Analysis on the industry dynamics of Optical Fiber Connectors
In recent years, Optical Fiber Connectors, optical cables and optoelectronic devices such as fiber technology has been developed by leaps and bounds. The physical dimensions and shape changes of the Optical Fiber Connectors have always been of interest to the product developer and the end user. Optical fiber connector is the core device of the optical interconnection product family. It is an indispensable continuous optical passive device in optical fiber communication system. It is a fast and reliable way to realize fiber and fiber, optical fiber and instrument. Kind of connection means.
With the development of fiber optic communications, Optical Fiber Connectors have also made significant advances over the past decade. Since applications in many LANs require only two fibers, a dual-core Optical Fiber Connector is required in most cases.
The size of the dual-core Optical Fiber Connector is always much larger than the size of the RJ45 socket for unshielded twisted-pair cabling systems. Considering the density of the connectors on the patch panel, the unshielded twisted pair cabling system will Attractive. In the case of workstation information exports, dual-core Optical Fiber Connectors also have serious space problems - in a single-hole American standard installation box, it is difficult to design to support more than two dual-core Optical Fiber Connectors panel and module.
In recent years, with the continuous expansion of optical communication applications, especially in order to meet the needs of fiber access network and fiber to the home (FTTH), countries competing to develop a variety of models and specifications of the new Optical Fiber Connectors, And low cost are significant improvements.
At present, the price of fiber products is lower than before, manufacturers believe that the future price cuts are not large. The Taiwan government also supports local laboratory research on ceramic rings, hoping to significantly reduce production costs. Now single-mode Optical Fiber Connectors are particularly popular with the market, and some fiber-optic connector manufacturers expect demand for plastic fiber-optic connectors that do not need to be plated.
