SMF-28® ULL Optical Fibre

Corning SMF-28® ULL optical fibre has the lowest loss of any terrestrial grade single-mode fiber with a maximum attenuation of 0.17 dB/km at 1550 nm. SMF-28 ULL fibre has been deployed around the world in some of the most challenging network applications, where ultra-low attenuation can be leveraged to extend network span lengths, skip amplification sites, upgrade to faster bit rates, add network components for improved flexibility, and lengthen the distance between regenerators.

Ultra low-loss optical fibre allows network operators to extend optical reach at very high data rates and make networks scalable for higher capacities – important as the demand for bandwidth grows.

In concert with advanced optical networking equipment, our latest ultra-low-loss optical fibre technology offers simplicity and reliability for operators. SMF-28 ULL fibre is making it possible for service providers to transmit information across longer distances with less equipment and lower installation, land acquisition, and maintenance costs.

T8 and Corning Demonstrate 100G Unrepeated Transmission over 500 km

T8 and Corning demonstrated a dense wavelength division multiplexing system, transmitting 100 Gbit/s per channel over 500 km of SMF-28® ULL optical fibre without use of regenerators or erbium doped fibre amplifiers. This combination allows providers to extend the unrepeated reach of high-capacity transmission over long distances without expensive regeneration.

Corning Long-Haul Optical Fibres Extend Reach in 40G, 100G Networks

Corning will demonstrate the robust performance and extended reach capability of its long-haul optical fibre products in 40 gigabits per second and 100G network systems with Ciena Corporation in San Diego. Extended reach and the ability to construct longer spans enable high-capacity transmission without expensive regeneration.  

AT&T, NEC and Corning Researchers Shatter Transmission Records

AT&T, NEC and Corning Researchers use network technology to transmit data at 114 Gigabytes per second over 320 separate optical channels on a single 580-kilometre optically amplified link. With a total bandwidth capacity of 32 Terabits per second, results exceed the previous mark for bandwidth capacity by 25 % and transmit the data twice the distance.
