Pierside Cables


  • Ship-to-shore communications in a fiber optic cable meeting the requirements of NAVSEA specification 7379173
  • Cables designed to be integrated with OCC's Pierside connectors designed to meet NAVSEA 7379171 specification


  • Dual jacketed, 12-fiber cable with 4 single-mode and 8 multimode fibers is designed to the NAVSEA 7379173 specification
  • 2-, 4-, 6-, and 8-fiber cables are designed with the NAVSEA 739173 specification as a guide. See the Cable Characteristics section for cable performance requirements
  • Available in hybrid single-mode and multimode fiber combinations, with fibers appropriate to the performance characteristics required by the application
  • Compatible with Pierside connectors as defined in NAVSEA 739171 (see OCC Pierside Connectors in the Military/Harsh Environment Connectors section 10.0 of the catalog)
  • Polyurethane jacket provides durability in harsh environments encountered on ships and docks
  • Polyurethane jacketed for abrasion, cut, crush, impact and chemical resistance
  • Second layer of aramid yarns provides the necessary strain-relief for multichannel hermaphroditic connectors
  • Extremely strong, lightweight, rugged, survivable tight-buffered design
  • Breakout cable design utilizes individual color-coded subcables that protect each individual fiber and have their own aramid for capture to the crimp on the terminus when desired
  • Special jacket colors available to distinguish (at a glance) from other Pierside cables and utilities
  • Triple thickness fiber acrylate coating, three layers of aramid yard, and three individual cable jackets provide the ultimate in fiber protection
  • Suitable for daisy chain over-the-deck, on-the-pier, and through-the-ship nested ship deployments
  • Helically stranded cable core for flexibility, deployment survivability and exceptional mechanical protection for the optical fibers
  • Wide temperature ranges for adverse conditions
  • Excellent for use in deployment/retrieval applications
  • 2.0mm subcables standard
  • Compatible with OCC's Pierside hermaphroditic connectors in Section 10.2
