Fiber Optic Cable Reduces Installation Costs

Designed to reduce installation costs and construction time, the fiber optic Pavement Cable employs a gel-filled central tube cable encased in a smooth-wall, welded copper armor that provides fiber protection and water blocking characteristics. The cable is described as rugged in design with reliable crush resistance and thermal stability while providing tensile performance compatible with standard micro-trenching techniques. Sharp edges are minimized, providing fiber protection during cable access and termination. Available with up to 72 fibers, the cable requires a 10-mm wide by 8-cm deep groove to be cut for installation. For more details, contact Steve Bailey at COMMSCOPE INC., Hickory, NC.
