28 January 2017 Overcoming the capacity crunch: ITU-T G.657.B3 compatible 7-core and 19-core hole-assisted fibers

We present the novel 7-core and 19-core hole-assisted fibers designed to satisfy the most demanding requirements of the ITU-T G.657.B3 recommendation for bend-insensitive fibers. The fibers are compatible with standard single-mode fibers with regard to modal properties, dispersion characteristics, and transmission loss. The fibers presented exhibit no crosstalk and it is possible to use them together with other multiplexing methods like CWDM or DWDM. Dedicated fanin/ fan-outs have been created in order to make immediate use in industry possible. The hole-assisted 19-core fiber with single-mode cores is being presented for the very first time.
