Fiber Optic Glass Types

 Multimode Fiber
◦ Large Core most common 62.5um

 Single Mode Fiber
◦ ITU-T G.652-Zero Dispersion around 1310 nm\
◦ Supports CWDM and DWDM and Standard Ethernet
 Dispersion Compensated Fiber
◦ ITU-T G.655-Zero Dispersion around 1550 nm
◦ Supports DWDM and Standard Ethernet @1550 nm
◦ Support Long Spans 50 KM+
Fiber Optic Types
Loose Tube Fiber
◦ Commonly used in lashed or under ground
◦ Has very little internal support.
◦ Fiber loose in buffer tubes to allow for temperature
and moisture change.

Armored Fiber
◦ Loose tube fiber with corrugated steel Armor
◦ Must be grounded
Fiber Optic Types
◦ ADSS( All-Dielectric Self-Supporting)
 Support and span length engineered into fiber
 No grounding requirements
 Installed using Pulleys

Dead End with

ADSS Minimum Bend Radius
To arrive at a working bend radius for cable installation,
multiply 20 times (20 x) the cable outside diameter.


Cable Diameter = 0.46 in (11.8 mm)

20 x 0.46 in = 9.2 in (177 mm)

Minimum Working Bend Radius = 9.2 in (17.7 cm)

To find the minimum diameter requirement for pull wheels or

rollers, simply double the minimum working bend radius:
ADSS Tensions

• As temperature increases ADSS tension will also


• This is opposite of ACSR (conductor)

• Incorrect tension can damage fiber over time

of fiber optics( No access mid span)

◦ Lower cost than underground

Fiber Optic Splicers

• Lower cost to purchase and maintain
• Must be cleaved
Splice Enclosures
Dome enclosures
• High Capacity enclosure
• Customizable using grommets
• Splice trays separate
• Typically used for butt connections

Low Count enclosures

• Compact Size
• Low splice capacity
• Inline or Butt splices

Fiber Optics Attachment Methods
Dead Ends

• Used to make high angle turns

• Must use for slack storage
• Creates Shear points

• Supports fiber between dead ends
• Line angle limitation < 20 degrees
• Some models can be used in
pulling short spans

Fiber Optic Architecture
• One Fiber One Customer
• Bandwidth not shared
• Requires high fiber counts

• One Fiber 32 to 64 Customers
• Requires optical Splitters
• Bandwidth is Shared

Fiber Technologies
Sonet (Synchronous Optical Network)
Based on older Time Division Multiplexing T1-T3 Technology
Poor bandwidth Efficiency(Protection Path No bandwidth)

Limited bandwidth sizes

Sub 50ms protection
High Deployment cost

Active Path
Reserved path
No activity
Fiber Technologies
 Ethernet
◦ Low Cost Deployment
◦ Flexible bandwidth rates
◦ Sub 50ms protection without stranding bandwidth
◦ Mesh and Ring Topologies
◦ Easily Scalable

Active Path
Secondary path
Active Path
(Dense Wavelength division multiplexing)

• Multiplex up to 160 channels of bandwidth on 2 fibers
• Capable of long distance communications
• Wavelength sizes up to 100Gb
• Can use a digital wrapper(OTN) to encapsulate many types
of data and maintain packet quality
• Most systems do not have protection

Standard Ethernet DWDM

Ethernet Network Design
 Layer 2 (Facts)
1. Switching determined by MAC address database
2. If Packet Collision occurs, packet randomly retries
3. Packet Broadcast transverses all switches on domain
4. Vlans provide segmentation of domain
5. Vlans also allow for security and network traffic flow

Ethernet Protection
1. ITU G.8032 provides a method of ethernet protection while
preventing loops.

2. Master node blocks traffic on one interface of ethernet


3. Failover achieved in less than 50ms

4. Many derivatives of this technology that are proprietary

(Nodes must be of same Manufacture and same Firmware)
Ethernet Network Design
Layer 3 (Facts)

1. Network Control by routing IP address

2. No problems controlling Broadcast domains
3. Control Services and bandwidth based on IP subnets
4. Ring and Mesh redundancy available
5. Traffic flooding and storming easy controlled
6. Most Layer 3 devices support layer 2

What to consider ??
 What is the Purpose of the Network ?
 What is the necessary capacity ?
 How critical is the DATA transport ?
 What types of DATA do I wish to transport ?
 What is the future plans for the Network ?
 Will We transport public DATA ?
 What security levels do I need ??
Questions ?
