  1. 1. Future-Proofing Your Network 1 Driving the optical fiber future: How the newest generation of fiber coatings can ensure network reliability and increase return on investment By: Ad Abel –DSM Desotech bv
  2. 2. Future-Proofing Your Network 2 We are facing a tidal wave of demand for bandwidth, driven by new applications and mobile devices
  3. 3. Future-Proofing Your Network 3 Technology: the vital ingredient •Meeting the digital demands of the future means building networks that will last a lifetime and increase return on investment. •New innovations in optical fiber coatings reduce the risk of network failure and optimize bandwidth utilization.
  4. 4. Future-Proofing Your Network 4 Fiber networks must last 30 years+ in the field Color coating Color coating Fiber coating quality is the key to Secondary coating Secondary coating long-term network reliability Primary coating Primary coating Glass • Robustness/ outdoor durability • Bending resistance (micro, macro)
  5. 5. Future-Proofing Your Network 5 Microbending? Think funhouse mirrors! •Stress in and on the fiber can lead to distortions of the signal •Microbending = waste + lost revenue opportunity
  6. 6. Future-Proofing Your Network 6 New generation coating systems feature a variety of enhancements: •minimizing signal loss over time and distance •optimized for class G.657 fiber •greater resistance to microbending at higher wavelengths •compact and easy to install
  7. 7. Future-Proofing Your Network 7 Case Study: poor quality coating results in excessive microbending attenuation Recently, in the winter of 2008-2009, a service-affecting incident in Asia was attributed to non-optimal coating behavior on fiber: Table 1. Initial Attenuation (dB/km) 1310 1550 1625 Fiber Coating System nm nm nm New Generation Coating Fiber 1 System 0.31 0.19 0.21 100x magnification @ -10°C Fiber 2 Asian Failed Fiber 0.32 0.23 0.38 Table 2. Induced Attenuation (dB/km) 1310 1550 1625 Fiber Coating System nm nm nm New Generation Coating 0.37 0.30 0.35 Fiber 1 System Asian failed fiber Fiber with New Generation Fiber 2 Asian Failed Fiber 0.78 1.18 1.67 Coatings
  8. 8. Future-Proofing Your Network 8 Do we need an industry standard for microbending? •Minimize risk associated with low-temperature-induced transmission loss •Optimize microbending performance of optical fiber products •Provide good insight into the differences between coating systems •Increase reliability & add an extra margin of security in all environmental conditions; especially in FTTH access networks •Future-proof today's networks Future use of L&U band
  9. 9. Future-Proofing Your Network 9 Better fiber specifications will help protect investments by improving long-term network quality & reliability •Today, no detailed industry standard for microbending exists •Can we afford to leave gaps in fiber specifications? •DSM seeks to collaborate with other industry leaders on ways to help protect networks and improve performance of fiber Join us in our quest to develop better standards for fiber: www.supercoatings.com
