How to Choose Fiber Optic Patch Cord Correctly during the Process of Construction?

Publish Time:2020,12,15

Fiber optic patch cord refers to the patch cord that connects the device to the optical fiber wiring link, which has connectors at both ends and a thicker protective layer, which is generally used for the connection between the optical transceiver and the terminal box, also, it is applied in some fields such as optical fiber communication system, optical fiber access network, optical fiber data transmission and local area network. In the actual optical fiber wiring environment, the installers on the construction site sometimes face the problem of how to choose fiber optic patch cord.


Here are some examples of how to choose fiber optic patch cord. If wiring in the environment of computer room and indoor inter-office, then choose ordinary indoor optical cable; If wiring in the environment of corridors, outdoor areas, and the optical cable needs a certain strength to prevent rats from biting, then select the spiral armored optical cable; In the case of FTTH and wiring in the environment of indoor vertical shaft, pipeline as well as outdoor short-distance overhead, then choose butterfly-shaped leather cable; If wiring is suspended at outdoor FTTA base station to connect the BBU and RRU terminal equipment, then choose to use the base station to extend the optical cable.


According to the light source of own active device, the transmission band and transmission rate in the link environment to select the appropriate fiber core, for example, if the wavelength band is 1310/1490/1550nm, single-mode 9/125um fiber can be used; if the wavelength band is 850nm and the transmission rate is gigabit, then use gigabit multi-mode fiber with OM1 62.5/125um or OM2 50/125um; if the wavelength band is 850nm and the transmission rate is 10 gigabit,choose the fiber with OM3-150, OM3-30, OM4-550 or OM5-550 according to the transmission distance.
