Fiber Optic Patch Cord Management Method
Jul 21, 2017

Based on the above factors that affect Fiber Optic Patch Cord performance and maintenance work, we can draw the following six ways to improve the flexibility and reliability of Fiber Optic Patch Cord management:

1, pay attention to the bending radius of Fiber Optic Patch Cords. In general, fiber diameters of 1.6mm and 3.0mm can withstand bending diameters of less than 3.5cm, while MPO Fiber Optic Patch Cords can withstand bending radius of 10 times less than their diameter.

2, do not pull or squeeze Fiber Optic Patch Cords (Figure 3). When installing Fiber Optic Patch Cords, excessive force may exert pressure on the Fiber Optic Patch Cord and the connectors on both ends, thus affecting its performance. It is worth noting that if you need to use a lot of effort to pull a Fiber Optic Patch Cords, then there may be some problems in the middle.

3, according to the path of the Fiber Optic Patch Cord routing jumper. If the existing jumper length matches the current application, you can reuse the jumper, but you still need to remove the jumper from the fiber patch panel and then reinstall the jump according to the new path line. This is the only way to ensure that the jumper is not knotted, not bent, and not stretched. In order to effectively route the jumper, you should find a suitable path for the jumper between the two ports, while avoiding jumpering, crowded.

4, the use of bundles or systems to manage Fiber Optic Patch Cords can make the panel looks very neat, but if too tightly tied or Fiber Optic Patch Cords will increase the risk of excessive extrusion (Figure 4). To avoid this problem, you can properly give Fiber Optic Patch Cords "loose", so that Fiber Optic Patch Cords can be free to move.

5, labeling is a very necessary work, but also the network system administrator one of the most important work. It is necessary to properly label any management point (including the wiring panel) of the network cabling infrastructure so that the network technician can accurately identify the starting and ending points of the cable.

6, check whether the optical Fiber Optic Patch Cord physical damage, including the sudden bending of the sheath caused by the indentation and damage to the connector (Figure 5).

to sum up:

Strengthening the management of Fiber Optic Patch Cords can not only increase the reliability and flexibility of fiber-optic network systems, but also reduce the operation and maintenance costs of fiber-optic networks. The bending radius of the fiber, the path of the Fiber Optic Patch Cord, the access of the Fiber Optic Patch Cord and the physical protection of the Fiber Optic Patch Cord are the main factors that affect the Fiber Optic Patch Cord management. If you can meet these four points when managing the Fiber Optic Patch Cord You have been successful in half. It is hoped that through the introduction of Flying Fiber (, it will help you to manage Fiber Optic Patch Cords.
