What is FTTH Fiber Optic Cable? What Kind of Structural Features Does it Have?

I. Introduction Of FTTH Networks

With the development of optical communication networks and the deepening of fiber optic access, FTTH network construction is growing exponentially.

At present, both China Telecom and China Netcom have indicated that they will invest huge amounts of money in the large-scale commercialization of FTTH.

From this series of circumstances, the focus of fiber optic communication network construction will shift to FTTH in the next few years.

The new generation of all-optical networks requires fiber optic cable as the optical signal transmission medium to provide both wider working bandwidth, higher transmission rate, longer transmission distance, and long service life, easy to install and maintain, etc.

Here, ZMS Cable Company introduces FTTH fiber optic cable for everyone.

II. Development Trend Of FTTH Fiber Optic Cable

With the continuous development of FTTH network construction, there will be more and more new varieties of fiber optic cables for the FTTH network. Fiber optic cables specially designed to adapt to the use of various special occasions will come into being. Introduction, branching, and convenient wiring will be the main considerations of the new structure of fiber optic cable. The compact structure of fiber optic cable, convenient branching, installation and wiring, and strong versatility will be the development trend of fiber optic cable for FTTH networks in the future. The realization of three networks in one multi-cable mix will gradually reduce.

As the application of fiber optic cable continues to expand, the fiber optic communication network continues to extend to the terminal, and the structure of fiber optic cable is also constantly improving. New varieties of fiber optic cables continue to launch, has been from the traditional structure of the form to the traditional structure of the main multi-bell structure as a supplement to the direction of transformation. But the change in fiber optic cable structure cannot be separated from the requirement of a suitable laying environment, easy construction and safety, reliability requirement, and cost reduction and resource-saving.

The development of FTTH has undoubtedly brought new opportunities for the updating and development of fiber optic cable technology. At the same time, it poses new challenges to traditional fiber optic cable technology. The current development trend of FTTH fiber optic cable is mainly reflected in the following aspects.

1. Diversification of Fiber Optic Cable Structure

From the perspective of the current fiber optic cable used in FTTH networks, it is the part with the most varieties of applied fiber optic cables. This part of the fiber optic cable needs to adapt to the dense branching of the network and diverse environmental conditions. Diversification of fiber optic cable structure is a major feature of the future development of FTTH fiber optic cable.

2. cable Structure Miniaturization

The miniaturization of fiber optic cable structure has been the trend of fiber optic cable development. The smaller the fiber optic cable structure, the fewer various materials used, the less space occupied by pipeline resources, the lower the cost of building the network, the more conventional construction and laying, and the more friendly to the environment. So whether from the user, engineering and manufacturing will promote the development of fiber optic cable structure in the direction of miniaturization.

3. Convenient and Reliable Branching

With the development of FTTH, the density of fiber optic cable branching is getting bigger and bigger. The traditional fiber optic cable branch cutting will bring endless hidden problems to the network. Tap point will become the most fault factor in the future network. To improve the reliability of the network and the convenience of maintenance, reducing the fiber optic cable connection points is the most effective way. Suitable for branching, reducing the splicing of fiber optic cable will increasingly receive network design, engineering construction, operation, and maintenance of the favor.

4. Convenient and Fast Wiring

In the FTTH network, the integrated indoor cabling will be more suitable for wiring convenient and fast fiber optic cable. Easy installation and convenient connection will be the main consideration for the design and application of fiber optic cable structures in the future.

III. FTTH Fiber Optic Cable Products Types

ZMS cable produces several typical FTTH fiber optic cables as follows.

1. FTTH Indoor Suspended Fiber Optic Cable (Skin Cable)

Suitable for indoor wiring use, with stable and reliable performance.

It is produced with small bending radius fiber and has excellent anti-bending performance.

Construction is safe and reliable, can be treated like copper cable, not easy to have construction failure.

No tools can be stripped fiber optic cable, fiber optic cable is easy to fix, low installation costs.

2. Self-supporting “8” Wiring Cable (Skin Cable)

Compact structure, soft, easy to build, easy to fix the fiber optic cable.

Suspension parts and fiber optic units in the home separation, fiber optic units directly into the home, eliminating indoor and outdoor fiber optic cable transfer.

No need to set up hanging wires and hooks when laying, high construction efficiency and low construction cost.

It is suitable for the overhead introduction of fiber optic cable for independent households.

The specific structure of the 2-core suspended introduction line fiber optic cable.

The product structure size is small to meet the needs of indoor and outdoor integration applications.

The ‘8’ type structure is very easy to tear and strip.

Mechanical and environmental performance can meet the application requirements.

It is mainly used for the connection between outdoor branch points (such as the splitting point outside the building, and the splitting box in the building) and the user terminal ONU.

3. Pipeline Mapping Fiber Optic Cable

Adopt full dry structure, easy to clean construction, and construction is safe and reliable, not easy to have construction failure.

I am using small bending radius fiber production, with excellent bending resistance.

The cable outdoor indoor dual-use can be matched with a variety of connectors, the cable can be field into the end.

4. Flexible Metal Tube Fiber Optic Cable

The fiber optic cable structure is set up in the metal hose, so that the fiber optic cable’s compressive, tensile, and bending performance is significantly improved, while anti-rat bite damage.

Bending flexibility, the minimum radius of curvature up to 10 times the diameter of the cable, can be used as easily as cable so that the deployment of works more easily.

Flame retardant.

The use of laying does not require an outer sheath protection tube, not only to save space for laying the cable groove but also to facilitate the laying of optical cables.

IV. Conclusion

In conclusion, the vigorous development of FTTH will strongly promote the development of the fiber optic cable industry, light into copper is an inevitable trend. And the arrival of the climax of FTTH network construction will be prepared to continuously develop new fiber optic cable products to adapt to a variety of market demands, to contribute to the development of China’s FTTH and technological progress.
