Abstract

A single-mode optical fiber cable was manufactured; loss increase characteristics due to cabling were evaluated. The existence of wide V-value regions without cabling loss increases is shown by a suitable selection of fiber parameters and optical wavelengths. A selection method for fiber parameters, which minimizes cabling and splicing loss increases, is discussed. Selected values are Δ = 0.2% and V = 2.2, based on experimental results.
