Fiber Optic Cleaners

As cleanliness of the interfaces in fiber optic networks can directly affect the transmission quality, fiber optic cleaning is a must-have process during fiber optic network installation, testing and maintenance. You should always keep it in mind. You need to clean the fiber optic interface on the test equipment and fiber optic connectors before you […]

WDM Multiplexer

WDM Multiplexer is a device that uses Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology to combine different optical wavelengths from two or more optical fibers into just one optical fiber. This combining or coupling of the wavelengths can be very useful in increasing the bandwidth of a fiber optic system. WDM multiplexers are used in pairs: one […]

What Is Fiber Optic Sensors?

Over the past decades, fiber optic technology has revolutionized the telecommunications industry, enabling high-capacity, long-distance communications and networking at staggeringly low costs. Fiber optics have also played important roles in numerous other applications: They have been used to deliver light for precision marking and cutting; as a practical, high-power, high-coherence laser source; for imaging systems; […]

Optical Multiplexing for High Speed Communication Systems

Optical transmission uses pulses of light to transmit information from one place to another through an optical fiber. The light is converted to electromagnetic carrier wave, which is modulated to carry information as the light propagates from one end to another. The development of optical fiber has revolutionized the telecommunications industry. Optical fiber has replaced […]

CWDM & DWDM Mux/Demux Overview

 As we all know, WDM (wavelength-division multiplexing) is a method of multiplexing a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (colors) of laser light. It enables bidirectional communications over one strand of fiber, as well as multiplication of capacity. In a WDM system, a multiplexer (Mux) is used […]

What Is MPO Connector?

Introduced several years ago, MPO connectors are now widely used around the world. They are designed to reduce the amount of time required for fusion splicing individual connectors. Combining lots of fibers in one connector, the MPO connector not only greatly reduces the time of connecting fibers, but also saves a lot of space. This […]
