Corning Cable Systems intros low-loss, bend-tolerant jumpers

April 20, 2009--Corning Cable Systems' Pretium low-loss OM3 jumpers with ultra-bend performance are designed to greatly reduce network outages and system degradation caused by severe bending problems.

As network transmission speeds increase, available margins tighten and become more sensitive to loss associated with a number of factors, including bends. Corning says attenuation loss impacts associated with inadvertent macro-bending events may be reduced by more than 50 percent when using Pretium low-loss OM3 jumpers with ultra-bend performance in place of traditional 50 µm jumpers.

Enabled by Corning ClearCurve multimode fiber, the jumpers are able to accommodate a minimum bend radius of 8 mm (1.6 mm cable) to 10 mm (2.0 mm cable) with minimal bend-induced attenuation loss.
