There are two different materials used to fabricate optical fibers:
Polymeric fibers - short distance transfer and installations in rough surroundings.
Glass fibers - for high quality and long distance data transfer
Fiber Optics system offers data transmission rates of 100GB/sec at a bandwidth-length-product upto 1500MHz x Km Branching to terminals is done by Plug Connectors. When processing optical fibers, it is most essential not to impair the quality of the fibers.
