Optimizing fiber for consumer device connectivity
ClearCurve® VSDN® fiber
ClearCurve® VSDN® fiber
As a consumer, we often don’t put much thought into the cables and cords we use to connect computers, operating systems, gaming consoles, tablets and more. Yet they play a critical role to ensure a stable and fast connection from device to device.
For uses like gaming, high-speed Internet and more, copper cables have been the traditional solution. However, copper has its challenges with length limits and a smaller bandwidth that can’t keep up with the needs of new applications.
Prior to ClearCurve® VSDN®, optical fiber’s performance was limited and less dependable due to bending. It’s quite normal to bend your cords and cables, but when this happens to optical fiber, the signal is lost or diminished significantly.
For optical fiber to succeed in a consumer environment, it’s imperative that a person can bend and pinch it without losing the quality of the speed or connectivity.
Up for the challenge, our team of scientists created a specially-designed fiber for connecting consumer electronics.
In 2012, ClearCurve® VSDN® debuted, providing optimal high-bend performance and bandwidth for short distance network applications. Our solution can withstand day-to-day abuse. It exhibits ultra-low bending loss, superior reliability and high bandwidth.
Thanks to the introduction of ClearCurve® VSDN®, we also have enhanced a common in-home and in-office tool, the USB cable. The USB 3.Optical™ and Thunderbolt Optical Cables significantly extend data transmission range past the length limits of copper-based cables. These cables are significantly longer, 50 percent smaller, 80 percent lighter, and still stronger than comparable copper cables.
If you are looking for a connecting cable that has a powerful processor, clear resolution, higher frame rate and higher bandwidth, our ClearCurve® VSDN® optical fiber is the supreme solution for consumer device connectivity.
Detailed Product Information
Our ClearCurve® VSDN® optical fiber is uniquely designed for linking computers, tablets, gaming systems and other consumer electronics devices. This product information sheet is equipped with scientific details relating to dimensional, optical, environmental and mechanical specifications as well as performance characterizations.
In 2013, LaserFocusWorld called ClearCurve VSDN “a novel fiber design with an optimized smaller diameter that can survive bending and pinching, allowing consumers to create high-speed home optical networks.” This article, written by senior editor John Wallace, serves as an informative technical resource.
