Executive Summary

Single-mode fiber has long been known for its high bandwidth at a few specific wavelengths. Today's applications, such as 40 and 100 gigabit Ethernet, as well as fiber to-the-home, are pushing the limits of legacy fiber. One can use specialized fibers that are optimized for long haul systems, but these are costly, more difficult to engineer the network, and typically do not perform well in enterprise applications. Customers are looking for a standard single-mode fiber product that is versatile, capable of handling the network traffic of today and tomorrow, and backwards compatible with existing infrastructure, all at an economical price. Zero-water peak fiber meets all of these needs.
