Curiosities about the fiber optic industry

At LDTelecom we are dedicated to providing fiber optic solutions for all types of projects and needs. Our industry is exciting and full of innovation, and we want to share with you some of the most interesting things you may not have known about fiber optics.

How does fiber optics work?

Optical fiber is a means of information transmission consisting of a very thin glass or plastic filament, through which laser or LED light pulses containing the data to be sent travel. The light is reflected inside the filament thanks to the difference in refractive index between the core and the fiber cladding, which allows the signal to reach the destination with almost no loss or interference. Fiber optics can transmit information at very high speeds, similar to those of radio, and over very long distances.

Why is fiber optic fiber weather resistant?

One of the advantages of fiber optics is that it is a very versatile and durable technology that can adapt to different environmental conditions. Because it carries only light, optical fiber is not affected by climatic variations, such as rain, wind or humidity. In addition, optical fiber can withstand extreme temperatures, from -60 to +200 °C or -65 to +300 °C, depending on the fiber type and cladding material.

What types of fiber optic cables are there?

At LDTelecom we have a wide range of fiber optic cables to cover all our customers' needs. Fiber optic cables can be classified according to the number of light propagation modes they allow, being single-mode or multimode, or according to the place where they are installed, being indoor, outdoor or drop cables. Below we explain the characteristics of each one.

Indoor fiber optic cables

These cables are designed for controlled environments, such as offices, buildings or data centers, where there is no exposure to external agents. They are thinner and more flexible cables, which facilitate installation in tight spaces and allow bends without signal loss. These cables are ideal for maintaining a high-speed, high-quality network in your workplace.

Outdoor fiber optic cables

These cables are designed for harsh environments, where adverse weather conditions such as rain, wind, sun or dust are encountered. They are thicker and more robust cables, which have extra protection to prevent mechanical or chemical damage. These cables are perfect for deploying networks in outdoor areas, as fiber links between buildings or to bring connectivity to rural areas. With these cables you can enjoy a stable and secure connection in any environment.

Fiber optic drop cables

These cables are designed to connect the fiber optic network from the main access point to your home, business or premises. They are cables that combine the advantages of indoor and outdoor cables, being resistant and flexible at the same time. These cables allow you to access fiber optics from your home, giving you ultra-fast Internet speeds and a reliable signal for your devices. With these cables you can enjoy the best browsing, streaming and gaming experience.
