Paper Abstract

This paper illustrates detailed numerical analysis, lab tests, and field trials of MCI's next generation fiber development process from the years 2000 to 2004. The new Medium Dispersion Fiber (MDF) has dispersion of around 7~8 ps/nm/km, which will satisfy MCI and worldwide next generation transmission fiber technical specifications and requirements at 20 Pb/s*km for "short fat" (20 Tb/s x 1000 km) and "long thin" (6.67 Tb/s x 3000 km) future DWDM and ULH network application and deployment.
