Optical Fiber Jumper Management Method


Optical fiber jumper management method
1. Pay attention to the bending radius of the fiber jumper. Generally speaking, the 1.6mm and 3.0mm diameter fiber jumpers can withstand a bending radius of not less than 3.5cm, and the MPO fiber jumper can withstand a bending radius not less than 10 times its diameter.
2. Do not pull or squeeze the fiber jumper. When installing the fiber jumper, excessive force may put pressure on the fiber jumper and the connectors at both ends, thereby affecting its performance. It is worth noting that if you need to use a lot of force to pull a fiber optic patch cord, then there may be some problems in the middle.
3. Route the jumper according to the path of the fiber jumper. If the existing jumper length is suitable for the current application, the jumper can be reused, however, you still need to remove the jumper from the fiber optic patch panel and reinstall the jumper according to the new path String. This is the only way to ensure that the jumper is not knotted, bent, or stretched. In order to route patch cords efficiently, a suitable path for the patch cord should be found between the two ports, while avoiding crowding and entanglement of the patch cords.
4. Manage the patch cords in bundles or ties to keep the panel looking neat, however, bundling or tying the patch cords too tightly will increase the risk of over-extrusion. To avoid this problem, you can "unbind" the fiber jumper appropriately so that the fiber jumper can move freely.
5. Labeling is a necessary job and one of the most important jobs for network system administrators. Proper labelling at any management point in the network cabling infrastructure is essential so that network technicians can pinpoint the origin and destination of fiber optic cables.
6. Check whether the optical fiber jumper has physical damage, including the indentation and connector damage caused by the sudden bending of the sheath. Strengthening the management of the optical fiber jumper can not only increase the reliability and flexibility of the optical fiber network system, but also reduce the optical fiber network. operating and maintenance costs. The bending radius of the fiber, the path of the fiber jumper, the accessibility of the fiber jumper and the physical protection of the fiber jumper are the main factors affecting the management of the fiber jumper. When managing the fiber jumper, if these four points can be satisfied, then You are halfway there.
