Cable Jacket - The outermost layer of the fiber cable.
Strengthening fibers - The strengthening fibers that help protect the core against damage during installation or from being crushed.
Coating - This layer of thicker plastic surrounds the cladding and helps protect the fiber core.
Cladding - The layer that protects the core and causes the neccessary reflection to allow light to travel through the fiber-core segment.
Core - The physical component that transports the optical data signal, made up of a continuous strand of glass. The core's diameter is measured in microns.
