Optical Fiber

Optical Fiber

An optical fiber connects an optical port to an upstream device or optical network terminal.

Appearance and Structure

The appearances of a single-mode optical fiber and a multi-mode optical fiber are the same, but their colors are different. The single-mode optical fiber is yellow, and the multi-mode optical fiber is orange.

Figure 5-7 and Figure 5-8 show the appearances of single-mode optical fibers with different connectors.

Figure 5-8  Appearance of a single-mode optical fiber with SC/PC (SC/UPC) connectors

An optical fiber carries optical signals. It is connected as follows:

  • One end of the optical fiber is connected to an optical port of a board.
  • The other end of the optical fiber is connected to the optical distribution frame (ODF), optical port of the upper layer device, or optical port of other devices.

Fiber Selection Criterion

Table 5-6 lists the criteria for selecting optical fibers. Table 5-7 lists common optical connectors.
