Judge's comment: "The development of the TeraWave ULL Single-Mode Optical Fiber is marked by both engineering and ingenuity. Applying submarine fiber technology to a terrestrial fiber, to meet a current and growing connectivity challenge, shows thoughtful innovation. Achieving a 50%-higher effective area than existing technology is an engineering feat. Combining those two characteristics to lower the cost-per-bit of a lighted fiber, by eliminating the need for regeneration, is a noteworthy accomplishment."
TeraWave™ ULL Optical Fiber brings submarine fiber technology into terrestrial fiber, making it possible to cable a fiber with 50% higher effective area than standard G.652.D fiber. Silica core technology enables the ultra-low loss capability.
