Corning Inc.: Optical Fiber for Triple Play Networks
March 3, 2004
Corning Inc. recently introduced a new standard single-mode fiber that handles twice the launch power of other ITU-T G.652 fibers, addressing a key technical barrier facing converged voice, video and data services networks (also known as "triple play" networks). Corning(R) NexCor(TM) optical fiber with MaxPower(TM) technology reduces network costs by enabling broader network coverage and more efficient network design. NexCor fiber's advantage is designed into the optical fiber itself through Corning-engineered MaxPower technology, increasing the stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold of the optical fiber by 3 dB, which doubles NexCor fiber's power handling capability over other standard single-mode fibers.
