The 96FO (8x12) Air Blown Fiber Microduct Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 (Part number: 60050332) from Prysmian with 96FO. Air blown microduct fiber cable is optimised for injection into microducts and is used in optical networks, more specifically for use in Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and Fiber-to-the-Desk (FTTD) networks. This technique that is lower at cost, quicker and more environmentally friendly than traditional deployment, allowing a simpler instalation with less resources.
The 96FO (8x12) Air Blown Fiber Microduct Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 from Prysmian is a Air Blown Fiber Microduct cable with 96 fibers within 8 loose tubes. This distribution cable for optical networks has a loose tube structure with loose tube mini cables stranded around the central element (Fibre Reinforced Plastic) and a high density polyethylene sheath with 2 ripcords underneath.There are fillers between stranded tubes and sheath to improve mechanical characteristics. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recomendations G.657A1.
For outdoor use, Installation in ducts and micro ducts by blowing or pulling techniques.
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.
