Product Description

The 48FO (6x8) Duct Flex Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 Dielectric (Part number: 60017108) from Prysmian with 48FO. Conduit cables are underground cables, that may be conducted by duct or buried directly into the ground. There are several types of protections for this cable such as anti-rodent or double protection. Conduit cables are built to withstand harsh environments and are typically routed by pull or blow.

The 48FO (6x8) Duct Flex Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 Dielectric from Prysmian is a Duct cable with 48 fibers within 6 flex tubes. This distribution cable for optical networks has a micromodule structure (flex tube construction) with a HDPE outer sheath with with reinforcement yarns and glass fiber plastic material. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recomendations G.657A1.


For outdoor use; Installation in ducts. The flexible micro-modules provide easier storage & faster installation and access to the fibers without specific tools.

Fiber Type (ITU) - OS2 G.657.A1

Each type of single-mode fiber has its own area of application, and the evolution of these optical fiber specifications reflects the evolution of transmission system technology from the earliest installation of single-mode optical fiber to the present day. Choose the right fiber is very important for each project/installation. The OS2 G.657 standard single-mode fibers were developed to allow a better bending radius regarding the G.652 standard. For the OS2 G.657 fiber there are 4 subcategories: G.657.A1, G.657.A2, G.657.B2, G.657.B3. The G.657.A1 fiber type is characterized by 10 mm minimum bending radius. These specifications of the G.657 fibers allow to have a better cost-efficiency due to compact cable designs and reduced space requirements.

FOC Construction - Flex tube

While using a flex tube construction in cables, you can:

  • Reduced installation time;
  • Easier handling, particularly in fiber distribution and termination units;
  • Fast access to fibers; easy to remove the module material with no tools required;
  • Small quantity of grease, minimizing clean-up time;
  • Avoid the risk of tube kinking (potentially causing attenuation increments or fiber breakage);
  • Simple mid-span breakout enabling single module extraction to aid distribution.

The cable flex tube construction solution can be chosen for the following applications:

  • Direct buried;
  • Rodent resistant;
  • Gunshot resistant;
  • Facade;
  • Indoor and outdoor;
  • Hybrid;
  • Underwater;
  • Tunnel.
