OFS Multicore Fiber (MCF) is a revolutionary new approach to engineer a fiber for high capacity applications. MCF prototypes in both single-mode (SM) and multi-mode (MM) with a multiple of cores ranging from 4 to 8 have been produced.

Applications for MCF include:

  • access and metro optical networks
  • wireless base stations
  • data center connectivity, backplane
  • and inter-chip communications
  • next-generation optical amplifiers
  • downhole sensing in oil exploration applications
  • pipeline monitoring

The benefits range from space savings to significantly increased capacity for high speed communications. These fibers are:

  • Small form factor
  • Resilient
  • Flexible
  • Customizable

OFS is continually developing new optical fiber technology. If your company has ideas that OFS can help with, we would love to start a conversation.
