HICKORY, NC - Telecom equipment vendor CommScope launched a fiber optic cable solution, the Low Count Fiber Drop cable, designed for true one- or two-fiber drop applications in FTTx networks.

The Low Count Fiber Drop cable provides cable and multiservice operators the ability to deploy a fiber optic cable designed specifically for the drop portion of a network.

“FTTx cables can be used in various architectural approaches to outside plant designs,” says Doug Wells, vice president, outside plant solutions, CommScope. “Some operators are using expensive fiber optic drop cables containing up to 12 fibers that were designed to accommodate various applications that extend way beyond the true drop application. The Low Count Fiber Drop is a design uniquely focused on addressing the specific requirements in the tap to subscriber connection."

The Low Count Fiber Drop cable is a small (4 mm × 2 mm), lightweight (8 lbs per 1,000 ft) cable designed for easy handling and field preparations. The all-dielectric Low Count Fiber Drop cable also eliminates the time and cost associated with bonding and grounding. The innovative, gel-free solution fulfills this niche in the FTTx architecture.

The Low Count Fiber Drop cable was also designed to complement CommScope’s BrightPath Optical Solutions (BOS), which includes a full suite of headend, outside plant and end-user solutions for residential, MDU, commercial and cellular backhaul applications.
