Fiber optics uses pulses of light to transmit a signal through tiny “strands” of glass covered in a protective barrier. Because light is less susceptible to degrading factors fiber optics can be ideal for spanning long distances. Every fiber endpoint uses a strand(s) to transmit a signal and a strand(s) to receive a signal. In the case of 40 and 100 GB fiber multiple strands are used to both transmit and receive a signal. This is how 40 and 100 GB “throughput” is achieved with fiber optics.
Fiber Optics Terminations
There are two ways to terminate fiber optics: mechanically and fusion splice. Whichever is used the end goal is to Read more
