AFL Enhances Its MicroCore Fiber Optic Cable Series

SPARTANBURG, SC – AFL, a manufacturer of fiber optic cable, accessories and equipment, enhanced its current MicroCore product line by adding Ruggedized MicroCore and Ruggedized MicroCore with SpiderWeb Ribbon Technology to its offering. An ideal alternative to traditional inside plant central loose tube ribbon cable, both cables eliminate concerns associated with edge fiber stresses due to preferential bend of encapsulated ribbons.

"AFL Ruggedized MicroCore cables represent the highest fiber density solutions available allowing for maximum cable pathway utilization,” commented Michael Houck, product manager for inside plant cables at AFL. “SpiderWeb Ribbon options allow for ease of mass fusion splicing field installable connectors such as AFL’s FUSEConnect and works seamlessly with AFL’s Wrapping Tube Cable OSP trunk cables.”

Ruggedized MicroCore cables consist of an OFNP/FT6 (NFPA 262) or LSZH (including ONFR-LS/FT4/CPR B2ca Rating) flame-rated outer jacket with an installation tension rating of 150 pounds and are qualified to meet and exceed the requirements of the latest Telcordia GR-409-CORE inside plant cabling requirements. Applications include headend termination to a fiber backbone, termination of fiber rack systems, intra-building backbones, MTP/MPO or MTP to breakout terminations.
