CLAREMONT, N.C. -- Draka Communications – Americas announces the introduction of a new line of fiber cables designed as a corner stone for next generation networks and dark fiber networks. Branded under the name Draka ezDISTANCETM Ultra Low Loss this new singlemode fiber cable family delivers exceptional performance in outside plant cable installations, and maintains total compliance and compatibility with in-place infrastructure for transparent upgrade and interconnection.

Draka's ezDISTANCETM Ultra Low Loss cable productoffers exceptional features such as:

  • Ultra low attenuation value in finished cable of 0.19 db/km at 1550 nm

  • 1260 nm to 1625 nm wavelength performance

  • 100% compliance with ITU G.652.D singlemode fiber, hence totally compatible with installed base

  • Low water peak at 1383 nm

  • Low PMD of <0.04 ps/sqrt(km)

  • Improved environmental performance

  • Standard splice procedures and equipment

Draka's ezDISTANCETM Ultra Low Loss extends the distance reach in long distance applications by improving the signal to noise ratio, thereby lengthening the distance between amplifiers. This loss improvement can be directly converted to extra system margin for network designers, which is of utmost importance for demanding 40 Gbit/s and 100Gbit/s network configurations where multi-degree tunable and reconfigurable nodes are implemented.
