In today’s connected world, effective transmission of data is very important. Fibres have been the medium of data communication. Earlier it was metallic wires and in the recent times it is optical fibre. Read More..
An optical fibre is the medium that sends light signals down fibres. These light signals are able to carry tremendous amount of data without much loss to quality. The technology concerned with application of optical fibre is called fibre optics. The optical fibre are hair thin strands of fibre made of pure glass or plastic. The light is passed through the centre of the fibre, which is called the core. Cladding, which is an outer encasement to the core helps keep the light trapped in the core, using a technique called total internal reflection.
Optical fibres have mostly replaced copper wire communication in the UK. The advantages of optical fibre:
STL are leaders in fibre optic technology. STL Tech brings a series of optical fibre products in UK, with bend insensitive fibre. STL’s optic fibre solutions cater to a wide range of applications:
Optical fibre isprimarily of two types– Single mode and multimode fibre. Here’s an over view of single mode vs multimode fibre:
Single mode fibre has
The multimode fibre has
When data has to be transmitted through a fibre, it starts as electrical energy, converts into photons or light rays, travelling in waves through inner core of the fibre. The core of the optical fibrecarry the light rays to transmit data through principle of total internal reflection. The photons (light particles) bob up and down the fibre core. An outer layer, called the cladding keeps the light in the core secure, without letting it escape. When the light particles reach the other-end an optical receiver decodes and converts it back to electrical energy, which then the receiving device is able to read and display as data for the user.
Wireless communications and cloud computing are gaining importance, however, presently the majority of data in voice and video signals are still transmitted through optical fibrenetwork. According to various reports,
STL has been contributing in the fibre optics space, getting series of optical fibre products through innovative measures, to its users. STL Opticonn, the Optical Connectivity Solution is constructed to allow telecom operators, ISPs, citizen networks and large organizations to roll out networks faster, better and cost efficiently. The solution offers end-to-end capability ranging from optical fibre products, pre-connectorized kits to post-sales support. The optical products offered by STL include:
To build exceptional optical fibre, STL employs its core strengths and carefully orchestrates the following:
