The terrestrial network in China is mainly subject to the ordinary G.652.D optical fibre currently, while most of the optical cable laid in 1990s and have reached 20 --25 years’ service life, therefore, the backbone network should be upgraded gradually in the next few years. Therefore, how to choose the right optical fibre for the long-distance  terrestrialoptical cable is a key problem urgent to be solved for the network operators and optical communication companies. In order to obtain the best system performance, if we can  combine the ultra-low attenuation and large effective area characteristics into an optical fibre, such optical fibre will be the best optical fibre in the next-generation communication optical fibre.

1.     G.654.E Recommended indicators

The following table shows the currently discussed G.654.E optical fibre indicators and YOFC ultra-low loss large effective area optical fibre datasheet.  the ultra-low attenuation large effective area optical fibre (FarBand ® Ultra) of YOFC can meet and even be better than the most existing stringent G.654.E standard recommendation proposals.

2.     Design and manufacturing of optical fibre

 

Schematic diagram for optical fibre refractive index profile structure

Compared YOFC the ultra-low loss large effective area optical fibre with the traditional fluorine-doped external cladding structure ULL fibre, YOFC adopts pure silicon dioxide  (SiO2) as the optical fibre cladding, due to the reduction in the use amount of fluorine-doped materials, in terms of material preparation cost, preparation technology difficulty, environmental protection and other points of view, our ultra-low attenuation large effective area optical fibre products are more competitive in the cost.

3.     Optical fibre and optical cable performance

3.1   Optical fibre attenuation

In terms of theory and practical points of view, the lower attenuation can reduce the number of repeaters and reduce the maintenance costs of long-haul communication network; therefore the continuous reduction in the optical fibre attenuation coefficient is the long-term goal of optical fibre research and development. For optical fibre R & D and manufacturing enterprises, if we can carry out the qualitative and quantitative analysis on various parts composed by the attenuation in theory, it can effectively help us find the best way to reduce attenuation and guide our work direction in the practical work.

The following table shows the specific comparison value for each loss contribution factors of the ultra-low loss and large effective area optical fibre and the standard G.652.D optical fibre at 1550nm.Currently, YOFC is reaching and developing the second-generation ultra-low attenuation optical fibre technology and a key breakthrough has been made, it is expected that the second-generation ultra-low attenuation large effective area optical fibre product will be released in early 2016, its effective area will be greater and the typical attenuation value will also be lower.
