Abstract

This paper describes cases where the new type of fiber called Multi-core fiber that can resolve the current Internet capacity transmission problems with low crosstalk and attenuation. India is a data-hungry country, and with the help of the Internet, it's moving towards a strong economy and a digital India. A few years ago, no one knew that such a type of digitalization would occur and India would participate in it so rapidly. Currently, the world is moving towards basic phones to Smart Phones, Broadband, Wi-Fi equipment, Over the Top Platforms, IT Hub formation, and much more internet traffic is ongoing, so transmission with standard single-core cable is very tough. Multi Core Fiber (MCF) can resolve this problem. This article, looks at all of the options for multi-core fibers, particularly trench-assisted multi-core fibers.

Keywords

Multi Core Fiber (MCF), Trench Assisted, Low Crosstalk, High Capacity Transmission, Long Length Transmission.
