UG FTTP are all dielectric cables designed for Outside Plant (OSP) applications, specifically as a drop cable. The reduced diameter maximizes duct space and offers the lowest installed cost. The loose tube design offers reliable transmission performance over a broad temperature range. The single loose tube design features optical fibers placed inside a single PFM gel-filled tube. The core tube contains up to 12 optical fibers. The core tube is then helically wrapped with waterblocking strength members and encased with a black jacket. A rip cord is included to provide ease of access to the cable core.
