Corning® SMF-28® Ultra optical fiber portfolio


Endcap-ultra_sm.jpgCorning® SMF-28® Ultra optical fiber was 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, along with being fully backward compatible with the installed base of legacy single-mode fibers.
 
SMF-28 Ultra fiber is ITU-T Recommendation G.652.D compliant and also exceeds the requirements of the ITU-T G.657.A1 standard. SMF-28 Ultra fiber has a 9.2 micron mode field diameter (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+® optical fibers.

Industry-leading attenuation provides additional margin to extend spans, lengthen the distance between regenerators, increase the allowable number of cable-cuts and allow for broader use of pre-connectorized solutions. 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. This bend performance is able to improve duct utilization, enable smaller enclosures, and reduce pole/tower loading in aerial deployments.

Now Corning has introduced the industry’s first 200-micron fiber which provides low loss, macrobend performance, and a 9.2 micron nominal MFD. SMF-28 Ultra 200 fiber helps solve one of the world’s toughest network challenges – increasing fiber capacity without taking up more space by providing all the benefits of SMF-28 Ultra fiber in a reduced diameter.Ultra 200 Web 2

The newest addition to Corning’s SMF-28 Ultra fiber portfolio, SMF-28 Ultra 200 fiber enables the design of smaller, lighter, fully backwards compatible high-fiber, high-density cables. By exceeding the international standards requirements of ITU-T G.657.A1, G.652.D, and IEC 60793-2-50 for type B1.3 and B6_a1 fibers, SMF-28 Ultra 200 fiber ensures full backwards compatibility with other fiber types that satisfy these requirements.

With the problem of MFD compatibility eliminated, network operators have the freedom to deploy fiber-rich 200-micron cables to address capacity and congestion – with the proven performance of SMF-28 Ultra fiber.
