Corning recently declared that it has marketed over 1 million km of Corning ClearCurve multimode optical fiber. Following the deployment of over 6 million terminations globally, there is a broad market acceptance of ClearCurve multimode optical fiber and has been supplied to over 90 cablers in 20 countries worldwide.
The Division Vice President and Director, worldwide marketing, Corning Optical Fiber, Barry Linchuck said that this outstanding marketing achievement paves way for the recognition of Corning ClearCurve multimode fiber in the market. This standard 50-µ multimode product can be used as an effective solution for tight bends and intricate cable installations.
ClearCurve multimode fiber is a unique high-bandwidth, laser-optimized, fully standardized multimode fiber. Compared to traditional multimode fibers, it shows reduced signal loss, withstanding tight bends to 7.5 mm radius. Excellent bend performance, in addition to providing spare operating margin, promotes efficient installation and optical cable routing. Furthermore, Corning ClearCurve multimode fiber has been specifically designed to retain the light within the fiber core even under tight bends, thereby leveraging the optical fiber signal’s integrity.
Corning ClearCurve multimode fiber can be used with the installed base of 50-µ multimode fiber, surpassing the ISO/IEC 11801 OM2, OM3, and OM4 product standards for laser-optimized, high-bandwidth, multimode fiber.
