Single Mode Fiber Optic Cable

Fiber optic cabling has grown over the years. The main reason is speed. A single mode fiber optic cable is a single glass fiber is smaller than the diameter of a strand of hair. Even though it is small, it will transmit data at around 10 billion digital bits per second and thousands of phones calls. There are many layers that protect the glass fiber core. Fiber coating, Thermoplastic buffer, Aramid strength member, and PVC jacket if non-plenum rated or Fluoride Co-polymer jacket if plenum rated. All of those layers will protect the glass core. It is surprisingly flexible considering it is made from glass.
