SMF-28® Ultra Optical Fibres

SMF-28® Ultra Optical Fibres

SMF-28® Ultra Optical Fibres

Industry-leading attenuation, improved macrobend performance, and 9.2 µm mode field diameter, all in one fibre

SMF-28® Ultra and SMF-28® Ultra 200 Optical Fibres

SMF-28® Ultra and SMF-28® Ultra 200 Optical Fibres

SMF-28® Ultra Optical Fibre

SMF-28® Ultra optical fibre was the first in the market to combine the benefit of industry-leading attenuation and improved macrobend performance, all in one fibre. This premium single-mode fibre is designed for long-haul, metro, access, and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) applications, along with being fully backward compatible with the installed base of legacy single-mode fibres.

SMF-28 Ultra fibre is ITU-T Recommendation G.652.D compliant and also exceeds the requirements of the ITU-T G.657.A1 standard. SMF-28 Ultra fibre has a 9.2 micron mode field diameter (MFD) and offers industry-leading attenuation, macrobend loss, and polarized mode dispersion (PMD).

The bend performance of SMF-28 Ultra fibre is able to improve duct utilization, enable smaller enclosures, and provide a solid foundation for new network deployments as well as upgrades to existing networks.

SMF-28® Ultra 200 Optical Fibre

In 2015, we introduced the industry’s first 200-micron fibre which provides low loss, macrobend performance, and a 9.2 micron nominal MFD. SMF-28 Ultra 200 fibre helps solve one of the world’s toughest network challenges – increasing fibre capacity without taking up more space by providing all the benefits of SMF-28 Ultra fibre in a reduced diameter.

The newest addition to our SMF-28 Ultra fibre portfolio, SMF-28 Ultra 200 fibre enables the design of smaller, lighter, fully backwards compatible high-fibre, high-density cables. By exceeding the standards requirements of ITU-T G.657.A1 and G.652.D, SMF-28 Ultra 200 fibre ensures full backwards compatibility with other fibre types that satisfy these requirements.

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