CLEERLINE OPTICAL FIBER
Cleerline fiber has redefined how optical cables
can be installed and terminated. Cleerline fiber
optics incorporate a patented polymeric coating
that surrounds the glass fiber. Cleerline fibers are
stonger, safer, and allow for faster terminations
compared to all other glass fibers. Cleerline fiber
is compatible with all common connector systems
for standard 50/125 multimode and 9/125 single
mode fibers and are available in today's most
common cabling configurations for optical cables.
Cleerline also offers a wide variety of optical patch
cords that provide for superior fiber connections
and greater reliablity in all applications.
Cleerline Fiber Optics
Cleerline fiber optic cabling has redefined how fiber can be
installed and terminated elimnating many of the processes
involved in the termination of fiber optic cable while adding
strength and safety that is unmatched by any other optical
fiber. Cleerline's coated fiber provides protection for bend
longevity assured for 10,000X longer lift times and superior
mechanical strength compared to all other commercially
available glass fibers. This allows the installer to quickly
terminate mechanical splice style connections and eliminates
the imperfections or scarring of the glass caused by
stripping when terminating either mechanical or epoxy style
connectors. Cleerline supports all broadband applications
and complies with the most stringent industry standards.
Features & Benefits
•Cleerline coated fibers are available in NSF (non-stripfiber) and SSF (standard-strip-fiber) versions. Both
reduce the time and precision required to terminate
the optical fiber and provide a fiber optic cable that is
stronger and safer than any other optical cable.
•Cleerlines's glass fiber is protected from the
environment at all times as the glass is never exposed
to the elements and is protected from nicks,
scratches, and impacts that are common during any
fiber optic installation.
•Cleerline fiber is designed for ease of use and safety
due to incredible flexibility of the fiber at all times
during the termination process.
•Incredible bend longevity assured for 10,000X longer
lift times than normal or "bend & curve" glass fibers.
•Ultra Low Attenuation Loss on tight bend radius
•Cleerline NSF fibers incorporate an exclusive "Soft
Peel" 250um jacket identifier that is easily removed
•Reduced tooling required for termination.

Cleerline Singlemode Fiber
• The bending loss performance is superior to G.657 A&B specifications.
• The Depressed (or Grooved) Index Profile.
In Macro-bending loss tests Cleerline fiber performance exceeds that of typical
legacy fibers and “bend & curve” type fibers.

Fatigue Value Measurement
Method (IEC 60793-1-33)
Cleerline fibers allow tighter bend radius (R15 fiber compatible) and high mechanical
strength allows for pull force tensions that exceed all commericially available fibers,
even "bend and curve" types. This proven long lifetime fiber characteristic makes
Cleerline fiber a superior product in both performance and reliability.

• Bending Longevity
• High Mechanical Strength

The fiber is tightly fixed between two translation stages.

Cleerline fiber exceeds all other fibers in tensile strength allowing for increased pull

One fiber end is fixed to the cylinder. The other one is
passed through two 3mm rods and equipped with 40g
ballast. Then motorized engine rotates 180 degress back and
forth to bend the fiber in different directions.

After removing the acrylate layer there's

Failure Probability (%)
The following test results prove that Cleerline fiber has superior mechanical and
bending properties in all environments, even under rugged conditions. Cleerline fiber
can withstand bend and pull tensions that cause standard fibers to fail, providing
greater reliability and performance than any other commercially available fiber.
The additional tension force calculation- Dave
Mazzarese et al., Proc 57th IWCS (2008)
Fiber lifetime estimate- IEC TR 62048
Both bending and tension force should be
considered to accurately determine the long
term mechanical reliability of the optical fiber.
Cable Lifetime Estimates
20
The graphs demonstrate the importance of fatigue value (n) for lifetime estimation.
Cleerline fiber (n=30) performs better under bend and pull conditions than all
standard fibers including "bend & curve" types for extended lifetime,
performance, and reliability.
21 cable jacket is a high E material (6.5GPa)&&
The impact of n on cable lifetime estimation (OD=3mm,
cladding=125um, bending + 145N tension)
22
- All cables have OD=3mm and high E value for jacket material
- It is shown that fibers with higher n values provide better performance/extended lifetime
- Cleerline performance exceeds typical "legacy" fibers and even "bend & curve" type
fibers due to lower glass diameter and consequently smaller static bending stress
cable jacket is a high E material (6.5GPa)&&
Different fibers put in 3mm OD cable lifetime
estimation (bending and 145N additional tension)

Cleerline Fiber Advantages
•Cleerline Fiber significantly improves the mechanical strength of the optical fiber.
This superior strength allows for strenuous installation conditions and installer and
end user abuse without resulting failures both during and after the installation.
Whether terminating in the field or using a Cleerline patch cord Cleerline fiber
provides greater reliablity for all connections.
•The durability of the polymeric coating minimizes costly repairs and interruptions,
ensuring the smooth long-term operation of optical networks and limiting the long
term liability of the products.
•Low fatigue value is an essential property for any bend insensitive fiber, more
important than the optical properties. Cleerline fiber performs better with less
attenuation loss under bend than any other commercially available fiber cable.
•The high mechanical strength of Cleerline coated fibers allow for minimized cable
size and resulting higher strand counts in conduits, etc., increasing the efficiency of
cable managment and heat dissipation in the back panel areas of installations.
•Cleerline's exclusive "Soft Peel" coating allow for fast and easy fiber installation with
tremendous advantages in technician safety during the termination process.
•Cleerline provides a complete line of fibers for Enterprise Data Centers, Premises,
Cleerline Installation Advantages
•High fiber counts in any jacket size; up to 12 fibers in a 3.5mm OD jacket
•Superior bend without failure
•Long Life Time (high fatigue value fiber Nd > 30, beyond ITU-T 10ppm @ 20 years)
•High pulling force (> 100kgf)
•Cleerline fibers reduce the weight of fiber and the resulting installation
•Cleerline coated fibers are protected from environmental conditions
•Coated fibers are protected from nicks, scratches, and impacts that occur during
termination and handling.
•Long Life Time (high fatigue value fiber Nd > 30, beyond ITU-T 10ppm @ 20 years)
•High pulling force (> 100kgf)
•Reduces weight of fiber and the resulting installation
