Fiber Cable Specifications
The fiber cable specification that we are looking for are the following: 1. Labeled with length of the cable using a durable material (vinyl) on both ends of the jumper wrapped around the cable (not flag style) approximately
6 inches from the strain relief. 2. Flexible jacket with 2mm thickness or less(i.e. Ber-tek or optical cable corporation make flexible jackets). 3. Durable connectors with different colors for ease of matching transmit to receive (i.e. one strand uses a black end and one strand uses a red one) or
have a label on each end with different colors per strand.
4. UPC (ultra polished connector). 5. Pre-tested jumpers for insertion and return loss measurements for all connectors (labeled on the package, paper or on a tag in the bag).
6. The duplex connector clip needs to hold the connectors securely for insertion, the connectors should not rotate, fall out, ride up...
