CLEERLINE FIBRE OPTICS
Fibre optics is the only means of connectivity that will support our ever increasing requirements for data and connection speed that we as a society demand; this demand increases exponentially every day. The internet was only the beginning and we are now in the midst of an explosion, providing access to information and communication in every form that only a decade ago many of us could have only dreamed of. We have all witnessed the “Analog Sunset” within recent years and we must now realize that the “Copper Sunset” is occurring today right before our eyes. Fibre optics is the true means of all connectivity and Cleerline is dedicated to innovating new solutions that make fibre stronger, safer, and faster to terminate.
Cleerline Technology Group as a company has redefined how optical cable can be installed and terminated. Cleerline glass fibers incorporate a patented polymeric coating that is an integral part of the optical glass fiber. Cleerline fibre optic cables meet—and in most all cases exceed—all requirements for both Multimode and Singlemode fiber optic cabling industry standards. SSFTM is Stronger, Safer, Faster. Cleerline fibers are stronger with over 10,000x the bend capability and up to 400x the pull force over standard fiber. Cleerline is safer to work with as it will not penetrate skin or soft tissues, and it is quicker, allowing for terminations that are up to 50% faster compared to other standard glass fibres. Cleerline fiber is compatible with all common connector systems for standard 50/125 Multimode and 9/125 Singlemode fibers. Cleerline fiber is available in today’s most common cabling configurations for optical cables and also in a wide variety of optical patch cords that provide superior fiber connections and greater reliability in all applications.
Cleerline Technology Group is constantly striving to improve all forms of fibre optic connectivity, from the glass itself to the tools and accessories that are utilized in the process of termination. From the largest data centres to your office desktop connection and now to your home’s TV, Cleerline is redefining fibre connectivity.
MULTIMODE FIBRE VS. SINGLEMODE FIBRE
The fibre type is predominantly determined by the data rate of the system.
Multimode fibres cannot handle data rates as high as Singlemode fibres because of modal
dispersion or more simply multimode fibre is designed to have different modes traveling down it
that arrive at the receiver in a different order than they were sent. Singlemode fibre is designed for
long haul/high data rates whereas multimode is used for shorter distances and multiple signals.
Because of the differences in construction it is easier and cheaper to terminate multimode fibres
with their large core diameters than singlemode fibres, which have a much smaller core.
Singlemode has a smaller core size that multimode. The most common is typically a 9 micron core
coupled with glass cladding surrounding it making up an overall 125 micron diameter–commonly
referred to as 9/125. Multimode fibre has a larger core size. Although there are a variety of sizes
of multimode fibres, the most common version today utilizes a 50 micron core with glass cladding
surrounding it making up an overall 125 micron diameter—commonly referred to as 50/125.
MULTIMODE OPTICAL FIBRE
Multimode optical fibre (multimode fibre or MM fibre or fibre) is a type of optical cable mostly
used for communication over short distances, such as within a building, building to building, or on
a campus. Typical multimode links have data rates of 10 Mbit/s to 10 Gbit/s over link lengths of up
to 600 meters (300 m for 10 Gbit/s) more than sufficient for the majority of premises applications.
Because of its high capacity and reliability, multimode optical fibre generally is used for backbone
applications in buildings.
An increasing number of users are taking the benefits of fibre closer to the user by running fibre to
the desktop or to the zone. Standards-compliant architectures such as Centralized Cabling and fibre
to the telecom enclosure offer users the ability to leverage the distance capabilities of fibre by
centralizing electronics in telecommunications rooms rather than having active electronics on each
