Fibre provides a reliable and versatile channel for data transmission and immunity to several environmental factors that can affect copper cable. The glass in fibre-optic cables acts as an insulator, preventing electric currents from flowing through it. Fibre permits installation alongside electrical and industrial equipment without concern of electromagnetic interference.
There are three core sizes of fibre cables: 62.5/125, 50/125, and 9/125. For each size, the first number represents the size of the fibre core (in microns) and the second number represents the size of the cladding, the inside layer around the core.
Multimode fibre has a larger-diameter core and supports multiple pathways, or modes of light. Several pathways of light are transmitted simultaneously through the fibre bouncing off the edge of the core. Multimode fibre is best suited for shorter-distance applications.
Singlemode fibre permits only one pathway to travel through the core. This allows data to travel greater distances than over multimode, up to 50 times more. Singlemode offers the best solution in situations where low signal loss and high data rates are required such as long-haul network applications and those spread out over campuses and greater distances.
Insertion loss, also known as optical loss refers to the amount of light that is lost from one end of the fibre-optic cable to the other. This can occur due to absorption or dispersion of the light within the cable. Measured in decibels (dBs) this loss can be tested with a fibre loss testing kit.
