AFL says OSP MicroCore cable now accommodates up to 432 fibers
With a 12.6-mm outer diameter, the 432-fiber OSP MicroCore is among the industry's smallest high-fiber count fiber-optic cables, contends the company.
AFL has expanded its OSP MicroCore air-jetted fiber-optic cable product line with the introduction of its 432-fiber Telcordia GR-20 compliant MicroCore cable. According to the company, with a 12.6-mm outer diameter, the 432-fiber OSP MicroCore is among the industry's smallest high-fiber count fiber-optic cables, with a stranded core geometry designed for easy mid-span access and fiber express through applications typically used in the FTTx market.
AFL asserts that its OSP MicroCore technology combines the latest in cable material and design engineering. According to the company, durable and easy to handle, the new OSP MicroCore cable is capable of withstanding over 300 pounds of tensile load bearing, and is suitable in operating temperature ranges found in most outside plant FTTx environments. With its ease of use and upgradeability, the OSP MicroCore cable is targeted for outside plant installations, campus inter-building backbone distribution deployments, and low-cost fiber upgrade migration strategies, says the company.
“AFL’s new 432-fiber OSP MicroCore fiber-optic cable offers network designers greater flexibility in deploying multi-microduct optical pathway infrastructures that are easily upgradeable and cost-effective,” comments Stephen Martin, product manager for AFL. “Given our extended product line offering, from 12 to 432 fibers, we are able to provide solutions for a multitude of applications.”
