The ideas that flow over the communications networks of today, drive the modern world and allow us to make human connections, even when separated by distance. The need for effective delivery of communication networks has never been greater, as bandwidth demands from users grow and the services connected to communication infrastructures increase in diversity. Reducing errors in operations and installation and allowing the effective use of infrastructure means that fibers must have a combination of features that support these goals. There can be no compromise in any one feature, without compromise in network efficiency.
The SMF-28 Contour optical fiber portfolio is Corning’s platform for density with improved bend resilience and 9.2-micron standard mode field diameter. The portfolio includes low loss and low outer diameter options to accommodate specific requirements.
SMF-28 Contour Pro Optical Fiber
SMF-28 Contour Pro is a low loss fiber that offers exceptional density with ITU-T G.657.A2 bend performance for installation efficiency. It has a 190-micron outer diameter to enable the design of smaller, lighter, high-density cables with a 9.2-micron standard mode field diameter for compatibility with existing network fibers. SMF-28 Contour Pro fiber has an industry-leading low loss across all wavelengths of interest in communication systems.
SMF-28 Contour Fit Optical Fiber
SMF-28 Contour Fit fiber offers exceptional density with ITU-T G.657.A1 bend performance for installation efficiency. It has a 190-micron outer diameter to enable the design of smaller, lighter, high-density cables with a 9.2-micron standard mode field diameter for compatibility with existing network fibers.
SMF-28 Contour fibers can be purchased natural or colored. Fibers with Corning® ColorPro® identification technology, our coloring solution, enable cable manufacturers to reduce cost, minimize footprint, and leverage an enhanced product offering.
