Overhead optical fiber cable systems have become a key factor in telecommunication networks used by operators and power utilities.
Driven by requirements for high-speed data rate, the deployment of fiber optic has been growing. As the growth of installed fiber optic, the management of optical transmission networks becomes more difficult. Many factors should be considered during fiber optic cabling, like flexibility, future viability, cost of the deployment and management, etc
As we know, in most cases, when a fiber is used or spliced, it is essential to prepare clean ends. Cleaving, an essential step of making fiber ends clean, though it’s a simple mean, but it works surprisingly well, at least for standard glass fibers. Thus, I want to share something about the cleaving in this post today.
Fiber optic technology is still underutilized, even though it represents the cutting edge in connectivity. Seeking Alpha, a technology market news source, reported that only 11% of Internet connections use fiber optics. Cloud computing is one area of opportunity for fiber optic connectivity.
SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) networks have undergone significant changes, and the technological developments have made fiber optic technology a viable solution for users looking to build a network.
Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture consists of several computers, connected through networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level supervision of machines and processes. SCADA system also covers sensors and other devices, such as programmable logic controllers, which interface with process plant or machinery.
Security and surveillance cameras are all around us. Look around and you will find them in virtually every place you go. Some common applications include:
