  • Patent number: 6859593
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of manufacturing an optical fiber ribbon comprising the following steps: arranging N groups of optical fibers so that the fibers in any one group are disposed in the same plane, applying a first layer of a first liquid resin settable under the action of UV type radiation onto each group of optical fibers to form first casings, applying a second layer of a second liquid resin settable under the action of UV type radiation disposed to link together the adjacent first casings, and applying a single irradiation step to the second layer and the first layers using UV type radiation in order to form the first matrices and to form the “link” second matrix.

  • Publication number: 20030118015
    Abstract: A wireless mobile terminal is alerted to the presence of an available Wireless Local Area Network by a communication network, based on the location of the mobile terminal. The mobile terminal alerts a wireless computing device, either via a wired or wireless interface, or by paging the user. Alternatively, the mobile terminal and the wireless computing device may form an integrated unit with interfaces to both the WLAN and the communication network. The wireless computing device initiates a scan for the WLAN, or logs onto the WLAN based on information transmitted to the mobile terminal. When the user is not in the range of a WLAN, the wireless computing device conserves battery power by not scanning for a WLAN. The communication network may additionally be connected to the WLAN for data exchange. The alert criteria may be customized and stored in a subscriber database at the communication network.

  • Patent number: 6175677
    Abstract: An optical fiber multi-ribbon and method for making the same is disclosed. The optical fiber multi-ribbon comprises N, where N is an integer greater than one, optical fiber ribbon members arranged in a common plane. Each of the N optical fiber ribbon members further comprise a plurality of optical fibers arranged in a planar array and an ultraviolet light curable primary matrix ribbonizing layer enveloping the plurality of optical fibers. The material forming the primary matrix ribbonizing layer of at least one of the N optical fiber ribbon members has a surface cure of at least about 80 percent. An ultraviolet light curable secondary matrix ribbonizing layer envelopes the primary matrix ribbonizing layers of the N optical fiber ribbon members. The secondary matrix ribbonizing layer material has a percent elongation to break greater than about 20 percent.

  • Patent number: 6035087
    Abstract: An optical unit (5a, 5b) comprising a plurality of optical fibers (2) grouped together in a tube (3a, 3b) and optionally assembled into one or more ribbons inside tube. The tube (3a, 3b) has a Young's modulus less than 200 MPa and a Shore A hardness less than 90 at a temperature of approximately +20.degree. C. and a Young's modulus less than 2000 MPa at a temperature of approximately -40.degree. C. A fiber optic cable (10, 20) comprising at least one such optical unit (5a, 5b). Application of the cable to telecommunications.
