Common Questions

When would a fiber optic cable be used in place of a copper cable for communications?
The use of optical fibers for certain communications applications is dictated by the amount of information being sent and the distance between sending and receiving points. When high volumes of telephone voice circuits are to be supported, SMF is specified. For moderate data transmission and distances, MMF is used. For moderate bandwidth and shorter distances (less than 300ft), copper is typically used.
May I mix fibers with a core diameter of 62.5 μm and 50 within a system?
While technically feasible, mixing 50 µm and 62.5 μm fibers is not recommended. Industry standards typically require uniform fiber types in each link, including patch cords and jumpers. In addition, linking 50 µm and 62.5 μm fibers typically results in higher coupling losses.
