September 18, 2008--Prysmian's CasaLight Xtreme bend optimized fiber is targeted at the most demanding FTTH applications, where extreme bending radii are unavoidable. It is designed for horizontal cabling from the riser shaft to the first point of presence into the customer premises, where the pathway would encounter bending radii down to 7.5 mm.
In the most demanding applications, CasaLight Xtreme allows for bending radii down to 5 mm, and has been designed to withstand 90 degree bends under tension as well as installation with staple guns when used in Prysmian specialty MDU cables. It maintains full compatibility with standard equipment, connectors, and fiber already installed in accordance with ITU Recommendation G.652.Hi.
