Draka Communications–Americas has introduced a line of fiber cables designed as a corner stone for next-generation networks and dark fiber networks. Branded under the name Draka ezDistance Ultra Low Loss, this new singlemode fiber cable family is said to deliver exceptional performance in outside plant (OSP) cable installations, and maintains compliance and compatibility with in-place infrastructure for transparent upgrade and interconnection.

Draka says its ezDistance Ultra Low Loss extends the distance reach in long-distance applications by improving the signal-to-noise ratio, lengthening the distance between amplifiers. This loss improvement can be directly converted to extra system margin for network designers, which is of importance for demanding 40 Gbit/s and 100Gbit/s network configurations where multi-degree tunable and reconfigurable nodes are implemented.
