How to convert multimode optical fibers into singlemode to support growing bandwidth demands?

"Digital communications within local networks are undergoing rapid expansion and occupying an increasingly important role.

This evolution in communication modes has a direct influence on supporting infrastructures. In order to support this expansion and any congestion issues that may arise, networks need to be more efficient.

In response, an innovative technology based on Multi-Plane Light Conversion (MPLC) overcomes the bandwidth limitation of multimode fibers, which constitute the backbone of many LANs.

To understand MPLC fully, it is important to understand the current fiber landscape, the intricacies of multimode optical fiber, and how the technology has been used at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) campus for its OM1 (62.5/125 μm) upgrade.[...]"
