Fibre Optic Cabling
A fibre optic cable consists of a bunch of glass threads. Each of thread is less than a tenth as thick as a human hair and is capable of transmitting messages transformed into light waves. In addition, Fibre has many advantages over traditional metal cabling; fibre cables have a much greater bandwidth than metal cables.
There are two types; Single and Multimode.
Fibre optic cabling is extensively used in telecommunications due to its large bandwidth and superior range compared to copper wires.
NM Cabling offer a range of cabling installation solutions according to your needs, preference and budget.
Fibre Optic Cabling Installation
We can install OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 standard fibre optic cable in either internal or external environments. Fibre Optic Cabling 62.5/125 or 50/125 and can also either be Tight Buffered and Loose Tube Construction.
For single mode fibre optic cabling we can install your requirements in various applications internally and externally.
Fibre Optic Terminations
We provide fibre optic terminations for ST, SC, LC, and MTRJ applications. We can also provide patch leads to incorporate the various terminations.
Fibre to Desk (FTD)
To keep up with high speed data transfer, fibre optic to desk applications are now more popular. Consequently we use our extensive experience in office locations to install fibre optic in various situations including work desks, in false floors, false ceilings and partition walls.
Fibre Optic Fusion Splicing
We can offer the choice to splice your existing fibre optic cable to extend or relocate without the need to re-run the entire cable length. We therefore use Fusion splice machines at times to terminate new fibre optic cable installations to achieve minimal loss during terminating joints.
Testing – OTDR
We can test your existing cabling for faulty or suspected broken fibre optic cabling and find the exact point of failure along the cable enabling a corrective splice therefore removing the need for new cabling and disruption.
Out of Hours Fibre Optic Installations
We can offer Fibre optic surveys and installations any day of the week and at any time of day to suit the client’s needs, hence minimising disruption and down times.
6 Major Factors Affecting Cabling Performance
Fibre optic cable has an amazing bandwidth although it is often restricted by the hardware either side of the cable rather than the bandwidth of the cable itself. Speed and performance can be affected by the quality of installation of the Fibre Optic Cabling. See our blog – Some of the key factors affecting the performance of fibre optic installations
Selection of Multi Mode Fibre Optic
Choosing the correct fibre optic cabling will ensure that you get the best possible performance from your IT infrastructure. As a result the correct choice of fibre optic cabling maximizes the productivity and effectiveness of the workforce See our blog – Fibre Optic -Simplifying the Selection of Multi Mode
