When it comes to Outside Plant (OSP) deployment, there are a number of fiber optic cables that are employed for different outside plant deployment applications. All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) cable is the type of cable that has enough strength to provide support for itself between structures without employing conductive metal elements. ADSS Cables and ADSS accessories are installed most times along aerial transmission lines to act as a communication medium for electrical utility companies. Both modern and single mode fibers can be arranged in ADSS cables. It is important you are aware of the fact when you are using single-mode fibers, the cable can accommodate as much as 144 fibers in total. In addition, this article promises to provide you with benefits or perhaps the advantages of using ADSS cable.
Benefits of ADSS Cable
There are various benefits of using ADSS cable. The overall diameter and weight of the cable are so small that they seem to be a relief to the poles and the towers. On the other hand, the overall transmission range is big enough to reach out to 1200 meters. Using a polyethylene sheath will assist in protecting the cable from any form of corrosive effect. ADSS cables nonmetallic form of structure contributes to the anti0-lightning effect of the cable. It is important you know that the aramid yarn assist the cable to have a great temperature performance and tensile performance under extreme conditions and weather. The lifespan of the ADSS fiber cable can last up to about 25 years without giving the user any issue of any form.
With an ADSS cable installed, you will enjoy a new way of accessing the Internet:
Tou will download and upload high-speed Internet content. With the ADSS fiber optic cable installed you can download your favorite movies and videos or upload your files at least 10 times faster than with the usual ADSL.
You can connect several devices at the same time (PC’s, consoles, TV’s and a whole lot mores) without losing speed. What’s more, you can watch TV in high definition without reducing the speed of your Internet connection
You will turn your home into an HD home and enjoy: calls (warmer and closer conversations, no noise), music, videos and streaming content all HD. In this way, an authentic HD experience is only possible with fiber optics.
You will get an additional advantage for your online games since with optical fiber you will get the best ping in the market and the lowest latency in the game.
Fiber optic ADSS cables are capable of transmitting data at a faster speed than copper cables. For example, a copper cable can transmit 1,000 megabytes per second, while a fiber optic cable can transmit 10,000 megabytes per second. Fiber optic uses lights or lasers to transmit information, which allows it to have higher speeds than copper, which uses a cable to transmit data.
A copper cable can be intercepted since transmission occurs along a cable. In fiber optic transmission is done through the use of light, so it is difficult to intercept the data. Since it is unlikely that an optical fiber cable will be intercepted, data transmission becomes much safer. An ADSS cable that is made out of fiber optic, also resistant to electronic interference and voltage surges, while a copper cable can be affected by both factors.
The bandwidth describes the amount of data that the cable is capable of transmitting. Fiber optics can typically transmit a bandwidth higher than that of copper. While a copper cable can transmit one gigabyte of data, the fiber can transmit 10 or more times that amount.
Optical fibers are used by public services as an alternative to private point to point out microwave systems, power line bearers or communication circuits in metal cables.
Physically, an ADSS fiber optic cable is thinner and lighter than a copper cable. Since the fiber works by pulsations of light, the cable weighs less than one of copper, which is made of wire. The smaller size and weight of the fiber optic cable allow you to use it in situations where a lightweight, easy-to-install cable is required.
So in summary here are all of the benefits of ADSS cables:
Great speed in data transmission: With optical fiber, you can reach speeds of 1 Gigabit per second and also receive several High Definition and 3D channels simultaneously. It is the ideal technology for online gaming or for high-quality video conferencing services.
Excellent transmission capacity. This is because the signal is immune to external interference.
Greater security in the transmission of data. One of the values especially important in applications that require a high level of confidentiality.
