April 23, 2009--Fujikura Europe's C-Groove cable for FTTx installations enables fast access to fiber without compromising the structural integrity of the cable. The company says the technology provides access to individual fibers within minutes, creating a 50 percent reduction in installation time.

The C-Groove cable was developed in Japan to meet the demand for economical construction of access networks.

Fujikura's Easy Split bend-insensitive ribbon fiber, comprised of 48 encapsulated fibers, offers a smaller diameter than conventional loose tube cable, allowing for more space in fiber ducts. Once the outer coating is removed, the C-shaped core remains intact, and fibers can be removed from the open face of the C-Groove.

The 4-fiber ribbon inside the C-Groove cable can be separated into individual fibers using a de-ribbonizing tool, eliminating the need for mass fusion splicers and hot jacket strippers. Once the desired fibers have been extracted, the outer coating can be re-sealed by pressing the cover back over the cable.
