Description

FTTH Figure 8 Drop Cable FRP Messenger

Waveoptics® FTTH Figure 8 Drop Cable is an economical, small factor, self-supporting cable, optimal for indoor/outdoor applications and is ideal for longer distance external use, compared to FTTH Drop Cable. The flat design offers easy stripping with no tools, simplifying the installation process.

For self-supporting applications, a FRP Coated with EAA is incorporated.

The optical fiber is positioned in the center of the cable, parallel KFRP´s (Kevlar Fiber Reinforced Plastic) or FRP´s (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) rods located on both sides as reinforcement against crushing and traction forces, protecting the fibers.
