MILAN -- Pirelli Telecom Cables and Systems has expanded itslineup of industry-leading optical fibres with the addition of FineLight™ Giga fibre and FineLight™ Base fibre, creating a distinctive new family of products for fibre-to-the-business, premises and LAN applications.FineLight™ Base and FineLight™ Giga optical fibres are the industry’s firstsingle-mode fibres with the capability of operation at the 850 nanometerwindow. As a consequence, system providers can build a network with a fibreoptic cable that meets today’s requirements for multi-mode operation, andwhich can be upgraded, on the same fibre, to single-mode operation astomorrow’s demands dictate. The 850nm operation uses standard low-costVCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) devices, while the upgradecan be accomplished simply by switching to single-mode equipment."FineLight™ fibres offer the first real opportunity to bring all threeoperating windows within the capability of a single optical fibre. Thisallows the customer to benefit from any system cost saving that may beoffered in the future, independent of the wavelength utilised and withoutthe need to upgrade the cable. It is a truly futureproof solution ” saidSergio Antoci, Senior Product Manager, Fibre and Preforms.Pirelli Cables and Systems
