Corning® 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 and outstanding optical performance. When required, optical fiber coloring and high precision splicing occur in a clean room environment.
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 most submarine systems, including linear SDM systems; ITU-T Recommendation G.654.B and G.654.D compliant. It is now available in a smaller 200-micron nominal coating diameter.
Vascade fibers can be purchased natural or colored. Corning fibers with ColorPro™ identification technology, our coloring solution, enable cable manufacturers to reduce cost, minimize footprint, and leverage an enhanced product offering.
