最基本的, an optical fiber is a glass thread, which can transmit messages modulated onto light waves. There are 2 main types of optical fibers, 单模光纤, 哪个只有一条路径, through a much smaller core, 和多模光纤, which has a large core 而且 allows for multiple paths through the fiber.
The Fiber is the Network™
OFS is a world-leader in the design 而且 manufacture of single-mode optical fiber for 应用程序 including transcontinental, 区域, 大都会, 家庭/企业访问, in-building fiber optic systems.
的OFS Single-mode 光纤 Selection Guide for terrestrial 应用程序 is a quick reference guide for a general underst而且ing of OFS single-mode fiber types 而且 应用程序. This guide describes several families of OFS fiber 而且 provides recommendations for 单模光纤 中使用的 厂房外(OSP) 还有 Indoor (前提, Enterprise) 应用程序.
Selecting the right fiber for your application can help lower system costs. Characteristics such as lower loss, 有效面积较大, 优化色散, tight bend performance can provide economic benefits compared to using a st而且ard G.652D单模光纤. Please contact OFS for a more thorough explanation of the various fiber value propositions to assist in the selection process.
