General objective Reduce the differential modal delay of multimode optical fiber by splicing low-mode optical fiber to improve the performance of short-haul optical networks. Justification In recent decades, the continuous growth of broadband networks has led to an increase in the traffic that these networks support, especially internet bandwidth, as a result of new web applications, interactive online maps, social networks, video streaming, mobile internet among others; this is pushing for higher transmission speeds especially in home and data center networks where multimode fiber is preferred. Achieving speeds ranging from 10 Gbps to 400 Gbps is a challenge in these networks, which makes them ideal for easy coupling to legacy networks for upgrades. Therefore, FMF optical fiber will compensate for modal dispersion since it has well-defined modes. , as well as improving the signal to noise ratio due to the fact that the energy of higher modes will be used, improving the performance in WDM systems due to having less non-linearities, reducing the complexity in the connectorization, all this due to its larger diameter; In addition, it allows migrating towards these new fibers with the least possible impact on its infrastructure and its cost.
