- A world record for high-capacity, long-haul transmission in standard diameter optical fibers was achieved in coupled-3-core multi-core fiber with characteristics similar to multi-mode fibers.
- The signal processing complexity is significantly reduced compared to multi-mode fibers.
- The fiber type is promising for early adoption in backbone high-capacity transmission systems as it can be cabled with the same technology.
