0 dB (maximum) for 40-km transmissions that use dispersion-shifted fiber
, along with an input impedance of 50 ohms.
LEAF fiber, the world's most advanced non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber
(NZ-DSF), has a larger effective area to allow higher levels of power to be transmitted through the fiber than standard NZ-DSFs, minimizing the non-linear effects that degrade system performance.
Pirelli's MWSDS system will be of particular interest to customers who deployed dispersion-shifted fiber
several years ago and now find themselves with a constrained network," Neal Stoker, director of marketing for PC&SNA's Telecom Systems Division, said.
This will be the first installation of LEAF fiber or any non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber
(NZ-DSF) in Vietnam.
Compared to dispersion-shifted fiber
, TrueWave fiber carry many more wavelengths simultaneously without the wavelengths interfering with one another.
The work will initially focus on the use of Corning's LEAF(R) fiber, the world's leading non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber
(NZ-DSF) with Lucent Technologies new LambdaXtreme(TM) Transport, a dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) ultra long-haul and ultra high-capacity system.
The new dispersion-shifted fiber
, manufactured by Corning, will give MCI the capability to combine several high-speed transmission channels of 10 gigabits (10 billion bits of information per second) on a single fiber optic strand as thin as a human hair.
24 dB/km, enabling emerging L-band technology and providing the best specification at this wavelength of any low water peak fiber or non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber
(NZ-DSF) in the industry.
