Birla Furukawa Fibre Optics Private Limited, a joint venture (JV) company formed between Universal Cables Limited, India and Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd, in an industry-first initiative said it has deployed a high-density 6912 fiber optic cable into 1.25-inch diameter conduit for data centre expansion using existing duct.

The company said that an increase in data traffic globally and a rapid rise in bandwidth demand has necessitated increasing the capacity of optical fiber networks.

“Within and between existing data center buildings, it has become necessary to maximize the fiber count in existing conduit to avoid expensive and time-consuming creation of new installations,” it said.

The JV company also offers end-to-end 400G connectivity solutions for the data centre-to-data centre interconnectivity, in addition to a suite of services such as blueprint, installation support, with inspection tracking, training, streamlined logistics, and an extended 25-year warranty (per program).

“Demands of the ultra-high fiber count cable with over 3000 fibers is growing at the data centers and it is required to install as many fibers as possible in the existing ducts,” said Nitin Nayak, Data Center-Business Head at Birla Furukawa.

The optic fiber products maker said it also offers solutions in 6912F, 3456F, 1728F, etc totally dry cables in less than 30mm outer diameter to fit into 1.5-inch conduits. This is supported by its AccuTube+Rollable Ribbon Fiber, made to maximize duct utilization for ultra-high fiber count applications.

To further complement its UHFC high-density cables, it also offers high-capacity splice closures, OCEF for Mass Fusion Splicing, High Density Trunk Cables, High Density Fiber termination Shelf, HD Patch panels, Break out Cables, MPO Cassettes, Ultra Low Loss Patch cords, among others.
