Optical Fiber

An optical fiber is a flexible fiber made of silica or plastic, used to carry data through light transmissions. The technology concerned with application of optical fiber is called fiber optics. This was termed by Indian-American physicist, Narinder Singh Kapany. Fiber optic cables, having diameter as skinny as human hair, are the medium for transmitting light signals from one point to another. Fiber optic cables are the preferred mode of data transmission currently, over earlier used metal wires. The advantages beingnegligent electromagnetic interference and long-distance data transmission without loss. Read More..

STL, a leading player in optical fiber technology, brings a series of optical fiber products in USA, with bend insensitive fiber. In a connected world where next generation networking is important, STL emphasizes the importance of world class optical fiber deployments. STL’s optic fiber solutions cater to a wide range of applications:

  • StellarTM Series: StellarTM the installer’s fiber is the world’s 1st G.657.A2 macro-bend insensitive fiber. This fiberis legacy networks compatible consisting of G.657.A1 and G.652D. StellarTM Fiberis used in many sections of a data communication network –be it core, metro and/oraccess.
  • BOW-LITETM Series :STL's BOW-LITETM series optical fiberproducts are industry leading bend insensitive single mode fibers, suitable for FTTx applications and high fiber density cables.
  • OH-LITE® Series: STL offers different varieties of G.657.A1 and G.652.D type optical fiber which take into consideration enhanced attenuation, geometry, dispersion and macro-bend loss properties. This enables better performance in wide application areas like long haul, metro-city, access and CATV networks.
  • DOF-LITETM Series :This series of Non-Zero dispersion shifted single mode optical fibercomplying with ITU-T G.655 recommendations, is mostly suitable for long-haul and metropolitan networks. DOF-LITE (LEA) is suited for long-haul, and DOF-LITE (METRO) is meant for metro network.

Let us understand more about Optical Fibers:

What are types of Optical Fibers?

Fiberare of two types– Single mode and multimode fiber. The 2 types are used for different purposes. Let us look at single mode vs multimode fiber:

Single mode fiber has a small core (9 microns approximately) and the light travels straight down the fiber. It has lower loss and infinite bandwidth. It is used for telephone calls, internet and CATV mostly.This is used for long distance transmission of signals.

The multimode fiber has a larger core (50-62 microns) and the light rays follow multiple paths travelling within the core. It is used for LED sources and for slower local area networks and interconnecting computer networks. This is used for short distance transmission of signals.

How do fiber optics work?

Optical fiber carry light rays to transmit data and is based on principle of total reflection. The light signal is directed at one end of the fiber, it undergoes internal reflections along the length of the fiber and with no loss in the light signals, it finally comes out at the other end. Light travels down the core of the optic fiber cable. Core is the centre layer of the cable. Cladding is the outer layer of the core. Cladding helps keep the light inside the core.

Uses of optical fibers:

Fiber optic cables have become the foundation of the way we communicate now. Thousands of miles of fiber optic cables laid underground, in building walls, in the sea bed, in tunnels carry most of the data information. Optical fiber uses include computer networking, defence, broadcasting, medical scanning and research, home networking (through FTTx), mechanical inspection of inaccessible areas.

Fiber optics usage in the US

With all the advantages of optical fiber, it is no surprise that fiber optics is becoming very popular. Fiber is the fastest home internet option so far, but availability is still scattered. Here is a look at the Fiber optics to the home (FTTH) usage in the US. The data is as of early 2020 and the source is https://broadbandnow.com/Fiber
