Short and long haul backbone applications
High strength stranded loose tube cable is ideal long haul backbone applications and is typically used by telecommunication carriers in applications where the cable is being installed in rocky or expansive soils. The water blocked, dry cable core design suits point to point and point-multipoint fibre installations where spur cables are spliced from the backbone. Whilst the Nylon is UV stabilisied, AFL recommends the use of an additional sacrificial black PE jacket where the cable will be directly exposed to UV rays.
The tubes and fillers are laid around a central strength member, taped and contained within a dry, water blocked cable core which is sheathed with polyethylene (PE) and insect resistant Nylon.
