Description

MDU Drop Cable
Waveoptics® MDU Drop Cable is ideal for FTTH applications, due to its flexibility, robustness and light weight. The optical fibers are positioned in the center of the cable under a 900um OFNR tight buffer tube. 3 mm and 4.8 mm outer diameter configurations available.
These cables are also widely used for drop cable assembly production, where consistency and uniformity are required for fast terminations to be used with standard cable termination tooling.
Water blocking aramid yarn as a strength member to provide excellent tensile strength as well as protection against water penetration.
