Corning standardizes on ClearCurve for 50-micron multimode fiber

March 18, 2010
Effective April 1, 2010, ClearCurve multimode optical fiber will become the company's standard 50-micron multimode fiber product offering.

Corning Inc. announced that effective April 1, 2010, ClearCurve multimode optical fiber will become its standard 50-micron multimode fiber product offering.

Introduced in 2009, the ClearCurve multimode fiber is billed as the world’s first laser-optimized, high-bandwidth, multimode fiber to withstand bends at 7.5 mm radius with substantially less signal loss than traditional multimode fibers.

“Corning’s 50-micron multimode fiber customers will now benefit from superior bend performance. This will result in faster and more efficient optical cable routing and installation, and significantly higher spare operating margin, at no additional cost,” said Martin J. Curran, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Optical Fiber.

Corning says ClearCurve multimode fiber meets or exceeds the OM2, OM3, and OM4 industry standards for high-bandwidth, laser-optimized multimode fiber. Corning will demonstrate the fiber from March 23-25, 2010, at OFC/NFOEC in San Diego.
