Superior Essex has announced the availability of four new Single Mode Fiber (SMF) cables.
Superior Essex announced the availability of four new singlemode fiber (SMF) cables designed for central offices and data centers. Product options include 6-, 12-, and 24-reduced water peak (RWP) SMF breakout cables and a 12-RWP SMF ribbon interconnect cable.
According to the company, the breakout cables consist of 6-, 12-, or 24- 2 mm simplex interconnect cable subunits supported by a central strength element. Each subunit is surrounded by aramid yarns and a flame retardant PVC riser-rated jacket, and is suited for attachment to small form factor connectors.
The ribbon interconnect cable is designed to connect directly to an MPO/MPT-style array connector. It can be used with array connectors on either side for a ribbon jumper cable, or as a transition cable with the array connector on one side and a high fiber count cable on the other. The cable consists of one 12-fiber ribbon surrounded by aramid yarns and a flame retardant PVC riser-rated jacket.
Both the Breakout and Ribbon Interconnect cable designs are fully compliant to GR-409, Issue 2 and ICEA-596.
