What is G.652 Single Mode Fiber?
G.652 single-mode fiber, also known as standard single fiber, is the most commonly deployed single-mode fiber. It has G.652A, B, C, and D four variants. The G.652A and G.652B are designed to have a zero-dispersion wavelength near 1310 nm, therefore they are optimized for operation in the 1310nm band. However, they are not suitable for applications in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) due to water peak. The more advanced variants G.652C and G.652D fibers are optimized with a reduced water peak for spectrum operation, which allows them to be utilized in the wavelength region between 1310 nm and 1550 nm to support Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexed (CWDM) transmission.
