Buried FTTP cables are designed for Outside Plant (OSP) applications, specifically as a drop cable. The reduced diameter maximizes duct space and offers additional armoring protection. The loose tube design offers reliable transmission performance over a broad temperature range. The rugged 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 water-blocking strength members. A corrugated aluminum armor is applied and encased with a black jacket. Rip cords are included under the armor for ease of access to the core tube. This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is here for archival purposes.
