Full Spectrum, Bend Optimized, Low Loss, One Fiber


AllWave® One Zero Water Peak (ZWP) Single-Mode Optical Fiber combines three benefits in one fiber that improves metro, access and long haul network performance compared to conventional ITU-T G.652.D single-mode fiber.  It goes beyond OFS’ award winning AllWave Fiber with a 15% lower loss specification at 1550 nm, a 40% smaller minimum bend radius, a 67% lower bend loss, and a 33% improved Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) link design value. AllWave One Fiber intermixes seamlessly with the installed base of single-mode fibers having a nominal mode field diameter of 9.2 µm.

Product Description

AllWave One Fiber reliably performs in demanding networks with specifications superior to both the ITU-T G.652.D and G.657.A1 Recommendations. Developed and manufactured by OFS, AllWave One Fiber provides very low and stable spectral loss throughout the entire operating window from 1260 nm to 1625 nm. The fiber features attenuation of less than or equal to 0.33 dB/km at 1310 nm and 0.18 dB/km at 1550 nm providing extra margin and/or extended reach for demanding applications. OFS’ patented ZWP fiber manufacturing process, which eliminates hydrogen-aging defects, provides almost 30% lower attenuation versus G.652.D-compliant fibers in the E-band.


  • ≤ 0.18 dB/km loss at 1550 nm, with low optical loss across the entire spectrum from 1260 nm – 1625 nm for longer reach and improved service reliability.
  • 33% better macrobend loss than the G.657.A1 Recommendation for improved performance and service reliability, and to help reduce the size of cables and terminals
  • A 9.2 µm nominal mode field diameter to facilitate splicing and testing
  • Comprised of high purity synthetic silica for long-term attenuation stability and mechanical reliability
  • Ultra-low fiber PMD to help speed and distance upgrades
  • Geometric control at the industry’s tightest level for ultra-low splice loss and improved connector performance


AllWave One Fiber provides outstanding cable performance for the entire optical network including:

  • FTTX
  • Local access
  • Mobile backhaul
  • Metro access
  • Metro edge
  • Campus backbones
  • Long haul
