NTT achieves highest core density with 12-core single-mode optical fibre

Created January 25, 2017

Achieving an industry high 12-cores within a single-mode optical fiber, new fiber design will work to bring us closer to meeting the needs of a Big Data future.

A research team from NTT Access Network Service Systems Laboratories, Japan, has developed a multi-cored fibre (MCF) design, for the first time, with 12 core paths. The cores are randomly-coupled in a way that enables transmission of larger amounts of data through a standard-sized 125 µm-diameter fibre. The NTT team will present their findings at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC), taking place 19-23 March in Los Angeles, California, USA.
