Features and Benefits N/A
  • Totally gel-free fiber optic cable design for cleaner, faster installations
  • A significantly lighter weight cable for faster and easier deployment
  • AccuRibbon core maximizes optical fibers per duct and supports mass-fusion splicing
  • Metallic and dielectric sheath options support lashed aerial, direct buried, and duct installations
  • Deploy up to 432 optical fibers in a one-inch ID duct
  • RDUP (formerly RUS) listed; compliant with ANSI/ICEA, Telcordia Technologies, and IEC specifications for reliable performance
  • Available with OFS AllWave® Zero Water Peak (ZWP) Single-Mode Optical Fiber, as well as TrueWave® RS Low Water Peak (LWP) Single- Mode Optical Fibers
N/A
  • Low optical loss across the entire 1260-1625 nm spectrum
  • 50% greater usable spectrum than conventional single-mode fiber
  • Reduced bend loss across the bend-sensitive 1460-1625 nm S, C and L Bands
  • Industry's tightest geometric control for ultra-low splice loss and improved connector performance
  • High purity synthetic silica for long-term attenuation stability and mechanical reliability
  • Ultra-low fiber PMD for speed and distance upgrades
N/A
  • Improved bend performance saves space, time and money even for L-Band wavelengths up to 1625 nm
  • ZWP Fiber for 50% increase in usable optical spectrum enables 16-channel CWDM and DWDM support
  • Coiled into a 10 mm radius loop, fiber incurs loss of < 0.5 dB at 1625 nm and < 0.2 dB at 1550 nm
  • Easier to install, handle and store in space-constrained applications
  • Tight geometry for very low splice loss and improved connector performance
N/A
  • 50% increase in usable optical spectrum enables 16-channel CWDM and DWDM support
  • Minimizes attenuation across the full wavelength spectrum and provides low, stable loss in the 1400 nm band
  • Ultra-low PMD allows speed and distance upgrades
  • Macrobend performance superior to the G.652.D standard
  • Long-term attenuation reliability by using high-purity synthetic silica
N/A
  • Totally gel-free fiber optic cable design for cleaner, faster installations
  • Easy to handle and install
  • Highly durable and reliable for duct and lashed aerial installations (including duct-to-lashed aerial) as well as general OSP installations
  • Smaller, more flexible buffer tubes for easier installation and routing
  • Optical fiber counts to 288
  • RDUP (formerly RUS) listed and compliant with ANSI/ICEA, Telcordia, and IEC specifications for reliable performance
  • Available with OFS AllWave® Zero Water Peak (ZWP) Single-Mode Optical Fiber, TrueWave® RS LWP Single-Mode Optical Fiber, and multimode optical fibers
  • Light Armor and Armored Versions provide added protection from rodent attack
