Which is more expensive between single-mode fiber optical cable and multi-mode fiber optical cable

Which is more expensive between single-mode fiber optical cable and multi-mode fiber optical cable?


The fiber optic cable is composed of an optical fiber core, an optical layer and an outer protective layer. The single-mode fiber and the multi-mode fiber both accelerate the speed of information transmission. From the cost of view, the single-mode fiber is more expensive than multi-mode fiber.


Therefore, the single-mode fiber optical cable is more expensive than multi-mode fiber optical cable.


How to distinguish the single-mode fiber and multi-mode fiber from the data on the cable?


Firstly, there are “A4b, A8b...” and “B4b, B8b, B48B...” on the cable which the “A” refersto the multi-mode and the “B” means the single-mode. And the number, such as “4’ and “8’, indicate the amount of core.


In addition, the mark “9/125” means the cable uses the single-mode fiber and “62.5/125 or 50/125” refers to the multi-mode fiber”.


Fiber optical cable can be used in the fiber to the home (FTTH). Sopto offers the indoor cable and the outdoor cable with high quality and reasonable price. The fiber optic cable products in accord with related standards and can be used safely.

What is the cost of the fiber optic cable per foot

What is the cost of the fiber optic cable per foot ? Generally, the fiber optic cable types can be divided into the outdoor fiber optic cable and the indoor fiber optic cable. Due to the different production, materials and the type, the cost of fiber optic cable per foot is different.   Many small manufacturers sell the very low price fiber optic cables. Actually, these cables have a very poor quality. The key to purchase the high-quality and low-price fiber optic cable is the find a reputable manufacturer which is willing to long-term cooperation.     For example, we are able to offer the relatively low price and high quality fiber optic cable. We have cooperated with many

How to connect fiber optic cable

How to connect fiber optic cable ? There are three methods for connecting the fiber optic cable including the permanent connection, emergency connection and the active connection.   The permanent connection (also called hot melt) refers to melt the connection point of the fibers and then connect the fibers by the discharge method. The permanent connection is usually used in the long-distance connection, permanent or semi-permanent fixed connection.     The emergency connection is also called cold fusion. The emergency connection mainly fixes and stuck two fibers together by mechanical and chemical methods. The main characteristic of this method is quick and reliable.
