Optical Fiber Cable

We are looking for information on below questions: cable types: • what are drop cables? What is the difference between drop and indoor cables? • what is the difference between normal drop cables and hardened connectors? • in case of hardened connectors, why is the cost per foot not similar, ? Is it because the connector is of fixed cost plus cost for the length of the cables? • how does multi-mode with less fiber count compare to single mode with high fiber count in terms of application, pros and cons and cost? • what's the use of armored cables apart from making cables detectable? Are there toned outdoor cables with single metal wire for detecting purposes like in the case of drop cables? • what is the need of fibres to be detectable (armored/toned) if they're laid in building duct systems? Cable laying: • why do drop optical fiber cables come in standard lengths? • how are optical cables connected? Can connectors be put on the field or they have to put in the factory at predetermined points? • what are the cost and time factors involved in connecting them in factory and on field. If can be put on field, what's the importance of fnap? • can two drop cables with connectors be connected on field? • can hardened drop cables be connected to normal drop cables on field? • can higher fiber count cables be split into separate lower count fibers? Is that cost effective? Where can those splitted cables be used? Cable life: • how frequently do cables need to be replaced? Are their in regulatory standards on the frequency?

5g Infrastructure

I am working with a company that is interested in knowing the current costing, rates, and generally acceptable pricing integrators propose to wireless carriers for build-outs. Expertise related to 5g is particularly desired. 1. Our interest is mainly pricing to carriers however large infrastructure contractors using sub-contractors is acceptable. What is your experience with either of these? 2. Our target market is u.S. And canada. Is your experience in these markets? 3. This project is well suited for someone with first hand knowledge proposing rfq/rfp’s to wireless carriers or with procurement experience of same. Do you have this experience? 4. What do these carriers most look for when awarding a bid (ex: experience, deployment speed, past relationship, certifications and insurance coverage, etc.)?

An optical fiber (or fibre) is a glass or plastic fiber that carries light along its length. Fiber optics is the overlap of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers. Optical fibers are widely used in fiber-optic communications, which permits transmission over longer distances and at higher data rates (a.k.a "bandwidth") than other forms of communications. Fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss, and they are also immune to electromagnetic interference. Fibers are also used for illumination, and are wrapped in bundles so they can be used to carry images, thus allowing viewing in tight spaces. Specially designed fibers are used for a variety of other applications, including sensors and fiber lasers. Light is kept in the "core" of the optical fiber by total internal reflection. This causes the fiber to act as a waveguide. Fibers which support many propagation paths or transverse modes are called multi-mode fibers (MMF). Fibers which can only support a single mode are called single-mode fibers (SMF). Multi-mode fibers generally have a larger core diameter, and are used for short-distance communication links and for applications where high power must be transmitted. Single-mode fibers are used for most communication links longer than 550 meters. Joining lengths of optical fiber is more complex than joining electrical wire or cable. The ends of the fibers must be carefully cleaved, and then spliced together either mechanically or by fusing them together with an electric arc. Special connectors are used to make removable connections.
