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 Optical Fiber Access

Optical fiber access is refers to between the terminal and the user using optical fiber as a transmission media. The ways of optical fiber access include active optical access and passive optical access. The main technology of fiber optic user network is light wave transmission technology.   The development multiplexing technology for optical fiber transmission very fast and the majority have been in practical use, such as Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM), Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM), Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM) and Code Division Multiplexing (CDM).   FTTC, FTTZ, FTTO, FTTB, FTTH can be divided according to the degree of fiber-depth user.
