Paper Abstract

We propose the holey-fiber-based optical cord cables with the excellent optical characteristics in terms of attenuation loss, insertion loss, and bending loss for the application to access network like FTTH. The attenuation loss of the holey-fiber- based cord cable with the length of 1 km at 1383 nm is as low as ~0.323 dB/km. The bending loss under the bending diameter of 5.5 mm is measured to be ~0.04 dB. We also test the proposed holey-fiber-based optical cable for E-PON transmission systems by measuring the internet speed in the server under the bending diameter of 7, 3, and 1 cm.
