Major Components of Fiber Optic System and their Functions

Installation of a fiber optic communication system is complicated and it is not simple as plugging a cord into an outlet. For a professional telecommunication engineer, the installation is not extremely difficult. If the components and their functions are known and identified, then the installation process would be easier. For this purpose, installation staff should know the major system components that are required in all fiber optic communication systems.

Chromatic Dispersion in Single mode Fibers

Dispersion limits the transmission distance in optical communications. In simple terms, the broadening of the pulse as it travels along the length of an optical fiber is called dispersion. In fiber-optic measurements, dispersion is often called Chromatic dispersion or short CD. Chromatic Dispersion is variation in the speed of propagation of a light signal with wavelength. Currently installed fiber-optic network spans are limited to around 80 to 100 kilometers that are penalized by dispersion.
