The OFS MiDia® FX® PLUS Cable is a reduced diameter cable that can help dramatically lower the cost of fiber optic deployment while maximizing capacity in congested  metropolitan  networks.  Specifically  designed  for air-blown installation using microduct systems, MiDia FX PLUS Cable is size-optimized for fi ber counts up to 144.

To construct this all-dielectric cable, the optical fibers are placed  in  space-effi cient,  gel-filled  buffer  tubes  that  protect  the  fibers.  The  color-coded  tubes  are  then  stranded around a dielectric central member using the reverse oscillating  lay  (ROL)  stranding  technique  for  easy,  mid-span fiber  access.  DryBlock® water-blocking  material  is  then applied  for  exceptional  water  penetration  resistance  and faster  cable  preparation.  A  ripcord  and  a  highly  durable polyethylene (PE) jacket complete the cable construction.
