In this video, learn about the different types of fiber used in modern networks, including references to connector types a network technician would see.
- The Network+ exam talks a lot about fiber optic cabling.…So, in this episode what I want to do…is introduce you to fiber optics…and talk about the many, many connectors…that you're gonna be seeing on Network+.…Before we talk about the connectors,…let's first make sure we understand…what fiber optic cable actually is.…So, what I have in front of me here…is a chunk of fiber optic cable.…And a fiber optic cable,…well, it's hard for me to show you so,…lemme put up a little graphic so you can see.…
So fiber optic cable is going to have…a fiber optic which actually carries the light,…and it's going to be surrounded by a cladding,…and that's what the light is actually reflecting off of,…is it stays inside the fiber itself.…And then outside of that is a fiber optic jacket…that actually just protects the entire setup.…So, now that you've seen it…a microscopic level what it looks like,…there are two types of fiber optic cable out there.…There's Multimode and there's single-mode.…Multimode is designed to propagate light.…
