A new way to link up your home and work has emerged, allowing you to wirelessly wirelessly get internet service to your house or office.
Cable companies are now selling a new cable system with fibre optic (FT) and optical (O) connections for just $30.
But how do you wirelessly connect to your home or business using a fibre optic connection?
We’ve put together a guide to help you choose the right fibre optic, and what you need to know to build it.
How do you build your Own Fiber Optic Cable?
To build a fibre-optic cable, you need a fibre cable and a cable terminator.
These are two separate pieces of equipment that are connected together.
You can build a cable up to the diameter of your home’s roof, but it’s recommended you build a shorter fibre cable that will run about 50 metres.
You need a suitable ground to connect your cable to the ground.
This is a standard, standardised ground that must be installed on the premises.
You can buy ground, but the cost is higher.
To connect your fibre cable to your fibre optic router, you’ll need to connect the two pieces of the cable together with a ground, and then connect them together again with a cable ground.
You’ll also need to use a ground wire to connect all the parts of your cable together.
Here’s what you’ll have to do:Connect your fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) cable to a fibre connection on your premises.
If you have a fibre coaxial cable, the ground wire will need to be connected to the copper wire of the coaxial connection.
The ground wire needs to be between the copper and ground wires.
You’ll need a grounded wire, and a grounding strip.
Use a cable splitter to connect two separate fibre optic cables (FT-to FT-to) to a single ground wire.
The fibre cable splits will need a ground of approximately 4.5 metres.
Connect your coaxial fibre optic connections to a cable.
The cable will need two ground wires, each of which is connected to one ground wire on the coax.
To be sure that you have the right grounding to connect a fibre to the cable, look at the diagram above to ensure that you’ve connected all the wires.
If you’re connecting a coaxial line to a ground line, you must connect both the coax and the ground, as shown below:There’s also a coax to ground cable which you’ll also have to connect, but we’re not going to go into that here.
How to Build Your Own Fiber-to (FT)-to-FT-To (FTTB) Cable?
Here’s how to build the FT-TO-FTTB cable:To connect the FTTB cable, we need a cable extension that goes to the end of the fibre, and another cable extension which goes to its source.
To wire up your FTTB connection, you can use an extension cord (such as a 10-foot extension cord or a 2-foot cord), or use the coax extension that comes with the FTTA cable.
Connect your coax extension to the same ground as your FTTA connection, and the cable extension to your FTTC connection.
There are many ways to connect fibre to coax and ground.
You could connect your coax to an extension cable, and your FT-TTA cable to another extension cable.
Alternatively, you could use a fibre extension cord, and connect the end to your coax.
Here’s what it looks like when the coax is connected:And here’s how it looks when the FTT-TTC cable is connected.
Here is how it’s connected.
