Best Optical Fiber Cable: Connecting Networks with Lightning-Fast Speed!

best optical fiber cable

Optical fibers are used to transmit digital data. These cables transfer data by transmitting light signals through optically pure glass or plastic fiber and thus offer a blazing speed of data transmission. Each optical fiber is as thin as a human hair. These thin fibers are arranged in core bundles known as optical cables. The core is surrounded by a cladding that reflects the light back into the core and the light is transmitted through this core.

While buying good optical audio cables, it is important to check the quality of the protective sheathing of the cable. As the optic fiber is very thin and fragile, it is more prone to damage, if the cable is not handled with caution. A considerably thick sheathing is recommended while purchasing optic fiber cables.

The next major consideration is the Alesis Digital Audio Tape (ADAT) Optical Interface also known as the ADAT Lightpipe, a standard measure of audio transfer capability.

Always opt for the cables that can be linked in seconds,  while offering solid connections.An appropriate choice will consist of metallic ends and will be covered by plugs on the ends to prevent dust and dirt. Other factors such as  cost, flexibility, brand reputation, compatibility with audio devices, etc. must also be taken into account.

The best optical cables offer you an easy connection to various media components.The new models consist of a PVC jacket which prevents damage to the inner part from dust , dirt and other foreign elements.

 Now experience better quality home entertainment with optic fibre cables by connecting to a compatible media tool such as Home Theatre, DVD player, Blu-Ray, and much more.

This article is focused on the best optical fibre cables available online.

Fibre Optic Cable Buying Guide

Every fiber optic cable offers the same sound quality to provide you with an immersive experience while gaming, watching movies, and much more.

If you want to buy the best available fibre optic cable , you must consider the following factors:-

What type of Fibre Optic Cable do you need?

You can buy fibre optic cable either in a singlemode or multimode design. The basic difference is how the light beam travels inside the cord, which depends on the core size and the distance up to which signals can be carried. Therefore, you must buy the one which suits your requirement.

It must be noted that both the modes are different and are not compatible with each other. Therefore, it is not recommended to mix different sizes or types of cables as this will lead to signal degradation and distortions.

Single Mode Fibre Cables:

This type of cable allows limited use and is dependent on the hardware used inside. Single Mode fibre optic cable is used  specifically for  covering significant distances with high bandwidth,

Multimode Fibre Cables:

This type of fibre comes in different OM (Optical Mode) designations, ranging from OM 1, OM 2, and OM 3 . Each of these provide a different bandwidth and distance. Multimode optic fibre cable is  generally used in case of communication over short to mid range distances. 

Some other special features of optical fiber cables must be noted while making a purchase:-

The Fibre Count: Since, each type of fibre optic cable holds a different bandwidth, which basically depends on the number of counts, you must consider this factor while buying optical fibre cables. The more fibres present, the more bandwidth you get. Therefore, if you need additional bandwidth, you should pick a cable with the most fibre count.

The Jacket: With type and fibre count, you should also know the kind of jacket used for the wires. Each cable is covered with a different colouredcovering , which indicates the environment in which it can be used. The standard layer comes in an OFNP version used in data centres, server rooms, and needs plenum-rated fibre optic cables. If you work on raised floors, it helps to have OFNP or plenum jackets. However, for  transferring audio sound, the fibre optic cables reviewed works perfectly.

Internal Structure:  A variety of optic fibre cables is  available in the market, which are used for many different purposes. You can get them in a tight pack, break out, assembly, and loose tube  designs. Hence, you need to check the internal structure carefully before investing in a fibre optic cable  as per your requirement.

Benefits of Optical Fibre Cables

As compared to copper cables, which remain a practical choice, fibre optic cables offer great advantages:-

·         Greater bandwidth and higher speed:Fibre optic cables provide greater bandwidth at a higher speed when compared to a copper cable with the same diameter.

·          Less signal loss over long distances:  Optic fibre cable is better than copper cable as there is less attenuation or signal loss over a greater distance.  Copper cables need a booster as they reach 328 feet while using a single-mode fibre cable offers you thousands of feet before it needs a repeater or amplifier.

·         No cross-connections: A copper cable is affected by electromagnetic signals which results interferences, while optical fibres offer freedom from such issues as transmission is done through light signals.

·         Security: Fibre optics offer you security as they do not radiate signals, and are difficult to tap.

·         Low cost:Optical fibres offer lower cost in the end without downtime. They are easy to maintain and less hardware is required for them.

Final Thoughts

Optic fibre cables transmit data through light beams and offer a blazing speed. With the increasing data load, the need for faster data transmission aids  is ever increasing.

If you want to select the best fiber optic cable, first of all, you must be sure of which type of cable you need. You must invest only in the type which serves your requirements. Further, as all the cables available in the market have similar designs,  you must assure that the one you buy is suitable for the intended purpose. All of the cords come with gold-plated connectors and end caps to make the cables long-lasting and provide you a durable design.  You must also check the length and diameter of the cables so as to ensure a smooth usage between your media devices.
