Corning® SMF-28® Contour Optical Fiber

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.

Continuing our history of innovations in optical communications, Corning introduces SMF-28 Contour optical fiber. With a first-of-its-kind combination of ITU-T G.657.A2 bend resilience, 9.2-micron mode field diameter, and industry-leading low loss, this optical fiber brings more bend and more reach in more places.

SMF-28 Contour fiber can be purchased natural or colored, in a 242 µm or 190 µm outer diameter. Fibers with Corning® ColorPro® identification technology, our coloring solution, enable cable manufacturers to reduce cost, minimize footprint, and leverage an enhanced product offering.
