Loose Tube All-Dielectric Cable

Waveoptics® Loose tube all-dielectric cables are the most commonly-deployed outside plant cables, because of its price and its installation flexibility, since these cables can be installed both in aerial (lashed) installations as well as in ducts through the following techniques: air-blown, jetted or pulled into a duct.

Loose Tube All-Dielectric Cable

Waveoptics® Loose tube all-dielectric cables are the most commonly-deployed outside plant cables, because of its price and its installation flexibility, since these cables can be installed both in aerial (lashed) installations as well as in ducts through the following techniques: air-blown, jetted or pulled into a duct.

PE single jacket with additives makes a resistant, durable and easy to strip cable, providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors.

The SZ-stranded method for loose tubes and two ripcords ensure a quick and easy mid-span access.

Dielectric central strength member requires no bonding or grounding.
