Proposal of high-capacity and high-reliability optical switch equipment with multi-core fibers


We propose a concept for a novel optical switching system utilizing multi-core fibers for high-capacity/high-reliability data transmission, which is expected to recover within 50 ms from a fiber break. We demonstrated that the multi-core fibers were connected with single mode fibers by a fan-in/fan-out with an insertion loss below 0.7 dB and connecting loss… (More)
