Single Mode Optical Fibers by ITU Standards

Posted by Kevin Miller on Wed, May 18, 2011 @ 14:05 PM

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is a United Nations agency involved with the development of worldwide standards for communications technology.  With the explosive growth and use of fiber optic technology around the world, a number of single mode optical fibers have been designed over the years for various applications.  Since integration of a variety of optical fibers and systems is required to achieve seamless worldwide communication, ITU developed standards for fibers that help to ensure this can happen.

Commonly Used Single Mode Optical Fibers

Posted by Kevin Miller on Thu, Jun 3, 2010 @ 13:06 PM

Single Mode Optical Fibers are commonly used throughout the world for fiber optic communications,  as they offer narrower modal dispersion characteristics, making them more suitable (than multimode fibers) for medium and longer distance transmissions.  With several manufacturers, as well as industry standards, it is important to understand what fibers are available when designing, installing, and testing fiber optic products and systems.
