Draka makes MaxCap Bendbright standard fiber in all OM3, OM4 cables

April 19, 2010
APRIL 19, 2010 -- Draka Communications Americas says that it will offer its bend-insensitive MaxCap Bendbright fiber as the default fiber standard in its OM3 and OM4 multimode cables. Draka also announced it will begin to supply its 150-m, 10-Gbps laser-optimized fiber as the default fiber standard in all OM2 multimode cables.

APRIL 19, 2010 -- Draka Communications Americas (NYSE EURONEXT: DRAK) says that it will offer its bend-insensitive MaxCap Bendbright fiber as the default fiber standard in its OM3 and OM4 multimode cables. Draka also announced it will begin to supply its 150-m, 10-Gbps laser-optimized fiber as the default fiber standard in all OM2 multimode cables.

Draka says that bend-insensitive fiber cables bring immediate benefits to the user through:

  • simplified cable routing
  • reduced attenuation when exposed to tight bends and pressure points
  • increased cable density in trays and conduit as a result of a smaller diameter cable
  • reduced cable rework due to tight bends or pressure points on the cable
  • improved optical performance

Data center, campus, LAN, and enterprise projects often encounter tight bends and restricted space requirements. Draka asserts its MaxCap Bendbright products can tolerate tight bend conditions while excellent high optical performance.

"Today's announcements are a major step forward for both our customers and Draka. Draka continues to demonstrate its technical leadership by offering laser-optimized, bend-insensitive 50-micron fiber cables as the standard product offering. Draka's MaxCap Bendbright OM3 and OM4 fibers are world class in their performance and allow our customers to utilize the latest technology in designing their systems to maximize space and optical budgets," said Jack Rosko, market manager for private networks at Draka.

Draka says Maxcap Bendbright multimode fiber meets or exceeds the OM2, OM3, and OM4 industry standards for high-bandwidth, laser-optimized multimode fiber.
