Q: What is bend-insensitive optical glass?

A: Bend-insensitive optical glass is a relatively new breed of glass designed to be accommodate very small radius bends. Obviously the cable design will impact just how much the cable can be safely bent, but performance of the glass is no longer a significant restriction when bending the cable. Small diameter cables with bend-insensitive glass can be wrapped around a small around something as small as a pencil and not display any noticeable signal degradation.
