Recent trends in optical fiber networks demand optical fibers having reduced attenuation to help long distance transmission and bend insensitiveness for harsh installation conditions. FutureGuide®-Ace is an enhanced fiber categorized as ITU-T G.652.D from Fujikura. It offers zero(low)-water peak attribute that enables all-band transmission and superior reduced-attenuation characteristics, while converging bend insensitiveness complying with ITU-T G.657.A1. Also the fiber ensures backward compatibility with all existing conventional networks based on G.652 fibers. FutureGuide®-Ace helps cable manufacturers to design cost-effective and aggressive higher fiber-count cable designs that assist telecom operators to plan for higher fiber density installations. Furthermore, reduced attenuation characteristics ensure longer transmission distance with less number of amplifiers and thus contributes to the reduction of total cost. FutureGuide®-Ace is suitable from long-haul to access networks of 40Gbps, 100Gbps and beyond.
Fujikura PANDA fibers have a superior optical property in polarization-maintaining because of the symmetrical accuracy in cross section and the uniform constitution of stress applying parts. Based on Fujikura's fiber technology, PANDA fibers have a universal quality with not only low polarization-crosstalk and low attenuation but also the broad suitability for fusion-splice or optical connector.
Rosenberger H-MTD® is a 360° fully shielded differential connector system for Ethernet applications. The newly developed system has successfully combined high-performance data transmission, of up to 15 GHz or 20 Gbps, in a compact yet robust automotive grade housing.
Apart from ensuring high-bitrate data transmission, savings on installation space and weight, a further major advantage of this connector system is its modularity, providing the flexibility to support a wide range of Ethernet applications and industry protocols. Among others, this makes the Rosenberger H-MTD® highly suited for use by those designing solutions for the automotive industries.
