AllWave® FLEX + ZWP Single-Mode Fiber
AllWave FLEX+ Fiber is the first ZWP fiber that meets and exceeds both ITU-T G.657.A2 and G.652.D specifications. This fiber offers enhanced bend performance down to 7.5 mm bend radii, is ideally suited for in-building and connectivity applications, and provides full compatibility and seamless splicing with the installed base of conventional G.652.D single-mode fibers. It is an excellent choice for Central Offices, multiple dwelling unit (MDU) backbone cabling, FTTH, OSP cabinets, fiber to the cell site, enterprise networks, or any application where very small bend diameters may be encountered.

EZ-Bend® Optical Technology
Cables featuring EZ-Bend Optical Technology offer the first fully solid G.657.B3 ultra bend-optimized single-mode fiber design. They are optimized for MDU and in-home wiring (IHW) installations using fast, low skill processes traditionally used for in-residence copper wires, without the need for expensive bend radius management. EZ-Bend cables protect the optical fiber from destructive stresses encountered in MDU installations, such as stapling and multiple 90 degrees bends under tension, and provide ultra-low macrobend loss down to 5 mm bend radii. The technology is fully backward-compatible with standard G.652 and previous technologies.

AllWave® FLEX and AllWave FLEX+ 200 µm Fibers
OFS offers its AllWave® FLEX and AllWave FLEX+ Bend-Optimized Single-Mode Fiber with a 200 µm coating for use in optical cables. The fibers can be used in high fiber count cables and in microcables with smaller diameters. The fiber’s bend-optimized design enables tight, low loss bends and the coating meets standard fiber strength and dynamic fatigue characteristics to help assure long-term reliability. These fibers require 56 percent less area than conventional 250 µm coated fiber, enabling smaller diameter cables with a greater number of fibers per tube.
