1 1 NCS - UniCam UniCam® Connector - Technology

2 2 NCS - UniCam UniCam ® Connector - Technology s Factory-assembled and polished fiber stub s Connects to field fiber with mechanical splice s Connector contains index matching gel for consistent results Cross View Available as LC,SC,ST ® comp., FC, MT-RJ und MTP ® ; Multimode and Single-Mode

3 3 NCS - UniCam You save Time Installation in 1/3 of the time required for epoxy-polish connectors No glue-dispensing, curing, nor polishing Easy to use, easy to learn Repair, Moves, Adds and Changes can be completed in a fraction of the time required with other technologies Technology designed for field installation UniCam ® Connector - Technology

4 4 NCS - UniCam You save Money No need to purchase expensive special devices such as ovens or fusion splicers No expiring consumables (polishing film, compounds with limited shelf life, splice protection …) One assembly tool for all 1- and 2-fiber connectors Extremely low scrap rate System is (back) online in less time Technology designed for field installation UniCam ® Connector - Technology

5 5 NCS - UniCam Technology designed for field installation You minimize Risks Easy and reliable assembly through on-line functional testing with Continuity Test System (CTS) Independent form local infrastructure (power, workspace) Available for all common connector types High quality and repeatability assured through assembly tool factory-polished connector end face UniCam ® Connector - Technology

6 6 NCS - UniCam Connector Endface Quality – Benefits of Industrial Polish Repeatable high Quality of - Curvature, Apex, Protrusion, Centricity (ensures physical contact) - Surface finish (avoids damage on mating connectors inflicted by chips and scratches) guarantees superior performance for Insertion loss and Reflectance ! UniCam ® Connector - Technology Machine - Polished Manually - Polished

7 7 NCS - UniCam Performance at High Data Rates and in Analog Systems UniCam vs. Pigtails at 10/40Gbps and analog Video transmission Test Scenarios: Campus/Building Backbone 1. Point-to-Point, 300m 2. Point-to-Point, 3000m 3. Meshed network, 6000m 4. Point-to-Point, 12000m Digital Tests: 10Gbps: λ = 1310nm; IEEE GBASE-LR PMD Transceiver, BER ≤ Pin = -14,4dBm with PRBS31 40Gbps: λ = 1550nm WDM 4x 10Gb/s; BER ≤ at receiver input optical power Pin = -8dBm with PRBS31 (Scenarios 3 and 4 with DCF) Variable optical attenuator used to set optical power levels Analog Video Tests: λ = 1550nm; 77 channels multiplexed in 50 – 550MHz band; Three channels separated using a 6MHz-bandpass filter CNR measured with spectrum analyzer: CATV standard defines CNR ≥ 43dB Abbreviations: BER = Bit Error Rate CNR = Carrier-to-Noise Ratio DCF = Dispersion Compensation Fiber PMD = Physical Media Dependent PRBS = Pseudo-Random Bit Sequence WDM = Wavelength Division Multiplexing Single-Mode Connectors: UniCam SC: Return loss 40dB for Digital, 40dB / 55dB for Analog Fusion-spliced Pigtails SC: Return loss 55dB for Digital and Analog UniCam ® Connector - Performance

8 8 NCS - UniCam Performance at High Data Rates and in Analog Systems UniCam vs. Pigtails at 10/40Gbps Test Results: System performance with UniCam ® is equivalent to that with spliced pigtails. Both systems show high margin to specification limits. FUSION-SPLICED PIGTAIL UNICAM CONNECTOR UniCam ® Connector - Performance

9 9 NCS - UniCam UniCam vs. Pigtails at analog Video transmission Test Results: System performance with UniCam ® is equivalent to that with spliced pigtails. Both systems show high margin to specification limits. UniCam ® Connector - Performance

10 10 NCS - UniCam Harsh Environments: Dust and Dirt UniCam-Connectors are s manufactured and filled in clean-room environments s Protected with Caps on both, endface and splice side Precautions during installation: s Remove dust caps only at time of actual assembly s Prepare fiber only after insertion of the connector in the assembly too Physical protection in the application is assured by panels and housings with appropriate protection levels (irrespective of deployed connector technology) UniCam ® Connector - Performance

11 11 NCS - UniCam Harsh Environments: Vibrations UniCam Connectors are subject to the same Qualification Tests as Epoxy / Polish Connectors Vibration Tests: s Frequency: 10Hz … 55Hz s Amplitude: 0,75 to 1,5mm s Vibrations in x-, y- and z- axes UniCam provides 3 levels of protection against physical stress s Fiber arrest in CAM splice s Crimp retention on 900µm tight buffer with tensile strength 4,4N s Strain relief on 1,6/2/3mm cable: 44N UniCam complies with IEC and Telcordia GR-326 UniCam ® Connector - Performance

12 12 NCS - UniCam Harsh Environments: Temperature Changes Temperature Ranges s Installation of 900um Tight Buffer cable -40°C … 70°C s Installation of 250um fibers in Fanout 0°C … 70°C with indoor fanout kit (FAN-BT) -40°C … 70°C with outdoor fanout kit (FAN-OD) (special material with matched temperature coefficients) UniCam ® Connector - Performance

13 13 NCS - UniCam s Since 1978 applied in the Fiber-Optic Industry s Chemically stable substance s No shelf time limitation s CCS Longevity Evaluation (stress tests) Temperature Cycling: -40°C …+80°C; 200 cycles Thermal aging: +80°C, 21 days Thermal shock: +60°C to -40°C, 10 cycles, transition time less than one minute Results Equilibrium water content < 100ppm (no impact on fiber performance) No particles or inclusions (no impairment of optical transmission) High viscosity (gel does not leak from the splice chamber) Optically clear over time (no additional optical attenuation) High surface tension (fills voids during fiber movement) s Lifetime expectation according to a SWISSCOM study (1999): > 200 Years Corning has been using Index-Matching Gel in their products since 1989 Corning has been using Index-Matching Gel in their products since 1989 Corning provides a 25 Years’ Performance Warranty in their EWP Installer Program UniCam ® Connector - Performance

14 14 NCS - UniCam Summary Quick and Easy Assembly Functional Testing during Installation Extremely low Scrap Rate No Consumables Continuous high Quality, Reliability and Lifetime High Performance in demanding Applications More than 40 Million sold and successfully installed connectors make More than 40 Million sold and successfully installed connectors make UNICAM ® the No. 1 Field-Installable Connector System.
