FiberStore Offers Custom Services Of Cabling System

As the rapid development of IT technology, along with the popularity of Gigabit and 10 Gigabit network applications, cabling system requires more bandwidth and higher speed. Facing the increasing demand situation, fiber optic cabling products, due to its high bandwidth, light weight, long transmission distance and other advantages, not only have been widely used in the backbone cabling system, but also involve FTTX.

In intelligent buildings, most applications use multimode fiber optic cable. Compared with single mode fiber optic cable, multimode cable is with a larger core diameter and good light signal transmission channel. Due to relatively stable quality of common Fiber Adapters and cables in fiber optical systems, more system failures are in connection. Currently there are two common methods in fiber optic connection, namely fiber splicing and fiber polishing. The use of professional fiber optic fusion splicer can guarantee the quality of the connection and the success rate. Splicing lead to a less connection loss, generally less than 0.2dB, it is recommended to use splicing.

Fiber products supplied by FiberStore such as fiber pigtails and fiber optic patch cables are composed of high quality fiber, ceramic ferrule, high quality connector, by using special fiber polishing machine from large to fine of five grinding process, finally using professional fiber jumper tester, ensure the stability of the fiber optical system. At the same time, according to the different environmental requirements, fiber patch cables can be matched with different sheath (PVC, flame retardant PVC, LSZH,etc.). According to different network requirements, fiber patch cords can be mixed with different types of fiber termination ends (PC, APC, UPC). Therefore, in the description of a fiber jumper, the transfer type (single mode, multimode), both termination ends connector type (ST, SC, LC, FC, MTRJ etc.), surface structure type (PC, APC, UPC), number of cores (single core, multi cores), length (1 meter, 2 meters, etc.), sheathed flame-retardant degree (normal, low smoke zero halogen, etc.) all needed to describe clearly. Otherwise, you may get a fiber does not work well, leading to a great interference to the whole wiring system, which may cause inestimable losses to the entire IT network.

Each cable is guaranteed to with high quality and perform excellently, in order to bring a higher quality of the connection. Moreover, FiberStore provides custom services, you can based on your own special requirements. FiberStore entures all custom products will fully meet your expectation.

ULA Marine Fiber Achieved The Recuction Of 100Gb/s Signal Attenuation

FiberStore news, OFS, innovative fiber optic network products designer, manufacturer and supplier, recently introduced TeraWave ™ ULA marine optical fiber, which is a new single-mode fiber specially designed for 100 Gb/s coherent transmission of the transmission distance up to 12,000km undersea systems. TeraWave ULA fiber allows more wavelengths with higher transmission speed over sea.

TeraWave ULA is a major breakthrough of marine optical fiber technology, a unique combination of the maximum effective area and excellent cabling performance, but also can greatly reduce the signal attenuation of 100Gb/s reliable coherent transoceanic transmission distance. The effective area of the optical fiber greatly (153 square microns) reduce the nonlinear, allowing to send higher signal power to spans, while improving the signal loss (0.176 dB/km under 1550nm).

For short-distance transmission, such fiber can provide even better nonlinear performance, while improving spectral efficiency.

OFS uses proprietary technology for producing TeraWave ULA fiber, provides low water peak (LWP) performance and low polarization mode dispersion (PMD).

This new fiber is designed for the use of advanced modulation formats and coherent detection distance networks optimization,for example, the greatly distance between the coast and the terminal limit overseas network of DWDM transmission. Compared with previous generations of submarine fiber optic, TeraWave ULA optical fiber can reduce the performance limitations caused by fiber nonlinearity, thus providing higher spectral efficiency and lower repeater spacing.

For applications without using a repeater, hanging cable and deepwater intersection, also can make full use of the large effective area advantage of TeraWave SLA ocean optical fiber, the higher power handling capability without additional distortion, means the longer distance can be distributed more high speed channels before amplification.

For all its marine fiber optic communication, OFS can be painted and splicing of TeraWave ULA, in order to meet the critical requirements of fiber optic cables. The fiber is carefully selected to meet the specifications of quantity, color, length and transmission properties of customers. And then assembled into a bundle, and the final measurement on the wire harness, to ensure all of its fibers are up to the performance requirements customer specified.

Verizon Considering the Acquisition of Canadian Carriers Wind Mobile

Summary: The U.S Verizon Communications will acquire Canadian carriers Wind Mobile, aiming to enter the Canadian wireless market.

According to the Global and Mail reports that the U.S Verizon Communications is considering to acquire a small mobile operator in Canada in order to enter the Canadian wireless market.

The report, citing unnamed sources, said the Canadian government wants all of the regional markets in the country with at least four major wireless carriers to enhance competition. It is considered by Canadian government that foreign investment struggle of the smaller operators as a way to ensure the competition.

Verizon has conducted exploratory talks with the Canadian Wind Mobile investors, as indicated by the reports, except Verizon, AT & T, Vodafone and Telenor are also potential investors.

Despite Wind and Mobilicity took low-cost market strategy, but the two companies are still not able to turn around. This two smaller operators are completing with larger mobile operators Telus, Bell Mobility and Rogers Communications. Mogilicity is trying to sell itself to Telus, but the government stop the deal with the excuse of that a smaller operators should not been annexed a big carriers. Canadian government has relaxed restrictions on foreign ownership to promote a more competitive wireless market, but the sale of Wind by VimpleCom has been treated in the sale of the government of Canada’s security concerns.

As reports shows, Verizon Wind and VimpelCom are all declined to make comment on it.

Sources said, Verizon will acquire Wind or Mobilicity, and participate in an upcoming spectrum auction. In theory, such a move would lead to more price competition, and put pressure on existing Canadian carriers. “Verizon is now certainly carefully consider this transaction.” One source said.

Canadian wireless market has long been controlled by existing major carries. Earlier this month, the Canadia Radio and Television Commission (CRTC) have made some changes in regulatory policies designed to stimulate more competition. The regulatory agency sad, users can cancel the contract after two years of its wireless contract (in the past, the contract period is three years), it also set up an additional monthly data traffic upper limit beyond the package price cap and international data roaming tariff ceiling respectively, which are respectively $ 50 and $ 100, in order to prevent the emergence of a huge phone bill.
