Outdoor distribution cable for duct or aerial lash installations along utility poles for cable television, telecom or other outside plant campus backbone applications

Applications

  • Outdoor distribution cable for duct or aerial lash installations along utility poles for cable television, telecom or other outside plant campus backbone applications

Features

  • Tight-buffered construction for easy, direct connector termination or splicing
  • Polyethylene outer cable jacket for excellent UV and weather resistance
  • High performance tight-buffer on the optical fibers for excellent environmental and mechanical protection
  • Wide operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C
  • 900µm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • All-dielectric design does not require grounding or bonding
