Optical Fiber refers to the complete assembly of fibers, strength members, and jacket. It sends digital data at the speed of light because optical fiber cable operates by transmitting light through flexible, optically pure fibers of glass.
Each optical fiber strand is about the width of a human hair. The fibers are arranged in core bundles called optical cables - the light is transmitted through this core. The outer optical material is known as cladding which surrounds the core and reflects light back into the core.
Optical fiber patch cables can transmit over long distances, which makes them ideal for networking, telecommunications, and data centers.
