Lucent Technologies announced a breakthrough in optical-fiber manufacturing: AllWave(TM) fiber. By virtually eliminating water molecules in glass fiber, Lucent increased the number of usable wavelengths -- "lanes on the Info Highway" -- by 50 percent.
Murray Hill, N.J. -- Lucent Technologies today announced a breakthrough in the manufacturing of optical fiber which harnesses a previously untapped region in the fiber spectrum. This new process has led to the introduction of a revolutionary new optical fiber, called AllWaveTM Fiber, which provides 50 percent more usable wavelengths than today's conventional fiber.
