    Optoscribe and Sumitomo Electric Deliver Field-Deployed Testbed for MCF Communications

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Optoscribe, a supplier of 3D glass-based integrated photonics components, and Sumitomo Electric Industries, an optical fiber cable manufacturing technology supplier, have teamed with the University of L’Aquila (UnivAQ) in Italy on a research project to help strengthen the telecommunications infrastructure of the city of L’Aquila. The companies are working to deploy a multicore fiber (MCF) testbed for space-division multiplexed (SDM) communications in a real-field environment.

    As part of this project, Optoscribe’s fan-in/fan-out devices convert between multiple standard single-mode fibers and Sumitomo Electric’s MCFs. The use of MCF can increase the amount of data transferred across the optical fiber while minimizing…
