FTTH Figure 8 Drop Cable

Waveoptics® FTTH Figure 8 Drop Cable is an economical, small factor, self-supporting cable, optimal for indoor/outdoor applications and is ideal for longer distance external use, compared to FTTH Drop Cable. The flat design offers easy stripping with no tools, simplifying the installation process.

For self-supporting applications, a galvanized steel messenger consisting of 7 steel wires with a total diameter of 1.2 mm is incorporated.

The optical fiber is positioned in the center of the cable, parallel KFRP´s (Kevlar Fiber Reinforced Plastic) or FRP´s (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) rods located on both sides as reinforcement against crushing and traction forces, protecting the fibers.



  Not Applicable for G652.D fiber type
