Multi-core fiber optic cables are widely used in high density indoor and outdoor applications.In this article, we will discuss some of the differences between branching and wiring cables. Branch VS distribution optical cable both branch optical cable and distribution optical cable consist of 900um Snubber optical fiber. But they are different from each other, so let's look at the main differences between them. Structural branch cables (also known as fan-out cables) consist of two or more single cables that are bundled around a central stiffener. Φ900um compact fiber is used as optical communication medium and aramid yarn as reinforcement in optical cable. The cable is sheathed in accordance with PVC or LSZH standards. In general, the number of optical fiber cable from 2 to 144. According to different application requirements, the cable is usually flame retardant and riser, as well as suitable for a variety of environment of the unit and non-unit structure. The type of optical fiber cable can be divided into branch riser cable and branch pressurization cable according to different grades of optical fiber. However, when ducts, pressure ventilation systems, and other spaces with ambient air backflow require fiber optic cables, a branch-line pressure ventilation system fiber optic cable is a better choice. The cable also features standpipes and pressurized cable types for indoor/outdoor applications. In addition to these types, wiring cables are sometimes equipped with armored sheaths to provide greater protection. Armored assembly line risers or supercharged optical cables can be used in harsh environments requiring heavy-duty protection. Application Cable is suitable for local data center, local area network (Lan) , indoor, trunk, level, riser, booster chamber, Conduit, Junction Box, junction board and industrial applications. Cabling cable is suitable for indoor, indoor/outdoor applications, trunk in and between buildings, cabling frame, cabling between telecommunication machine rooms, connecting cable in Riser and supercharging environment, FTTD horizontal cabling, EDA area of data center and automation of Factory Workshop. Branch cables are more durable and larger than cable, so they are more expensive and less flexible than cable.


About why the cable cable cable, cable is not like cable, the cable is made of metal, as long as the metal core lap-wound together or can be completed after welding compression work. The core of optical fiber is made of glass. Even if the glass needs to be extended, it needs to be fused, and the fusion work is much more complicated than the connection of the cable, requiring professional equipment to complete. With so many mating plates, fusion plates, the bending of buried silicon core pipes, and the industry's rule that the cost is settled according to the length of the cable, and so on, cable builders often leave hundreds of meters of plates next to the junction box, i once found a junction box that was more than 500 meters long. With so many reservations, there is no way to find the attenuation location by OTDR alone.
