What's the difference between Indoor Fiber Cables and Outdoor Fiber Cables?

Indoor cables:

Fiber cables can be divided into indoor outdoor fiber cable according to different use environments. Indoor optical cables are classified according to their usage environment, while outdoor optical cables are the opposite.

Indoor optical cable is a kind of cable formed by optical fiber (optical transmission carrier) through a certain process. It is mainly composed of optical fibers (glass filament as thin as hair) and plastic protective sleeve and plastic outer skin. There are no gold, silver, copper and aluminum in the optical cable, and there is generally no recycling value.

Indoor optical cable is a kind of communication line that a certain number of optical fibers form a cable core in a certain way, and some of them are wrapped with sheaths or outer sheaths to realize optical signal transmission.

Indoor optical cable has low tensile strength and poor protective layer, but it is also more portable and economical. Indoor optical cables are mainly suitable for wiring in buildings and connection between network devices.

Characteristics of indoor optical cable:

Indoor optical cables have smaller tensile strength and poorer protective layer, but they are relatively lighter and more economical. Indoor optical cable is mainly suitable for horizontal wiring subsystem and vertical backbone subsystem. Outdoor optical cables have higher tensile strength, thicker protective layer, which are usually armoured packages (i.e. metal skin wrapped). Outdoor optical cables are mostly used in building group subsystems, and can be used in the occasions such as outdoor burial, pipeline, overhead and underwater laying and so on.


Outdoor Fiber Cable:

Outdoor optical cable is the optical cable used for outdoor. The contrast is the indoor optical cables. Outdoor optical cable is a communication line for optical signal transmission. A certain number of optical fibers form a cable core in a certain way, which is wrapped with sheaths and some with outer sheaths.

The features of the outdoor optical cable :

It is mainly composed of optical fibers (glass filament as thin as hair) and plastic protective sleeve and plastic outer skin. There are no gold, silver, copper and aluminum in the optical cable, and there is generally no recycling value. Outdoor optical cables have higher tensile strength, thicker protective layer, which are usually armoured (i.e. metal skin wrapped). Outdoor optical cables are mainly suitable for interconnection between buildings and remote networks.
