Abstract : A ferromagnetic material on an optical fiber assures that the fiber is held in a proper position on a spool by a magnetic field. This stabilizes the optical fiber during winding to permit an automation of the spooling process and provides a constant force for holding the spooled optical fiber during storage. The constant and predictable holding force helps assure a constant and predictable peel force during deployment of the optical fiber.
