We realized single-mode hole-assisted optical fiber (HAF) cord whose fiber has a superior bending loss characteristic that complies with ITU-T Recommendation G. 657 for use in highly reliable optical fiber distribution facilities in central offices. The cord has an excellent anti-shock characteristic, and can be scanned by a conventional optical fiber cord identifier despite its very low bending loss. Experiments show that the single-mode HAF cord and its application to optical signal distribution in a central office can provide highly service reliability.
