Increasingly, several industries rely on the power of fiber optic cables. For example, the internet, television, phone communication, data centers, defense communication; all use optic fiber cables because they score over the traditional copper wire in several ways.

Here we will review a few fundamental points about Fiber Optic Cable Inspections:

  • In Fiber Optic Cable inspections, what do inspectors usually look for?
  • What makes Fiber Optic Cable inspections a vital part of business operations?
  • Why is Fielda geared to make these inspections faster and easier?

What Inspections Include: Fiber optic cable inspections usually cover elements like Mechanical, Visual, Geometrical, Material, and Environmental. In addition, inspectors may check the core condition, cladding, coat, jelly casing, steel wires, copper tubing, and insulation depending on how the cables are structured. Inspectors also check the Optical parameters such as modal dispersion, bandwidth, chromatic dispersion, attenuation rate, and uniformity.

What makes Fiber Optic Cable Inspection so important: Fiber Optic cables are gamer changers in the communication industry. When they are not maintained properly, they can seriously impact business continuity for customers. Customers choose Fiber optic because of their speed and bandwidth, significantly more than traditional copper wire. They also demonstrate more excellent reliability, lower latency, and durability. Regular inspections are the only way to keep an eye on their condition to ensure customers realize these benefits.
