High-speed, high-capacity solutions for transoceanic and regional submarine networks

Vascade® Optical Fiber

Vascade® Optical Fiber

Vascade® optical fibers provide the performance and reliability required in all undersea networks, up to transoceanic distances, enabling high-speed and high-capacity submarine solutions. Vascade fibers all share the fundamental characteristics of superior mechanical reliability, high optical stability, and matched and managed optical properties. Coloring and splicing occurs in a clean room environment with additional screening to ensure long-term reliability.

Each Vascade fiber type has a unique optical profile to allow customized system solutions such as tailored length, coloring, and splicing options.

Vascade EX3000 fiber is an ultra-low-loss and very large area-effective silica core fiber optimized for high-bit-rate repeatered submarine systems; ITU-T Recommendation G.654.D compliant.

Vascade EX2000 fiber is an ultra-low-loss and large area-effective silica core fiber optimized for repeatered and unrepeatered submarine systems; ITU-T Recommendation G.654.B compliant.

Vascade EX1000 fiber is a silica core fiber optimized for long unrepeatered and repeatered submarine systems that need lower attenuation characteristics compared to single-mode fibers; ITU-T Recommendation G.654.C compliant.
