The 12FO (1x12) Air Blown Fiber Microduct Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 (Part number: 60060978) from Prysmian with 12FO. 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 12FO (1x12) Air Blown Fiber Microduct Fiber Optic Cable G.657.A1 from Prysmian is a Microduct Blowable Fiber cable with 12 fibers within 1 loose tube. This distribution cable for optical networks has a loose tube structure and a polyethylene halogen-free outer sheath with aramid yarns as Strength members. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recomendations G.657A1.
For outdoor use. Installation in ducts and microducts by blowing 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.
While using a loose tube construction in cables, you can:
The loose tube construction solution can be chosen for the following applications:
Single mode fiber uses a LASER light source, is a type of optical fiber with a small core diameter that allows only one mode of light to propagate. It is used in telecommunications and data transmission systems to transmit signals over long distances with low attenuation and high bandwidth. Single mode fiber is ideal for high-speed and long-distance applications, such as internet backbone networks, cable television networks, and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services. Its narrow core reduces the dispersion of light, allowing signals to travel further and faster than with multimode fiber.
