New Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) Fiber Optic Cables Distribution

AFL has launched a new series of low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable distribution, using fiber optic cable to the company product portfolio standard of superior design and engineering expertise.

“With strict environmental or safety regulations or workplace ventilation, the AFL LSZH cable provides a solution that supports both NFPA70 standards strictly, and greatly reduces the conditions when exposed to heat or flame, potentially toxic emissions AFL cable enterprise business manager Doug Baker said.

LSZH fiber optic cables design are in line with national and international safety regulations. LSZH cable performance in accordance with UL 1666, UL 1685 OFNR – LS standard and the international electrotechnical commission (IEC) standard of 60332, 60754 and 61034. In addition, the fiber optic network design based on the 900 microns of tightly packed buffer structure, it provides the needed to meet the requirements of network installation performance and ease of use. The optical cable is designed to support directly or indirectly clamping scheme, and the cables management system can be accessed.

LSZH cables management structure at the same time supports including 50 microns OM4 fiber cables of multimode optical fiber and single mode solution, these two kinds of optical fiber is not sensitive structure are applied to flexible design. LSZH fiber optic cables suitable for communications cabinets and equipment room, data center backbone cabling, LAN between distribution and main buildings, as well as the halogen free safety performance and environment in the process of the termination of optical components in the wiring.

Chongqing Took Special Action for The Broadband China 2013

Chongqing communications construction have made a big progress. Chongqing general board will take “broadband China 2013″ special activity and “fiber optic network, broadband wireless Chongqing” construction.

In accordance with the implementation of plan, Chongqing will implement the new 900,000 FTTH fiber to the home in 2013. FTTH fiber optic cable covers a total of 2.5 million households; 10000 new 3G and 4G base stations, the 3G and 4G base stations are in a total of 29000; New 40000 public area wireless LAN access points, so as to promote the fixed broadband Internet users which reaches 5 million, 7.5 million units of 3G and 4G users.

In terms of communication development, Chongqing focus on optimizing the backbone and metropolitan area network carrying capacity, to promote broadband speed, improve administrative villages broadband, optical fiber access rate to speed up the IOT business innovation and development, support cloud computing test construction. At the same time, the ministry of industry of Chongqing issued a “rural schools through broadband”, under the condition of the communications, industry in the city take the self-imposed stress for 100 poor rural primary and secondary schools to provide broadband access and speed up reconstruction.

For the Implementation plan, it will concentrate the power of industry, accelerate the development of fiber optic network infrastructure, sped up “optical network, broadband wireless Chongqing construction”, to provide more efficient and high quality service to the majority of telecom users, make positive contribution to local economic development.

China Formal Implementation for Fiber Optic Network Fiber To The Home Needs to be Improved

On April 1, the formal implementation of fiber optic network Fiber To The Home(FTTH) of the policy was put into effect, is the process of city informatization construction and renovation, but in the process of execution, some parts of the acceptance standard has yet to be improved.

MOHURD(Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development) and MIIT(Ministry of Industry and Information) held a teleconference jointly that asked to implement the previous issued FTTH fiber optic cables documents, they are Residential area and residential buildings fiber-to-the-home communication facilities engineering design specifications.

It is worth mentioning that the specification is not only for new residential area, building, and it’s suitable for both residential, building renovation and expansion project of fiber optic transmission, that the fiber to the home faces the first national standards. At the same time, the  policy of the specific implementation, relevant statement to make clear, the user can choose the carrier freely.

In addition, in the process of optical fiber to the home project acceptance, the acceptance by the force of the strength and acceptance standards is also related to the implement of this policy, whether they are in good condition.

In fact, on July 15, 2010, our country had issued national standard of housing and urban-rural development of the residential area and residential buildings communication facilities specification “, “residential and residential building acceptance of communications engineering. Compared with the previous situation, the new “standard” in addition to the new requirement for optical fiber to the home, in the “mandatory norms” is made obviously improve.

Google Fiber Optic Network is Expensive: Up to $11 Billion a Year

The America investment company Bernstein Research said in a Research, if Google plans to build a nationwide fiber optic network for 20 million families in five years, their capital spending will reach $11 billion a year.


Last year, Google announced details of the Kansas city valley fiber project for the first time, there are analysts bluntly pointed out that when Google creating new broadband service it will face several obstacles. Bernstein Research analyst Carlos Kirjner and Ram Parameswaran estimates that Google fiber only in the first phase of the project in the Kansas city, Google will need to spend $84 million, cover 149000 families to provide this service.

Among them, about $38 million will be spent in Kansas city, Kansas, $46 million will flow to the Missouri, Kansas city, the two cities every family laid Google fiber optic network cost is $674 and $500 respectively.

In addition, Google also needs to be linked to the indoor fiber optic cable, which is a huge cost.

Bernstein Research estimates that if it connects only indoor fiber optic cable, Google’s cost at $464 per family, if it uses broadband and pay-TV services family at the same time, the connection costs would rise to $794 per family.

Bernstein Research, said: “in order to reduce labor costs, Google will connect each community family optical fiber network.

And parames varin also pointed out that if the Google in Kansas city fiber optic service scope expanded to 300000 households, the cost will be doubled, to $170 million. Meanwhile, Google in Austin, the fiber construction investment and Kansas city are flat or even smaller, because the initial analysis results show that the underground infrastructure area even if needed will be bigger, but because of Austin’s population density is bigger than a Kansas city, the average access cost will be less.”

Limited impact:

At present, such as comcast and time warner cable and Charter the existing service providers covered by indoor fiber optic cable users are 53 million, 30million and 12 million respectively. Bernstein Research on the basis of these services, calculated the Google fiber cover the total cost of 20 million families. According to the calculation, Google fiber optic service penetration rate of 15%, equivalent to a “large and medium-sized network access and Paid-TV provider.

And according to parames varin, estimates that if Google make optical fiber network coverage within five years, 20 million families, “the need of capital spending will reach $11 billion a year or so.” So, Google should carry out this project, which will suffer a big question. They said in the report: “this has limited impact on the global broadband access industry.” It is estimated that Verizon before the stop implement FiOS expansion projects, each family optical network access costs about $4000.
