New technology develops in networking, such as 40G, 100G and 400G Ethernet solutions, which means that data center administrators have new challenges: maintaining high availability, reducing costs, and seeking future proof applications. When pursuing maximal density, capacity and performance, can cable management go hand in hand? This passage will give you the answer.

In fact, high-density fiber connectivity products are the key to making high density a reality without sacrificing streamlined, cost-efficient cable management. Here are the HD series fiber connectivity components from FS.COM which ensure easy cable management along the way.

When designing a structured optical cabling system, the most basic question is inevitably: what fiber type to use. These are two standards for single mode fiber optic cabling from a total of six types of fiber that are generically used today known of “OF types” (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 for multimode and OS1, OS2 for single mode.) There is a great deal of confusion about the purpose and meaning of cabled single mode optical fiber Categories OS1 and OS2. So here is the explanation of the differences between the specifications of OS1 and OS2.

The difference between OS1 and OS2 fiber optic cables mainly lie in the performance due to cable construction. The performance is less dependent on optical fiber performance and more dependent on how...

OS1 and OS2 are two specifications for single mode fiber optic cabling. The differences between OS1 and OS2 fiber optic cables mainly lie in the performance due to cable construction. Only when you figure out the differences between them can you improve the functionality of the optical device. Here is some information related to the differences between OS1 and OS2 fiber optic cable.

Cable Construction

OS1 and OS2 are cabled optical fiber specifications. Category OS1 is appropriate to internal tight buffered cable construction, while Category OS2 is appropriate to a loose tube or blown fiber solution (where the cabling process applies no stress to the optical fibers). The loose tube cable is made from optical fiber and gives the best...
