Fiber-optic attenuator is as electronic device which primarily lowers and reduces the amplitude of an electronic signal. It is device which primarily consist a unique arrangement of resistors which helps in to reduce the strength of an audio and radio signal. Fiber-optic attenuators are majorly used is fiber optic communications. The fiber-optic attenuator market is segmented by type which includes fixed attenuators, loopback attenuators, flange style fiber optical attenuator, adjustable fiber optical attenuator and built-in variable attenuators among others. The market for fiber-optic attenuator is segmented on the basis of application which includes test and measurement equipment, local area networks (LAN), telecommunications networks and cable television (CATV) systems, power devices, fiber optic sensors and electronic devices among others. The market for fiber-optic attenuator has been segmented geographically into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America and Middle East and Africa.
Fiber optic attenuator name is based on the attenuation level and type of connector. Increasing advancement in the field of telecommunication networking is one of the major driving factors for the market. Fixed value fiber optic attenuators primarily reduce the power of fiber light at a fixed value loss. There are also different sort of handheld variable fiber optic attenuators; which have found applications across test equipment. Testing instruments along with fiber optic sensors are some of the major application areas for the fiber optic attenuators. Increasing number of semiconductor manufacturing stations along with rising demand for high end networking devices is contributing in the development of the fiber optic attenuators market in developing economies.
