The DuctSaver® Rollable Ribbon (RR) Cable features 72, 144, 288, or 432 optical fibers in a gel-free, central core cable design. This cable features rollable ribbons, the newest optical fiber ribbon design from OFS. To form these ribbons, individual 250 μm fibers are partially bonded to each other at predetermined points. The cable design features a central tube construction with helical strength elements for durable protection and superior coiling performance to alternative products.

Why the DuctSaver Rollable Ribbon (RR) Cable?
The DuctSaver RR Cable’s rollable ribbon design helps users to achieve highly efficient and cost-effective mass fusion splicing along with easy individual fiber breakout. This capability helps to simplify installation and save on labor costs. In addition, the DuctSaver RR Cable’s greater fiber density can help to expand the capacity of existing pathways using smaller, lower-cost duct systems.

The DuctSaver RR Cable’s ribbons may be “rolled” (compacted) and routed like individual fibers to facilitate use in smaller closures and splice trays.
In addition, this cable’s completely gel-free water-blocking design also helps to reduce the time required to prepare cable ends which can also help with reduced labor and splice costs.

With its ability to maximize duct utilization, the DuctSaver RR Cable is an excellent choice for connecting very large fiber distribution hubs. It is also highly suitable for use in data centers, FTTx and access networks.
