Over the last 10 years we have seen a shift from G.652.D to G.657.A1 as a standard transmission fiber due to the improved bend performance. As fiber density in deployments increases the next logical step in the same direction is broader deployment of G.657.A2 – the next level in bend insensitive fibers. Network installation, performance and maintenance benefits can be achieved by full, or even partial deployment of this highly bend insensitive fiber across the network, in particular if the chosen A2 fiber is fully backward compatible with legacy G.652.D fiber
In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits of deployment of highly bend insensitive fibers deeper in the network and their critical role in building future ready networks.
Key Topics Included:
• Background on bend insensitive fiber standards
• Examples of deployment of highly bend insensitive fibers broader in the network and benefits realized
• Compatibility of A2 fibers with legacy fibers and actives.
