Singlemode cables are currently by far the fastest cable form. This type of cable has a smaller core in which the light signal enters immediately and data can be transmitted at speeds of more than 1000 GB per second.
Multimode cables are designed for shorter distances with higher bandwidth, but the transmission speed is lower than with singlemode cables. Unlike singlemode cables, multimode cables can transmit light signals via LEDs instead of lasers. This ensures cheaper cables and equipment.
