Latest company news about Fiber optic cable assemblies

Fiber optic cable assemblies consist of optical fibers, strength strands for support, and fiber optic connectors. A fiber optic cable is a cable that contains one or more optical fibers for the transmission of light. Fiber optic components are usually individually coated with a plastic layer and contained within a protective tube suitable for the cable deployment environment. In order for a signal to travel from one fiber optic cable to another, the fibers must be secured and properly aligned with the connecting cable fibers. The type of connector depends on the type of fiber and the intended function of the assembly. Some of the main types of connectors include ST, FC, LC, MT-RJ, SC, and MU connectors.

market drivers

The construction of 5G network will bring huge demand for fiber optic cables, which will bring huge benefits to the fiber optic cable assembly industry. Giving full play to the advantages of 5G's low latency and massive connections requires a strong fiber optic infrastructure.
