Central Loose Tube
All-Dielectric Cable

Waveoptics® Loose tube all-dielectric cables are the most commonly-deployed outside plant cables, because of its price and its installation flexibility, since these cables can be installed both in aerial (lashed) installations as well as in ducts through the following techniques: air-blown, jetted or pulled into a duct.

PE single jacket with additives makes a resistant, durable and easy to strip cable, providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors.

Two ripcords ensure a quick fiber access.

The cable contains glass yarn that helps increase tensile strength.

Loose Tube Dielectric Armored Double Jacket Cable

Loose Tube Dielectric Armored
Double Jacket Cable

Waveoptics® Loose Tube Dielectric Armored Double Jacket Cable is an all-dielectric cable designed for aerial (lashed) and duct installations.

Special rodent deterrent HDPE outer jacket with additives makes a resistant, durable and easy to strip cable, providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors, with added hardness. The inner jacket is made of MDPE, since it is covered by the hard outer jacket and glass yarn armor.

Dielectric central strength member requires no bonding or grounding. Double jacket design and dielectric armoring made of glass yarns that offers improved mechanical properties, and acts as a small rodent deterrent, while maintaining flexibility.
