Product Description
When you need a compact yet highly dense cabling solution for Data Centers or other highdensity, high-bandwidth applications, look to the R-Pack Rollable Ribbon (RR) Backbone Cable. This cable’s special design combines plenum-rated materials with rollable fiber optic ribbons to create a very compact, yet robust and fiber-dense cable.

The R-Pack RR Backbone Cable features 24, 48 or 72 250 micron (μm) optical fibers in a unique rollable ribbon structure. The rollable ribbons open into preorganized ribbon packages that help to speed termination and reduce fiber crossovers.

Why the R-Pack Rollable Ribbon Backbone Cable?

Featuring rollable ribbons, the newest optical fiber technology from OFS, allows the R-Pack RR Backbone Cable to offer twice the fiber density when compared to a
traditional flat ribbon premises cable. This design results in a very compact, fiber-dense and robust cable that helps customers to substantially improve fiber routing and save on space in demanding and congested pathways.

The Rollable Ribbons can be rolled and routed similarly to individual bare fibers and also spliced like a traditional fiber ribbon. This ribbon design offers the advantages of both traditional flat fiber ribbons and loose fibers - it helps to facilitate efficient, cost-effective mass fusion splicing while also allowing easy individual fiber breakout. It also helps to support rapid multifiber terminations and installations.

While the R-Pack RR Backbone Cable meets stringent Telcordia GR-409 standards for horizontal backbone applications, its plenum construction also meets NFPA 202 requirements for use in many demanding building applications. In fact, this cable can be used in a broad range of application spaces or to construct assemblies.

With its versatile design and excellent performance, the R-Pack RR Backbone Cable is a natural choice for use in Data Centers, Central Offices and Fiber-to-the-Business (FTTB) applications.
