AFL and Dura-Line Launch Blown Fiber Cabling Solution

  • Dura-Line
SPARTANBURG, SC - AFL and Dura-Line have joined together to develop Enterprise Air-Blown Fiber (eABF), a high-performance, blown fiber optic cabling system, which is engineered to offer a reliable, easy-to-integrate optical fiber network communications infrastructure. With one of the highest fiber density solutions in the blown fiber market, the eABF solution has several key elements that, when combined yield a highly flexible, future-proof communications pathway.

Ideal for data centers, private networks, high-rise buildings, urban and medical campuses, the eABF solution is NEC 770 compliant for both raceways and ducts. A fully integrated solution, the eABF cabling solution comes complete with AFL connectivity, closures, enclosures, patch cords and connectors, fusion splicers and test equipment. The solution also includes design, Bill of Materials and SOW support, contractor training and project management.

Integrated Cable and Ducts
The core of the eABF solution is the cable and duct. One of the unique features of the cable is the low-friction, high-drag jacketing system that enables the cable to move along the duct at a faster rate of speed. In addition, the eABF cable is Telcordia GR-409 compliant and flame-rated for OFNR and OFNP environments. As a result, the cable can be deployed within the cable raceway and management system once exiting the pathway without the need for additional costly furcation tubing. The cable geometry makes it ideal for installation in the Dura-Line 8.5 mm x 6 mm Enterprise FuturePath system and is available in fiber counts up to 48 fibers. Fiber types include single-mode, OM2, OM3 and OM4 employing bend insensitive fiber technology.

The eABF pathway system, developed by Dura-Line, is comprised of Enterprise FuturePath duct products and includes Indoor/Outdoor HDPE, riser, plenum and low-smoke zero halogen (LSZH) options. All eABF ducts incorporate a low-contact, ribbed inner surface and ultra-low friction Silicore lining which creates a low drag, high velocity cable jetting channel within the duct. Unlike other air-blown fiber systems in the market, the eABF cable-duct combination also allows for installations, without the use of air, up to 1,000 feet. The eABF FuturePath duct comes in a variety of sizes and tube counts ranging from two through 25.
