Fiber coatings – Not created equal

Today’s optical fiber networks are expected to last as many as 20-30 years in the field, while handling increasingly greater through-put demand.

Because fiber coatings play an important role in protecting fiber from environmental field stresses as well as ensuring signal reliability, fiber coating quality is a key consideration in assessing the long-term reliability of any network.

Sub-standard coatings can put fiber networks at risk of systemic failures that can cost large amounts time and money to rectify.
