Singlemode fiber glass has a much smaller core that allows only one mode of light to propagate through the core. Singlemode fiber has a higher bandwidth and less loss than Multi-mode fiber and for this reason it is the ideal transmission medium for many applications. The standard Singlemode fiber core is approximately um in diameter.
Because of its greater information-carrying capacity, Singlemode fiber is typically used for longer distances and higher-bandwidth applications. While is might appear that Multi-mode fibers have higher information carrying capacity, this is not the case. Singlemode fibers retain the integrity of each light pulse over longer distances which allows more information to be transmitted.
This is why Multi-mode fibers are used for shorter distances.
POF-or Plastic Optical Fiber-is a newer plastic-based cable which promises performance similar to Singlemode Cable, but at a lower cost. POF is still in the infancy stage although many companies are noticing its potential. Take for example, your basic telephone conversation. In the fiber optic telecommunication system, a message is sent from one end through an electric cable to an encoder which transmits a signal through a glass fiber optic cable.
It then travels through a repeater, back through the cable, into a decoder and through an electric cable into the phone line on the other end. The sound waves that your voice generates becomes wave of electricity in the mouthpiece of your telephone. Rather than electricity flowing through copper wire to your destination, fiber optics allows electricity to pass through the encoder which measures the waves of electricity times each second.
Receiving the digitized message is the decoder. This device converts the laser light back into electrical waves. These electrical waves are changed into the sound that we hear through the phone. This same process not only works for the telephone, but also other sources that transmit data i. Pickup not available. About This Item We aim to show you accurate product information.
