Fiber Optic Cable
There is no better option than fiber optic cables for high-performance data networking and telecommunications over long distances. The high bandwidth of fiber networks is required to meet today’s needs for voice/data/video streaming. Discount Low Voltage hosts a wide selection of fiber optic cables from first-class manufacturers such as Corning and AFL.
We offer several classes of fiber optic cable for business and municipal installations. Singlemode 9/125 fiber cable is used for greater-reach applications, as they offer 10-Gigabit Ethernet speeds for data transfer over long distances. If you have a smaller campus or building, multimode fiber optic cable is optimal, as it can support data in both directions over these shorter lengths. Multimode cables are offered in several classifications. A 62.5-micron cable is an OM1 cable, while 50-micron cable can come in OM2, OM3 and OM4 variants. Each higher rating has been optimized for faster speeds over greater distances. The multimode 50/125 fiber cable provides the performance needed for 10 Gigabit Ethernet or higher. These fiber optic cables are surrounded by strength members and may include a flame-retardant jacket.
Discount-Low-Voltage.com is a one-stop shop for all sorts of fiber optic cables. Adding these cables to a new or existing network will give it the lightning-fast bandwidth it needs for both current and future data communications. Some of the configurations we offer include:
• Singlemode indoor/outdoor fiber cable
• 50/125 multimode direct burial cable
• 62.5/125 multimode aerial cable
• Figure-8 self-supporting fiber optic cable
• Duplex and simplex fiber patch cords
Indoor-specific cabling is dense and flexible, perfect for linking up your office network. If you need something for harsh environments or pests, opt for a plenum-armored cable, perfect for manufacturing plants, shipping warehouses and similar environments. Riser fiber cables are made for horizontal applications such as server racks and wall runs.
Our indoor/outdoor cabling is compact and lightweight but doesn’t skimp on performance. All indoor/outdoor models feature a UV-, moisture-, fungus- and water-resistant outer jacket. Direct-burial cables serve as campus-wide backbones for voice/data/video and imaging applications. They are UV-, moisture- and fungus-resistant. The gel-free design is optimal for water blocking. Corrugated steel tape armor keeps rodents out.
Aerial/duct burial fiber optic cables are rugged enough for most outdoor spaces. They have extra lining and a super-strong PVC jacket to protect the wires against water damage, impacts from rocks or debris and animals who might chew on the cables. The 62.5/125 multimode and 9/125 singlemode options include ALTOS figure-8 self-supporting aerial cables designed for easy and economical one-step installation. The loose tube design of these gel-free cables provides stable performance over a wide temperature range.
