FTTH Ranking Feb 2010

According to FTTH council 2009 research, the top three global rankings for FTTH penetration are South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong. In terms of the total number of subscribers, the top three global rankings are Japan, China and South Korea. These countries have more than million households connected to FTTH. As one of industry pioneers, we strive to develop a wide range of innovative FTTH solutions (e.g. bending insensitive fiber, fast assembly connector, ultra-lite drop cable, FTTH termination box, etc.) and serve telecom carriers worldwide for their FTTH deployment. Since triple play (voice, video and data) services are popular in many countries like Hong Kong and China, the speed and bandwidth of data transmission are very crucial. Therefore, the deployment of fiber optic network is indispensable. This indeed creates many business opportunities for us.

ZTT Cable release latest technical paper at IWCS 2009, USA

(North Corolina, USA, 2009)  ZTT Cable’s latest technical paper “Study of OPGW Performance against Lightning Strikesin UHV Transmission Lines” will be publish on 58th IWCS (International Wire & Cable Symposium) Conference.

The paper investigates the ability to withstand lightning strikes by OPGW cables used in the ultra-high-voltage (UHV) power transmission lines. Lighting strikes is one of the major faults of UHV transmission line which may cause momentary or permanent interruptions on the transmission lines. The papers suggest ways to improve OPGW performance for the topic.

Authors, Dr. Yang Ri-Sheng(PhD) and Mr. Xie Shu-Hong(Chief engineer, ZTT Cable’s)  had presented several technical paper about the technical design and application issue of OPGW.

The complete white papers are available for download at Technical Knowledge at ZTT Cable’s website.

IWCS (International Wire & Cable Symposium), is the world’s premier venue for the presentation of new and original wire and cable industry technologies and trends.  http://www.iwcs.org/index.html


“The Father of Fiber Optics” Get Nobel

Source: ” ‘Masters of Light’ Get Nobel”, The Wall Street journal, 7 Oct 09

Three scientists who harnessed the power of light in ways that helped turn the Internet into a global phenomenon and launched the digital-camera revolution were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics on Tuesday.

Charles Kao, who received half the total prize money of $1.4 million, was lauded for a breakthrough that led to fiber-optic cables, the thin glass threads that carry a vast chunk of the world’s phone and data traffic and make up the circulatory system of the Internet.

The other half of the prize was shared by Willard Boyle and George Smith for work that led to the charge-coupled device, the “electronic eye” of a digital camera that turns light into electrical signals. The device, which eliminates the need for capturing images on film, paved the way for both today’s point-and-shoot digital cameras and the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Nobel committee described the three physicists as “masters of light.”
Optical fibers, developed in the 1950s, had great theoretical potential because light can carry a lot more data than microwaves or radio waves. But impurities in the glass fibers of the time absorbed much of the light.

In 1966, Dr. Kao, while working at Standard Telephones and Cables’ laboratory in Harlow, England, tackled the problem.
“His insight was that if you could get rid of the impurities, you could transmit light over many kilometers,” said Jeff Hecht, who wrote a history of fiber optics in 1999.

Dr. Kao, who was born in Shanghai and has both U.K. and U.S. citizenships, figured out a way to increase the distance information could be sent to about 60 miles. Manufacturing breakthroughs then opened the way for moving signals over far greater distances, and the first ultrapure fiber was made in 1970.

Industry experts were skeptical. But, eventually, they were won over by Dr. Kao’s vision of how fiber optics could substantially alter communication.

Today, fiber-optic cables transport words, sound and images from one end of the planet to the other in a split second. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, which awards the Nobel prizes, estimates that if all the glass fibers around the world were unraveled they would stretch to more than 600 million miles.
