Fiber optic connectors have traditionally been the biggest concern in using fiber optic systems. While connectors were once unwieldy and difficult to use, connector manufacturers have standardized and simplified connectors greatly. This increases the user use convenient increase in the use of optical fiber systems; It is also emphasizing taken proper care of and deal with the optical connector. This article covers connector basics including the parts of a fiber optic connector, installing fiber optic connectors, and the cleaning and handling of installed connectors.

  • Consortium for On-Board Optics promises COBO-compliant optical modules at ECOC 2018
    The Consortium for On-Board Optics (COBO) says that Molex, a Ciena and SENKO team, TE Connectivity, Credo, and Applied Optoelectronics Inc. (AOI) will display at ECOC 2018 next week in Rome the first optical modules and related technology compliant with the group’s recently released specifications. As the name of the consortium implies, COBO has focused on development of specifications for onboard optical modules that can be installed on line cards near to related silicon. Use of such modules should improve transmission efficiency and improve faceplate density as transmission rates climb to 400 Gbps and higher, COBO members believe.
  • B2B interconnection bandwidth to grow to nearly 10X Internet traffic estimates: Equinix Global Interconnection Index
    Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX), which supplies data center services globally, has released its second annual Global Interconnection Index (GXI), a market study in which Equinix analyzes worldwide traffic exchange. This year’s GXI estimates that private “Interconnection” bandwidth between businesses will grow to more than 8,200 Tbps by 2021. The figure, equivalent to 33 zettabytes of data exchange per year, is almost 10X what Cisco’s 2017 "Visual Networking Index" estimated for total Internet traffic at that time, Equinix points out.
