How much do you know about fiber jumper?

Optical fiber jumpers are used to make jumpers from equipment to optical fiber cabling links. With a thicker protective layer, it is generally used in the connection between the optical transceiver and the terminal box, and is used in some fields such as optical fiber communication systems, optical fiber access networks, optical fiber data transmission, and local area networks.

Optical fiber jumper refers to that the connector plugs are installed on both ends of the optical fiber cable to realize the active connection of the optical path; the plug on one end is called pigtail. Fiber patch cords are similar to coaxial cables, but without the mesh shield. At the center is the glass core where light travels.

In a multimode fiber, the diameter of the core is 50 μm to 65 μm, which is roughly the thickness of a human hair. The diameter of the single-mode fiber core is 8 μm~10 μm. The core is surrounded by a glass envelope with a lower refractive index than the core to keep the fiber within the core. On the outside is a thin plastic jacket that protects the envelope.
