Corning® SMF-28® Ultra optical fiber
Thanks to Corning’s latest innovation, our new SMF-28® Ultra optical fiber is the first in the market to combine the benefit of industry-leading attenuation and improved macrobend performance in one fiber. This premium single-mode fiber is designed for long-haul, metro, access, and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) applications, and is fully backward compatible with the installed base of legacy single-mode fibers.
SMF-28 Ultra fiber is ITU-T G.652.D compliant and also exceeds the requirements of the ITU-T G.657.A1 standard. It has a 9.2 µm MFD which is equivalent to the majority of standard single-mode fibers on the market today and it splices the same as the installed base of Corning SMF-28e® and SMF-28e+® fiber.
The improved attenuation of SMF-28 Ultra fiber provides additional margin that can be used to extend spans, lengthen the distance between regenerators, increase the allowable number of cable-cuts or allow for broader use of pre-connectorized solutions. The improved bend performance provides greater margins for bends that regularly occur in the field during installation and maintenance, and allows for the design and deployment of smaller and lighter cables which can improve duct utilization, enable smaller enclosures, or reduce pole/tower loading in aerial deployments. Corning is pleased to offer customers the best of both worlds in one fiber. Ultra has arrived!
