Corning Unveils Ultra-Bendable Multimode ClearCurve Fiber

Corning unveiled a new ClearCurve ultra-bendable multimode optical fiber for use in data centers and enterprise networks.




Corning said its ClearCurve multimode fiber is the world's first laser-optimized multimode fiber to withstand tight bends at or below 10 mm radius with substantially less signal loss than traditional multimode fiber. This new fiber allows designers, installers and operators of enterprise networks -- including local area networks, data centers and industrial networks -- to deploy optical fiber in more places by delivering all of the bandwidth benefits of optical fiber in a package that is easier to handle and install than copper.


ClearCurve 50-micron multimode fiber meets or exceeds the OM3 industry standard for high-bandwidth, laser-optimized multimode fibers, as well as the proposed OM4 standard. Laser-optimized multimode fibers are the fibers of choice for bandwidth-intensive companies such as financial institutions, hospitals, high-tech manufacturing firms and universities.
