What are the differences between riser and plenum cables? It all comes down to fire safety requirements.
4K, 5K, 8K, 10K? How do these resolutions compare, and why should you already be thinking about 8K for your A/V installations?
An SFP module is a Small Form-Factor Pluggable. Simply put, it is a small transceiver that can send and receive data over fiber. Find out more about choosing SFP modules, including wavelength and compatibility.
There are 5 grades of multimode fiber: OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, and now OM5. What exactly makes them different?
We’ve designed our fiber and tools to be quicker to install and easier to use than commonly available, traditional options. Learn how Cleerline SSF™ technology is compatible with your project.
In addition to bulk fiber optic cable, Cleerline offers the end-to-end solutions needed for installations, including enclosures and adapter plates. Along with indoor wall mount and rack enclosures, we now offer outdoor terminal boxes in a range of sizes.
Cleerline offers two different testing kits, the SSF-TKITP-400 Pro Testing Kit and the SSF-TKITE-100 Basic Testing kit. Each of these kits can be used to measure insertion loss on installed links, providing loss measurements in decibels.
Is it true that all fiber is always difficult to terminate, fragile, and expensive? No! This is just one of the common and persistent myths about fiber. What are some of the common fictions surrounding fiber optic technology?
Why is now the time to run fiber optic cable? Fiber is the key to stable, high-bandwidth installations that are affordable, even when compared to copper installation costs. The long-term benefits of fiber also outweigh those of communications mediums
For higher-volume installations, we have a variety of fiber optic enclosures and supplies available to make cable management a breeze. We’ve also recently updated some of our existing enclosures for even easier cable access.
When identifying fiber optic cables and connectors, there are a few key color rules to help distinguish types and grades. Always check the print legend or contact the manufacturer, as jacket colors can be variable.
You’re on site and need to match an installed fiber optic cable. Unfortunately, the actual spec is long gone, and you’re not sure what you’re looking at. Labeling conventions, plus the TIA/EIA Standards, can help you narrow the field if you can’t locate a part number.
