Optical Fiber Has Worked its Way in Telecommunications



Optical Fiber

Just to make you an idea what we work with

Due to their properties, safety and efficiency, optical fibers have turned into a much valued material for the telecommunications industry. Given the widespread projects in development throughout the country, it can rightly be named the technology of the year.


The Process of Data Transmission through Optical Fibers


Electrical information is encrypted into light pulses. Light pulses travel down a pipe made of glass or plastic. In the process, photons bounce off the walls of the pipe, without any risk of leaking out of the edges. The phenomenon of total internal reflection prevents the leakage from happening. The glass material acts like a mirror. Moreover, the optical fiber is made in such a way that light is kept inside, in its circuit along the pipe. Optical fibers are made of a main part, called the core, and an external layer, called the cladding. While the core has a higher refractive index, the cladding has a lower one.


Types and Structures of Optical Fibers


The process exposed in the above lines may vary, depending on the types of cable. And the fiber optics cables took their specific names from the types of path light pulses follow down the main pipe. In optical technology, these paths ale called modes. As a result, there are:


1. Single mode optical fibers - light pulses travel straight down the middle, without any bouncing off the edges. It is the simplest cable and it is usually employed for internet delivery, home phones and TV services. Single mode optical fibers can cover up to 100 km.


2. Multi mode optical fibers - data signals travel through the core by following a variety of different paths, or modes. Multi-mode cables can cover relatively short distances, being commonly used to link computer networks together.


Be it single mode or multi mode cables, the structures of optical fibers are similar. The core serving as channel for light pulses travelling is surrounded by cladding. Upon the cladding there is a plastic outer coating, protected by some strengthening fibers. All is wrapped up in an outer jacket.


Use of Optical Fiber in Providing Cutting-Edge Telecommunications Services


Now that some details related to the system structure and functioning have been exposed, let's dive deeper into the actual work. FiberOne is an expert in dealing with optical fibers and turning them into a great asset for telecommunications.


More precisely, we buy those cables and use them with skill, and mastery. Installations and networks building are our specialty. In the process, everything is under control and supervised responsibly. And all that work has been possible, and always follows high-quality standards, due to FiberOne team. A group of workers, that do the job in an irreproachable way, make the company be worth its name.


No matter the time, no matter the weather conditions, all the members in FiberOne's team work as experts. They keep an attentive eye on the good functioning of the systems already built. And they carefully put together the pieces needed for building new fiber optics systems.


Meanwhile, maintenance and troubleshooting are a permanent service, available 7/7, 24/24.
