DSM says DeSolite Supercoatings optimize fiber for MDU deployments

April 26, 2010
APRIL 26, 2010 -- UV-curable coatings developer DSM says its newest generation of coating technology for optical fiber, DeSolite Supercoatings, is formulated to optimize fiber-optic deployment in multiple dwelling unit (MDU) environments. Introduced by DSM in 2009, DeSolite Supercoatings are designed to enable higher fiber counts in compact cable, increased stress tolerance, and improved signal attenuation performance in tight bend applications.

APRIL 26, 2010 -- UV-curable coatings developer DSM says its newest generation of coating technology for optical fiber, DeSolite Supercoatings, is formulated to optimize fiber-optic deployment in multiple dwelling unit (MDU) environments. Introduced by DSM in 2009, DeSolite Supercoatings are designed to enable higher fiber counts in compact cable, increased stress tolerance, and improved signal attenuation performance in tight bend applications.

“DeSolite Supercoatings are engineered for low microbend sensitivity, which produces several key performance benefits in optical fiber, including the enabling of higher fiber capacity in compact cable designs,” said Steve Schmid, DSM R&D manager, fiber optic coatings. ”The use of these newest-generation coatings can result in increasing a compact cable’s fiber count capacity by more than 30%.”

The new higher-density, bend-insensitive fiber-optic cables allow broadband service providers to lower capital and operational expenses related to fiber-optic deployment because the cable is easier to install and requires less overall maintenance. The added capacity in the cable enables service providers to deliver premium services and create a more positive customer experience.
