OFS intros optical fibers with 200-micron coating
OFS has unveiled its AllWave FLEX and AllWave FLEX+ Bend-Optimized Single-Mode Fiber that features a 200-?m coating. The coating enables a narrower fiber than those using conventional 250-?m coatings. OFS will use the fiber in fiber-optic cables with higher fiber counts and in microcables, beginning with its new MiDia 2FX microcables.The thinner coating does not affect the fiber’s bend optimization, so the fibers can support tight, low-loss bends without weakening fiber strength and long-term reliability, OFS asserts.The AllWave FLEX version of the 200-?m fiber will bring its space saving benefits, as well as resistance to macrobend and microbend losses, to fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployments, enterprise networks, and other applications requiring small bend diameters. It is an ITU-T G.657.A1 fiber.Meanwhile, the AllWave FLEX+ 200-?m fiber will benefit in-building and connectivity applications, and offers full compatibility and compliance with the current installed base of conventional ITU-T G.652 singlemode fibers. It also can be used within fiber cables for access networks, including high-density FTTH applications, as well as cell sites, enterprise networks, and similar scenarios. It exceeds both ITU-T G.657-A2 and G.652.D recommendations and International Standard IEC 60793-2-50 specifications, OFS asserts.With the ability to occupy 46% less area than conventional fiber, OFS predicts significant benefits for applications that require more fiber per cable or where conduit or duct space is at a premium.For example, the fibers will enable the MiDia 2FX microcables potentially to reduce fiber-optic network build costs by increasing installation distance, reducing the number of installations, and maximizing the use of congested and limited availability ducts, OFS predicts.MiDia 2FX cable is being presented at the FTTH Council Europe’s FTTH Conference in London February 20-21 at stand G18. The cable is generally available now.
Iowa Communications Network on the block
The State of Iowa, via its semi-autonomous agency, the Iowa Telecommunications and Technology Commission (ITTC), has decided to explore the sale or lease of the Iowa Communications Network (ICN). The ITTC issued an RFP seeking interested parties on February 6.The Iowa General Assembly has backed the proposed transaction via legislation (2011 Iowa Acts, Chapter 122, Section 8 as amended by 2011 Iowa Acts, Chapter 127, Section 55). Copies of the RFP can be found at ICN is primarily dedicated to distance learning and to providing Iowans with convenient, equal access to education and government. The fiber-optic network links anchor institutions in the education and health care fields as well as the judicial system, government agencies, and the National Guard.The network was the recipient of broadband stimulus funding through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). ADVA Optical Networking was contracted to supply optical transport equipment for the upgrade (see “Iowa Communications Network deploys ADVA Optical Networking gear statewide”).
TE Connectivity offers Serial Link Combiner for 10-Gbps small cell fiber links
TE Connectivity (NYSE: TEL) has unveiled the Serial Link Combiner (SLC), a 10-Gbps optical transport system designed to reduce the amount of fiber cable in a small cell wireless network.The SLC is a CPRI-rate muxponder that can support up to 225 MHz of spectrum over a single fiber pair. The SLC combines up to three 3.072-Gbps fiber-optic links to a single 9.8304-Gbps (10 Gbps) singlemode or multimode fiber pair. Each SLC chassis supports four 10-Gbps links for a combined 900 MHz of transport capacity.TE sees the SLC as an optical multiplexing option for multiband and multi-operator mobile networks to transport full-band, multi-band RF to a designated service area, such as a large public venue or urban core, where there is high sectorization and capacity strain on the network. The four composite 10-Gbps fiber links can also be multiplexed via WDM, CWDM, or DWDM to further reduce fiber requirements. Use of the SLC will reduce fiber requirements from up to three fiber pairs (six fiber strands), to a fiber pair (two fiber stands).The SLC will works with other equipment that transports at 3.072 Gbps, including TE’s digital DAS gear or remote radio heads, and small form pluggable (SFP) and SFP+ optical transceivers to extend reach.
