Micropol Fiberoptic receives first order for new expanded beam connector, transferring 40Gbit/s

Micropol Fiberoptic is pleased to announce that the first orders for the recently introduced 40Gbit/s version of the FALCON expanded beam connector has been received from UK customer Mercury Computer Systems.

As far as known, the FALCON is the only expanded beam connector on the market that are approved to transfer 40Gbit/s over one channel.

The increasing demand for fiber optics with more transmission capacity for use in harsh environments are driven by the need for more data to be transferred over longer distances. As an example, coaxial communication has limited ability to transfer e.g. high resolution radar pictures over longer distances. The combination offered by FALCON is powerful – the robustness of the expanded beam technology, transferring large data volumes.
