Prysmian Group highlights the effect of leveraging bend-insensitive fibers throughout the whole wavelength spectrum utilized by present and future PON innovation

Milan, Italy, 27 September 2021— In the brand-new period of active connection, it is important that the market aims to increase the capability of the world’s optical networks and operators need to select to take advantage of a bend-insensitive fiber cabling system that can stay up to date with brand-new innovations, was the message revealed by Prysmian Group in its newest Industry Insight

Bend-insensitive fibers, specifically the very best carrying out G.657 A2, can make it possible for the advancement of severe fiber count and minimized size cabling services to offer the greatest bandwidth capability in duct setups and reduce losses connected to macrobends and microbends. Operators will have access to quicker and more steady optical networks, affordable and environmentally-friendly setups with lower operating expenses and increased network life expectancy. Bend resistance can extend the predicted network life time by enhancing repair work durability and as such, is advantageous for operators aiming to make substantial OPEX cost savings.

” The increasing wavelength requirements of PONs and cordless networks drives the requirement for genuinely bend-insensitive optical fibers, to end up being an important part of Fibre-to the-X (FTTx) and 5G mobile networks,” stated Prysmian Group Executive Vice President Telecom Business Philippe Vanhille. “In the brand-new age of active connection, it is important that we increase the capability of the world’s optical networks and operators should select to take advantage of a bend-intensive fiber cabling system that can stay up to date with brand-new innovations. Operators that benefit from these fibers, and in specific the G.657 A2, will accomplish the most possible from their released networks.”

Adopting cost-efficient and versatile bend-intensive single mode fibers can protect the whole wavelength spectrum utilized by existing and future Passive Optical Networks (PONs). With bend-insensitive fibers, the stability of the network facilities is protected, stability is increased throughout all bands and possibilities are opened up for system development. The strength of bend-insensitive fibers supplies makers with the capability to create cabling services that can support the complete usage of transmission bands and future-proof greater capability networks, that will frequently run beyond present basic varieties.

Moreover, making use of G.657 fibers that are covered with 200 μm and 180 μm size can substantially minimize the measurements of the cable televisions, while accomplishing greater fiber density. These decreased size fibers are completely suitable with any G.652 fiber, that makes them simple to place into an existing network or upgrade parts of existing optical facilities. As fiber networks end up being more congested, and area minimal, fibre bends are most likely to happen and for that reason avoiding power leak with G.657 fibers is important. Bend resistance likewise enables the usage of smaller sized loop guides when set up and a decrease in the bend radius of splice trays.
