Buying fiber optic cables - purpose and features

Probalby you will buy fiber optic cables to establish fast data connections over long distances.

To underline the quality and functionality, you will also receive measurement protocols when you buy fiber optic cables. This allows you to create reliable connections within a fiber optic network.

Although copper cables are often used for these connections, it is safer to buy fiber optic cables because they are less sensitive to external influences. Whereas copper cables on the contrary need to be protected by additional shielding.

Buying fiber optic cables - singlemode or multimode

From us you can buy both types of fiber optic cables - singlemode and multimode:

  • Singlemode fiber optic cables only have a small fiber optic core. Therefore they are preferably used for long distances from approx. 550m upwards. The fiber type used here is OS2. OS2 mainly for the higher power ranges.
  • Multimode fiber optic cables have a larger fiber core and a higher light dispersion, therefore they can only be used for short distances below 550m due to signal degradation. There is a choice of 5 fiber types OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 and OM5. However, the latter are only standardised in the USA, so OM4 is mainly used in Germany. However, Fiber24 also supplies OM5 for use in germany.

Frequently asked questions

Two points in particular should be emphasised here: the bending radius and the installation depth. The bending radius results from the cable diameter (without tensile load). When laying the cable, make sure that it is only about 10 times the cable diameter. When laying the cable, it should be buried at a depth of at least 60 cm in the conduit in order to protect the cable well from the weather.

Singlemode fiber optic cables are particularly suitable for data/signal transmission over longer distances. This means that data can even be transmitted over 100 km without any problems. Therefore, singlemode fiber optic cable is ideal for setting up Wide Area Network (WAN) applications.

Unlike single mode fiber optic cables, multimode fibres are ideal for bridging short distances and implementing facilities within a company or on a company premises. They are used in LAN environments where a lot of data needs to be transmitted over short distances. They are ideal for database or NAS applications.
