  • Used in trunking, LAN and distribution applications where versatile installation capability is required for ducts, plenums, and air-handling spaces
  • Design allows subcables to be routed to multiple locations such as wiring racks and closets
  • Suitable for both indoor plenum and outdoor installation – no need to splice outdoor cable to indoor cable at the building entrance
  • 900μm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices, because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • No need to splice outdoor cable to indoor cable at building entrance
  • High crush resistance may eliminate the need for innerduct

Applications
