New Bend-Optimized Fibres With 200-Micron Diameter Enable Smaller Cables, Higher Fibre Counts

Now Available in OFS' MiDia® 2FX Cables

LONDON, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OFS, a leading edge designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fibre optic network solutions, today announced the introduction of AllWave® FLEX and AllWave® FLEX+ Bend-Optimized Single- Mode Fibre with a 200 micron coating for use in cables with higher fibre counts and in microcables where cable diameters must be minimized.

The fibre's bend-optimized design enables tight, low loss bends without risking fibre strength and long-term reliability. These fibres occupy 46 percent less area than conventional 250 micron coated fibre, enabling smaller diameter cables with a greater number of fibres per tube.

The new fibres with significantly increased fibre density enable OFS' new MiDia® 2FX microcables, to minimize cabled diameters for use in todays congested duct networks.  The MiDia 2FX cable range provides potential for system build cost reduction by increasing installation distance, reducing the number of installations and maximizing the use of congested and limited availability ducts.

MiDia 2FX cable is being presented at the FTTH conference in London 20-21 February at OFS' Gold Sponsorship stand, G18, and is generally available now.

200 micron AllWave FLEX fibre supports higher density and lower diameter cables, providing outstanding macrobend and microbend performance for access, Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH), and enterprise networks, or any application where small bend diameters may be encountered. This ITU-T G.657.A1 fibre maintains very low bending loss across the full usable spectrum of wavelengths from 1260 to 1625 nm. It can be coiled into a 20 mm diameter loop with < 0.5 dB incurred loss at 1625 nm and < 0.2 dB incurred loss at 1550 nm – five times better bending performance than conventional single-mode and leading "low water peak" fibres.

200 micron AllWave FLEX+ fibre offers enhanced bend performance, ideally suited for in-building and connectivity applications, and full compatibility and compliance with the current installed base of conventional ITU-T G.652 single-mode fibres. It is an excellent choice for higher density cables for Access networks, high-density Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) applications, cell sites, enterprise networks, or any application where high fibre count lower diameter cable may be encountered. It meets and exceeds both ITU-T G.657-A2 and G.652.D recommendations and International Standard IEC 60793-2-50 specifications.

OFS maximizes the reliability of its bend-optimized single-mode fibres through the use of synthetic glass and our highly protective D-Lux® acrylate coating. This enables significantly smaller bend diameters with lower loss and improved fibre strength and long-term reliability.

These products retain all the performance benefits of OFS' AllWave Zero Water Peak (ZWP) Fibre, the first fibre to eliminate the water peak defect found in conventional fibre, due to OFS' patented ZWP fibre manufacturing process, which eliminates hydrogen-aging defects. Their ultra-low fibre Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) enables speed and distance upgrades.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dr. Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, presented the findings of a series of six detailed case studies of how large corporations are implementing IoT. The session explored how IoT has improved their economic performance, had major impacts on business models and resulted in impressive ROIs. The companies covered span manufacturing and services firms. He also explored servicification, how manufacturing firms shift from se...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
