With the new EZ-Bend® 3.0 Ruggedized Cable, users have expanded options for MDU, in-home wiring and aggressive, space-constrained routing environments. When a low profile and durability are needed, select the new 3.0 mm product. For more demanding deployments, the EZ-Bend® 4.8 Ruggedized Cable is ideal. EZ-Bend® cables are offered in indoor/outdoor, riser, plenum, and dual-rated low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) constructions, and can be routed around corners and stapled using traditional fast and easy copper wire installation practices, with negligible signal loss.

  • 3.0 and 4.8 diameter ruggedized cordage
  • Less than 0.1 dB macrobending attenuation at 1550 nm for 1 turn at 5 mm fiber bend radius
  • Less than 0.3 dB macrobending attenuation at 1550 nm when subjected to MDU Simulation Test called out by Verizon TPR.9424 FOC Document
  • Solid construction fiber with macrobending performance far better than ITU G.657B requirements
  • Backward compatible with installed G.652D fibers
  • Conform to UL® Riser and Plenum fire ratings
  • Compliant with Telcordia 409 & ICEA S-83-596 requirements
  • Dry water-blocked core to protect against water ingress
  • Reinforced solid jacket construction naturally limits cable bending to control macrobending attenuation and protect fiber reliability
  • "Copper-like" installation process: Can be routed around corners using familiar copper wire practices, and stapled
  • Faster, easier installation: no extra steps to install bend limiters, conduits, or raceways
  • Compact installation and storage: Conforms to building; slack fits in small spaces
  • Fast, easy, low loss splicing to G.652D fiber with existing core and clad aligned splice equipment
  • Familiar, standard connector termination: Solid fiber construction can be terminated using standard optical connectors and polishing techniques
  • Familiar connector endface cleaning using same process as with existing G.652 solid construction fiber
  • Greener Solution: Free of heavy metals and RoHS-compliant; solution uses fewer total materials and energy than copper solutions
