SOUTHAMPTON, UK: 21.07.08: Fibercore Limited, the World’s leading developer and manufacturer of specialty optical fibers and a UK subsidiary of Cisco Systems, Inc is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to quality and customer service by launching a customer focused guide to fiberoptic technology.

The Fibercore Reseller Manual dubbed 'The Fibercore Fiberpaedia' provides a wealth of easily accessible information and technical data and is designed to act as an invaluable aide memoir for anyone working with specialty optical fibers. Presented in an encyclopaedic format, the manual provides concise explanations and definitions of some of the most important fiber optic concepts and parameters which are all referenced in alphabetical order for ease of use.

Dr. Chris Emslie, Fibercore Limited’s Managing Director explains the rational for developing the Fiberpaedia: “We are in the business of making our customers’ lives easier. Our fundamental philosophy is to provide our customers with the exact products and services that they require and we back this up with highly responsive customer service and technical advice. Fibercore focuses on building strong, two-way consultative relationships and partnerships with its customers. The development of the Fiberpaedia is a logical step in this process providing an opportunity for us to share our extensive knowledge and experience that we have acquired over the last three decades working in this sector.

Dr. Emslie concludes, “The Fibercore Fiberpaedia was so well received by our resellers and customers in the initial rollout that we have decided to make it available to anyone with an interest in specialty fiber technology.”
