MAY 22, 2007 -- Sterlite Optical Technologies Ltd. (search for Sterlite) of India has launched Sterlite BEND-LITE (E) Single Mode Optical Fiber designed for market requirements of FTTx (fiber-to-the-home/premises) networks and applications.
Sterlite says its BEND-LITE (E) Optical Fiber is an ideal choice for triple-play (voice, video, and data) service networks and access network installations that require very small bending radii. The new fiber is designed to support these installations for cable mounting inside and outside premises. The fiber's enhanced bend radius capabilities enable tighter routing, higher fiber density for component design, and deployment of fiber in central offices, subscriber equipment, back-planes, and premises wiring, according to the company.
Sterlite says the BEND-LITE (E) complies with or exceeds the ITU Recommendation G.657B and has a low water peak at 1380 nm, characterized by attenuation at the 1380-1390 nm band being less than that at 1310 nm. The fiber is designed for high resistance to additional losses due to macro bending at 1310-, 1550-, and 1625-nm wavelength windows.
Says Pankaj Khanna COO (Telecom) at Sterlite Optical Technologies Ltd., "Product evolution is inherent to technology sector businesses. Our focus on in-house research and development ensures we develop new products as per the evolving needs of the industry. We are proud that, since the last three years, our Product Development Team has developed 21 new products that are designed for evolving telecommunications standards and network applications."
