Prysmian Group and Panduit Join Forces to Launch White Paper Series for CORD Deployments

Prysmian Group and Panduit have developed a three-part White Paper series to introduce and support CORD deployments. The series describes the value of CORD, reviews the development of CORD through ONF, and explores the market drivers that require CORD and a few of the applications that decreased latency in the network that the CORD initiative can provide. It also features discussion on some of the physical infrastructure considerations involved in CORD, the products that are required to have a successful CORD physical infrastructure solution and how to efficiently install and utilize these products.

This first White Paper of three, reviews the development of CORD through ONF and the drivers that allow new technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), etc. to move forward.

White Paper: BendBright XS Whitepaper

Bend-insensitive fibers significantly reduce #microbend and #macrobend losses across the entire wavelength spectrum used by current and future PON. There are two types of bend-insensitivity: Millimetre-range macrobend-insensitivity and Micrometre-range microbend-insensitivity. While #BendBrightXS fibres were initially developed with macrobend-insensitivity in mind, they also outperform all other existing fibre types for microbend-insensitivity. BendBrightXS fibres support the full use of transmission bands, covering the entire wavelength spectrum: from 1260 nm to 1625 nm for data transmission, and up to 1675 nm for network monitoring.

Prysmian offers Sirocco Extreme 180-µm microduct fiber cable

Prysmian’s new Sirocco Extreme 180-µm microduct fiber cable leverages the company’s BendBrightXS 180-µm single-mode fiber to create a cable that fits 288 fibers into a diameter of 6.5 mm. That translates to a fiber density of 8.7 fibers per square millimeter and enables the installation of the full 288 fiber count into an 8-mm ID duct.The use of PicoTube technology enables Sirocco Extreme fiber cables to be up to 40% smaller than other Sirocco microduct cables which enables more fibers to be installed in congested ducts as well as the use of smaller ducts for new installations. Overall, resulting in lower installation costs and the use of less raw materials.

In-Depth: The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things isn’t a separate internet. It’s more like a growing accommodation for the unique requirements of connected devices that are not under immediate human direction, and which aren’t intended to be a human-internet interface. The connections provided to these devices will likely serve new applications. The huge number of anticipated devices requires us to rethink the technical means and economics of connections.

Installation practices for extreme high density fiber cabling

With hyperscale data centers driving the need for extreme high density fiber cabling, the market has responded with new products that pack up to 3,456 fibers into a single cable. Such density affects the installation of these cables. This article overviews some of the high-density fiber-optic cables available today and their suppliers’ comments and recommendations regarding installation practices.
