Single Mode Fiber: How Much Do You Know?
Fiber optic cable is categorised into single mode fiber and multimode fiber optic cable. Both of them use a kind of or many kinds of glass fiber to transmit data. Among them, single mode fiber optic cable may offer the best future proof capabilities, for which it holds advantages in terms of bandwidth and reach for longer distances. However, how much do you know about single mode fiber?
What Is Single Mode Fiber?
In optical fiber technology, single mode fiber (SMF) or monomode fiber, is an optical fiber that is designed for the transmission of a single ray or mode of light as a carrier to propagate at a time. Generally, single mode cable has a narrow core diameter of 8 to 10µm (micrometers), which can propagate at the wavelength of 1310nm and 1550nm. The small single mode fiber core size and single light push virtually eliminate any distortion that could result from overlapping light pulses. Therefore, single mode optical fiber cable provides the least signal attenuation and the highest transmission speeds of any fiber cable type. For these reasons, single mode optical fiber is the best choice for transmitting data over long distance.
Single Mode Fiber Types: OS1 vs OS2
As we all know, multimode fiber is usually divided into OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 and OM5 fiber types. When it comes to single mode fiber types, it can be categorised into OS1 and OS2, which are cabled SMF fiber specifications. OS1 and OS2 are standard single mode optical cables respectively used with wavelengths of 1310nm and 1550nm with a maximum attenuation of 1 dB/km and 0.4 dB/km. The following table explains the differences between OS1 and OS2.
