Fibre Cables

Fibre cables consist of the following parts:

  • Core - The thin, optically-pure glass center of the fibre where the light signals are transmitted.
  • Cladding - The material that surrounds the core. The cladding traps light in core and protects against signal loss.
  • Buffer coating - The protective coating applied directly to the fibre.

Fibre cables offer many advantages over traditional copper cables. These advantages include lighter weight, small diameter, higher bandwidth, use less power, non-flammable, EMI and RFI immunity, better suited for data transmission, and provide less signal degradation.
