A technology that uses glass (or plastic) threads (fibers) to transmit data. A fiber optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads, each of which is capable of transmitting messages modulated onto light waves
Fiber optics has several advantages over traditional metal-communications lines:
The main disadvantage of fiber optics is that the cables are expensive to install. In addition, they are more fragile than wire and are difficult to splice.
Fiber optics is a particularly popular technology for local-area networks. In addition, telephone companies are steadily replacing traditional telephone lines with fiber optic cables. In the future, almost all communications will employ fiber optics.
A Figure 8 construction of 2 single fiber cables. Use for Patch Cord application. ALANTEK Fiber Optic cables are compatible with all major connector types. Substitute YY=1.66mm or 3.0mm cable diameter.
For Colour Cordage, add ‘-ZZ’ to the end of the part number. Substitute ZZ with YL-Yellow, OR-Orange, BR-Brown, GN-Green, RD-Red, PK-Pink, PP-Purple, BU-Blue, WH-White, GY-Gray
