Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (SEI) offers a low water peak single-mode optical fiber “PureBand®” made by the Vapor Phase Axial Deposition (VAD) method, which enables customers to construct high performance wired networks for voice, video, and/or data transmission. The fiber, made of a germanium doped silica core and a silica cladding, is in compliance with ITU-T G.652 A, B, C and D. A dual layer acrylate is coated over the cladding to provide high product reliability and allows easy splicing throughout the cable life. Its low water peak characteristics and excellent stability performance against hydrogen provide broad-range operational bandwidth while maintaining full compatibility with conventional SMF. With higher proof testing, the fiber gives much tolerance in cabling and installation.
