Fibre Optic Cable

A fibre optic cable in which individual optical fibres are formed into a cable for primary use in side building.

Fibre Optics

The technique of conveying lights or images through glass or plastic fibres. Incoherent fibre optics will transmit light but not an image; coherent fibre optics will transmit both and should actually be called "aligned fibre optics" because the fibres are all the same length and are held in a constant spatial relationship.

Fibre Optic Connectors

Connectors designed to connect and disconnect either single or multiple optical fibres repeatedly. Fibre optic connectors are use to connect fibre cable to equipment and interconnect cables.
