Fibre optic cables all have one common weakness: flexibility. The glass core and reflective cladding are essential to signal integrity, and accidentally twisting or bending the cable too much will force attenuation that can ruin your application with signal loss.
In a fibre optic system, there are several small devices and components, to which one might not give due credit and understand their importance.
Nowadays, many organizations are extending their Local Area Networks (LANs) to Metropolitan Area Network (MANs) to get uninterrupted, private access and control of their networks on several remote sites across the city from a central location.
The challenge faced by many IT managers today while selecting a new cable solution for datacentres, is to handle the compatibility of previous and current deployments while taking into consideration the trends and future requirements on the datacentre.
Have you ever encountered a situation where you want to just fuse a new optical fibre cable with an existing one, simply to make it longer or for the purposes of expanding your already existing fibre optic network?
The aim of modern IT-centric world is to target on having a firm grasp of prevailing cabling trends for flourishing technologies.
Dimension Data Philippines highlighted the need to step-up today’s datacentre to the next level because of recent emerging technologies in the field of IT including buzzwords like big data, software defined networks, security compliance, hybrid cloud, consumption model and virtualization.
Fusion splicing is a term that comes from the fibre optic communications industry. It refers to the process of joining, or splicing, two optical fibres end-to-end. The fibres are heated to the point that the ends soften and fuse together, thus giving the process its name.
