OFS (booth 2925) will showcase its award-winning TeraWave ultra low loss (ULL) singlemode optical fibre during OFC 2017. Designed for terrestrial long-haul systems, OFS says this fibre combines the best aspects of highly-engineered submarine fibres with cabling performance that is similar to conventional singlemode terrestrial fibre. Specifically, TeraWave ULL fibre is optimised for long haul transmission in the C- and L-bands (1530–1625nm) at 100Gb/s, 400Gb/s and beyond.
OFS announces the availability of AccuRiser indoor/outdoor ribbon cable designed to enables more cost-effective and faster installation of connections between data centres and other buildings that require high-fibre-count, flame rated cables
OFS used last week’s OFC exhibition in Anaheim, California, to introduce TeraWave SCUBA Ocean optical fibre, which is optimised for 100Gb/s optical transmission and above in submarine cable systems.
Using a combination of the industry’s largest effective area, excellent cabling performance in the C- and L-bands, and low attenuation, the new fibre enables reliable coherent transmission at 100Gb/s and beyond over transoceanic distances at the highest channel counts, the company claims.
Cable maker OFS introduced the latest member of its microcable product line, the MiDia 2GX cable, at the FTTH Conference 2016 in Luxembourg.
The new microcable has been designed for ease of installation in the high-density portion of metro networks. Available with fibre counts of 144, 192 and 288, the new microcable allows even greater numbers of fibres to be installed.
Fibre specialist OFS has expanded its terrestrial long-haul product line with the addition of TeraWave Ultra Low Loss (ULL) fibre, which is a large effective area fibre with better than 0.17dB/km loss at 1550nm.
Aiming at the growing market for terabit transport, TeraWave ULL fibre is an ultra-low-loss version of the TeraWave product family, which has been designed with large effective area to improve the performance of long-distance coherent systems.
At the BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition 2015, Las Vegas, OFS announced the commercial availability of LaserWave FLEX WideBand multimode fibre, designed to meet the demanding requirements for today’s OM4 applications inside data centres, as well as next-generation short-wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) applications.
OFS has announced the commercial availability of its new InvisiLight MDU Solution, offering virtually invisible and faster fibre routing inside residential and business multiple dwelling units (MDUs). This product will be offered as part of the InvisiLight Optical Solutions portfolio.
OFS single-mode optical fiber helps end users meet the growing demand for voice, data, and video transmission at ever-faster speeds.
A new generation of single-mode fibers with a smaller 200 micron coating dimension are now on the market. This paper, brought to you by OFS, shows how they enable novel compact cable designs that give telecom providers new options for their optical network.
OFS, a developer of fibre-optic cable and connectivity products, has expanded its range of totally dry optical cables with a new microcable product line.
OFS' totally dry MiDia Dry FX microcable is based on an entirely dry cable technology, which replaces the gel-based filling and flooding compounds traditionally used to prevent the spread of water in outside plant cables.
CableLabs is spearheading efforts to develop a proposal that uses coherent optics to dramatically boost the capacity of hybrid fibre coaxial networks, reports Andy Extance
Systems vendors are using intelligent software to squeeze more performance from optical networks. Pauline Rigby reports on developments at OFC 2017
