Applications (Attenuation Fibers):

Communication systems field is one that has greatly contributed to the establishment of the communication grid, as well as the improvement of the electric power grid. Nowadays optical fiber cables are mainly utilized in the communication grid instead of metallic cables, and the field continues to manufacture a wide range of products that includes various trunk cables, to cables that transmits data to each home and peripheral equipment. From the communication infrastructure development in newly emerging countries to fine coaxial cables that are necessary for mobile phones, laptops and game consoles, the field is contributing to the realization of a totally ubiquitous society.

Optical fibers

Wide range of supplying following optical fibers
Low-water-peak single mode optical fiber 
Bending-loss insensitive single mode optical fiber

Optical fiber cables

Optical fiber cable having key role in the highly networked information society.
Showa's optical fiber cable used for trunk line systems which transmit with high-speed and capacity, cable connecting around metro area and regional user’s connection to optical network.

Optical connector assemblies

Optical fiber cable with connector and finished optical good connected to optical transmission devices.

LAN cables

Applied to 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet) Standard etc.

Network solution

Leakage coaxial cables

Used for reception of cable and Standard television signal and high-speed mobile telecommunications

  • These attenuation fibers are for fixed attenuators, such as SC, FC, ST, LC, MU type connectors.
  • The Attenuation Fiber of Showa Electric Wire & Cable Co., Ltd., which is formed of a core doped with cobalt is characterized by its refractive index profile and superior in the attenuation property.
