July 14, 2004 Harrisburg, PA -- Tyco Electronics, a business segment of Tyco International Ltd., has announced that its Singlemode LC Connectors and Jumpers are qualified to Telcordia GR-326, Issue 3; Service Life-Part A, using standard match-cladding fiber.

July 14, 2004 Harrisburg, PA -- Tyco Electronics, a business segment of Tyco International Ltd., has announced that its Singlemode LC Connectors and Jumpers are qualified to Telcordia GR-326, Issue 3; Service Life-Part A, using standard match-cladding fiber.

"A significant amount of engineering work went into designing each component to meet the specific requirements of Telcordia GR-326-CORE," reports Paula Trindell, product manager, Tyco Electronics Fiber Optics Business Unit. "Our results reflect that attention to detail. Not only did attenuation average less than 0.07 dB at all four wavelengths, but transmission with applied load results never exceeded 0.2 dB, bettering the objective of 0.3 dB."

Complete testing was performed at Intertek Testing Services NA (ITSNA), an independent and international testing, inspection, and certification laboratory. Supplemental data was collected at 1490-nm and 1625-nm wavelengths for Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH), optical service channels, and other L-band applications.

The Tyco Electronics Simplex LC Connector was terminated to 1.6-mm simplex cordage, which contained standard matched-cladding fiber. Use of this fiber, instead of a bend-insensitive type, confirmed that the connector design performs, even under external loads typical in telecommunications applications.
