New Generation Wideband Multimode Fiber for Shortwave Wavelength Division Multiplexing in Datacom Links

Speaker Bio: Roman Shubochkin, Senior Research and Development Engineer, OFS (Massachusetts, USA)

Abstract: In this presentation, we report on the design, fabrication and bit error ratio (BER) testing of next generation wideband multimode fiber (NG WBMMF). The fiber is designed to support at least four communication channels at wavelengths between 850 and 950nm at speeds of up to 28 Gb/s while guaranteeing the same performance as a standard OM4 MMF at 850nm. Initial systems testing results indicate that the fiber can potentially extend MMF link lengths up to 300m at a pre-FEC BER while delivering a combined 100 Gb/s transmission speed in a duplex link.
