Description

Distribution Cable

Waveoptics® Distribution Cables are designed for indoor applications, field connectorization, telecommunications rooms and data centers. Thick outer jacket protects the fibers during installation.

The optical fibers are under a protective cover made of acrylate and a tight buffer. The tight buffers are colored for easy identification. Aramid yarn as a strength member to provide excellent tensile strength during installation.
