OPTIC FIBER IN COMMUNICATIOIN MEDIA
The global requirement for advances in digital technology, communication and information increases by the day. Data traffic is growing at an explosive rate. Transmission speeds need to increase in line with these trends. This calls for high performance transmission media. The response has been the worldwide adoption of fiber-optic (FO) cables
Optical fiber technology has become an integral part of the networks of today. Internet access, client server applications, web hosting and data storage must be handled by the network. These need a customized system that allows maximizing the space and minimizing the time and money.
Fiber optics in security. The new generation intrusion detection system utilizes the unique qualities of optical fibers, lasers and high-speed computers to produce a highly effective, robust and reliable distributed sensor. Fiber optic sensing system has made it to be used in protection of pipelines fences. The system requires no power no electronics in the field to provide high fidelity detection of vibration and movement along the length of the fiber.
The cost of optical fiber technology continuing to decrease, many of today’s businesses are utilizing this technology in building distribution and/or workstation applications. Optical fiber’s inherent immunity to both electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio interference (RFI), and its relatively lightweight and enormous bandwidth capabilities make it ideal for voice, video and high speed
SOLUTIONS FOR FIBRE OPTIC NET WORKS
Comprehensive product range being used by traditional telecommunication companies and carriers worldwide:
• Closures for fiber optic cables: The closures of Cable Systems are universally deployable in pressurized and un-pressurized cable networks for inline, branching or terminating joints. They can be installed mid-span, or on the poles of aerial cable routes, in ducts or buried directly in the ground.
Fiber management systems enable the same closure to be used not only for fiber optic cable links but also for copper and management of architectures, such as backbone, branching and access networks,
• Fiber splicers
• Distribution systems for fiber optic cables the demands on fiber optic distribution in the various cable networks and architectures do not differ significantly from each other. The universal requirement is for reliability, easy servicing and modularity for future expansions and modifications in all LAN WAN Networks. Unwired Modules to full pre-wired are used according to design and requirement
• Fiber optic connectors Fiber-optic connectors form the interface between cable and transmission equipment and provide for termination and distribution in cable systems. Unlike fusion splices, fiber optic connectors offer a simple and effective method of connecting and reconnecting fibers. They comprise of two plugs that are joined together by an adapter.
Cabling is one network component which tolerates no compromise, it is a lifelong investment which requires extensive engineering & design to be laid out correctly to minimize interference, wire cluttering & reduce distances & costs. BTC Networks is dedicated to providing customers with the highest quality of work & an optimum use of resources when cabling their voice/data infrastructures. BTC networks employs several methods; In premises cabling it is possible to use both: balanced copper & fiber optic cabling and components as well as balanced copper cabling and components. The campus backbone employs only fiber optic cables and components.
The campus backbone cabling interconnects the individual buildings of a site. The center of this cabling subsystem is the campus distributor. For the campus backbone with its relatively long transmission links only fiber optic cabling is suitable. The campus backbone employs mainly single-mode-fiber cables that are outstanding for their low loss and high bandwidth. A further argument for fiber optic cables in this area is their electromagnetic immunity (EMI).
The connection between the building distributor and the various floor distributors is known as the building backbone and forms the vertical riser in the building. With bandwidth requirements increasing, it is advisable to use fiber optic cables in this area also for enhanced future proofing (usually multimode-fiber cables). However, shielded “high-end” copper data cables (bandwidths up to 1200 MHz can also be used in the building backbone for distances of up to 100 m.
The horizontal subsystem mainly employs balanced copper cables. The cabling is configured as a star radiating out from the floor distributor to the individual outlets. The distance here should, however, not exceed 90 m otherwise the cabling will not conform to the standards. A further option in the horizontal subsystem is “fiber-to-the-desk”, i.e. fiber optic cabling right up to the workplace. This is employed for very high bandwidth requirements or for long distances. A further advantage of fiber optic cabling in this application is once again its EMI immunity.
