Best practices for a successful fiber optics cabling installation contractor according to the fiber optics association(FOA):
An expert fiber optics cabling contractor should know how to handle the cable properly. Although the glass inside the cable is flexible, it will stan if you bend it too much. Extreme care must be used during fiber optics terminations as well because thin pieces of glass can get under your skin. The ends of the connectors should always be covered when the fiber cable is not connected to a device. This way the glass piece of the connector is protected from dust and other contaminants that could interfere with signal quality.
Other factors to be considered for a successful fiber optics project:
- operating temperature
- crush load, indoor or outdoor
- distance load
- vertical rise

Single mode fiber optics wiring
In fiber-optic communication, a single-mode optical fiber cable (SMF) (monomode optical fiber, single-mode optical waveguide, or unimode fiber) is an optical fiber designed to carry only a single ray of light (mode). Singlemode fiber optic cable has a small diametral core that allows only one mode of light to propagate. Because of this, the number of light reflections created as the light passes through the core decreases, lowering attenuation and creating the ability for the signal to travel faster, further.
This application is typically used in long distance, higher bandwidth runs by telecommunications companies, CATV companies, and schools.
Singlemode fiber is usually 9/125 in construction. This means that the core to cladding diameter ratio is 9 microns to 125 microns.
Multimode fiber optics wiring
Multimode fiber optic cable has a large diametral core that allows multiple modes of light to propagate. Because of this, the number of light reflections created as the light passes through the core increases, creating the ability for more data to pass through at a given time. Due to the high dispersion and attenuation rate with this type of fiber, the signal quality is lost over long distances.
This application is typically used for short distance, data and audio/video applications in LANs. Multimode fiber is usually 50/125 and 62.5/125 in construction. This means that the core to cladding diameter ratio is 50 microns to 125 microns and 62.5 microns to 125 microns.
