Differences Between Indoor Fiber Optic Cable and Outdoor Fiber Optic Cable


1. What is an indoor fiber optic cable?


Indoor optical cable is a kind of optical cable processed by optical fiber (optical transmission carrier) through a certain process. It is mainly composed of optical fiber (glass filament as thin as a hair), plastic protective cover and plastic outer skin. Optical cables do not contain gold, silver, copper and aluminum, and generally have no recycling value.


The indoor fiber optic cable is a certain number of optical fibers in a certain way to form a cable core, and some optical fiber sheath layer to achieve optical signal transmission communication lines.


Indoor optical cables have the advantages of low tensile strength and poor protection, but they also have high portability and economy. Indoor optical cables are mainly suitable for the connection between building wiring and network equipment.


2. Characteristics of an indoor fiber optic cable


Indoor optical cables have low tensile strength and poor protection, but they are relatively lighter and more economical. Indoor optical cables are mainly suitable for horizontal wiring subsystems and vertical backbone subsystems.


3. What is an outdoor fiber cable?


The outdoor optical cable is an optical cable used outdoors. Outdoor optical cable is a communication line used for optical signal transmission. A certain number of optical fibers form the cable core in a certain way, the cable core is sheathed, and some sheaths are sheathed.


4. Characteristics of an outdoor fiber cable


It is mainly composed of optical fiber (glass filament as thin as a hair), plastic protective cover and plastic outer skin. Optical cables do not contain gold, silver, copper and aluminum, and generally have no recycling value. Outdoor optical cables have higher tensile strength and thicker protective layers, which are usually armored (that is, wrapped in a metal shell). Outdoor optical cables are mainly suitable for interconnection between buildings and remote networks.
