Bend Insensitive Fiber

Bend Insensitive Fiber or BIF is quickly becoming the new standard for fiber used in cable assemblies for the telecom arena. By cleverly designing the internal structure of the fiber itself, this new kind of fiber can better withstand losses due to the bending. As data centers and central offices become more and more crowded with cable assemblies, and fiber optic cable pushes ever closer to the home, bending insensitivity has become a very important issue. Tel-Conn has already standardized on this new fiber in order to provide the highest quality cable assemblies. Click on the link below to read more about bend insensitive fiber:
