The 396FO (11x36) Air Blown Fiber Microduct Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 Grey (Part number: EE2M21A00039600N) from Cablescom with 396FO. 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 396FO (11x36) Air Blown Fiber Microduct Loose Tube Fiber Optic Cable SM G.657.A1 Grey from Cablescom is a Air Blown Fiber Microduct cable with 396 fibers within 11 loose tubes. This micro distribution cable for optical networks with a reduced nominal diameter, has a loose tube structure with PBT tubes filled with a thixotropic compound. A high density polyethylene sheath with incorporated non-metallic reinforcements and water-blocking tape and/or yarns, allows high blowing distance due to the excellent friction properties of the outer sheath (approx. 1500 m depending on way route) and avoids water propagation. The optical fibers comply with ITU-T recommendations G.657.A1.
For outdoor use; For access, distribution, city network and FTTx applications. It is designed to be rapidly installed by blowing in 8 or 10 mm ID microducts. These cables are used for medium or long distance telecommunications networks.
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.
