Paper Abstract

Space division multiplexing (SDM) technologies are promising to respond to the demands of the increasing transmission capacity. Multicore fiber (MCF) is the one of the major candidate for fibers for future systems. In order to put MCF into practical use, many technologies such as cabling, connectors, fan-out devices are necessity. After installing MCF into field, adoption of SDM amplifier is also important to suppress the increase of power consumption. In this manuscript, several technologies enabling MCF installing in the real systems are summarized.
