Sumitomo Electric Lightwave is now shipping hybrid fiber bundles (HFB), which will be part of the company’s FutureFLEX Air-Blown Fiber (ABF) product line.

The company says hybrid fiber bundles can yield a three-fold increase in efficiency for each individual tube in the LAN infrastructure as 50 and 62.5 micron multimode, single-mode and the latest laser optimized 10 Gigabit 50/125 micron multimode fibers can now share one of FutureFLEX’s 19 tubes.

FutureFLEX’s air-blown fiber system consists of a point-to-point infrastructure of empty compact tubes available in a variety of configurations through which fiber bundles are blown using a pressure source of either compressed air or nitrogen.
