Eight-channel multicore fibre fanout device

Optoscribe has launched a new eight-channel multicore fibre fanout device. The 3D Optofan Series offers a standard eight-core configuration that can be easily customised to suit Multicore fibre geometry. This enables users to increase the amount of data that can be transferred across an optical fibre, thereby reducing cabling costs and dimensions while maximising data bandwidth, the company says.
