Fibercore, the UK-based developer of specialty optical fibres, will be officially releasing its new harsh environment graded-index pure silica core multimode fibre product at the Photonics West exhibition on 10-12 February.
Fibercore, a UK-based provider of specialty optical fibre, has developed a new capability for the fabrication of multicore fibres. The standard product used for demonstration has four cores, but the fabrication method allows for virtually any practical configuration, spacing and number of cores.
In the telecoms sector, multicore fibers can be used to reduce the amount of space required and increase the bandwidth of cables used in datacentres and exchanges.
Fibercore, a UK-based provider of specialty optical fibre, has announced two new fibres in its Telecoms PM range for OFC 2014.
The PM Fibre range has been extended further to include up-rated variants of HB980T(6.6/125) and HB1250T(9/125). These new designs maximise the fundamental benefit of the Bow-Tie structure to deliver a 40 per cent increase in birefringence when compared with more conventional PM fibres.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
