In order to meet the exponential increase of traffic demand, Fujikura have developed FutureGuide®-USS fiber which can be used for wider range of wavelengths, S-, C- and L-bands. Conventional non-zero dispersion (G.655) fiber has high chromatic dispersion at L-band and requires expensive dispersion compensation modules while there is high non-linear effect at S-band due to too small chromatic dispersion.
FutureGuide®-USS is designed with a half of chromatic dispersion compared to conventional non-zero dispersion fiber and the same level of relative dispersion slope (RDS) as G.652 fiber allows the use of relatively low cost dispersion compensation modules for G.652D fiber. FutureGuide®-USS is the most suitable fiber for metro network.
