Fiber Optic Solutions for the Communications Industry

OFS serves a huge range of applications within the communications field, offering fiber optic solutions for homes, businesses, data centers, cell sites, among many others. As a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of optical fiber, cabling, and connectivity, OFS learns and anticipates customer pain points to drive its development of solutions with value much greater than the sum of their parts.

  • Optical Amplification

We have a broad portfolio available of fibers with different rare earth dopant offering products optimized for a wide range of applications.

 

Erbium-Doped Fibers are available with product variations targeted for use in low power remotely pumped amplifiers, over preamplifiers, in-line amplifiers and booster amplifiers. They are also available in both 80 µm and 125 µm fiber versions.

 

Erbium-Ytterbium Doped Fibers are available in a double clad version commonly used for e.g. CATV amplifiers.

  • Fibers for Components, Modules and Sub-systems

These include Coupler Fiber; Polarization-Maintaining Fiber and Single-Mode Fiber

 

Coupler Fibers are available with a selection of cut-off wavelengths, fiber and coating diameters. Primary application is for fused fiber couplers.

 

Polarization Maintaining Fibers are offered with options such as cut-off wavelengths, fiber and coating diameters, and bend insensitive versions (R5). These are used for polarization management in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Modules and Subsystems and jumpers.

 

Single-Mode Fibers supplementing the above can be found with different cut-off wavelengths, fiber and coating diameters, and bend insensitive versions (R5). These are used for polarization management in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Modules and Subsystems and jumpers

  • Dispersion Management

OFS is offering a range of dispersion compensating modules optimized for compensation of the dispersion encountered in optical communication systems based on G.652 (Zero Water Peak Single-mode Fibers,) and G.655 (TrueWave-RS) fibers.
