White Paper: Next Generation of Fiber Optic Loose Tube Cable

The evolutionary path of outside plant (OSP) fiber optic loose tube cables with the standard 600-lb load rating is leading to higher-fiber-density cables with smaller diameters and lighter weights. With advancements in manufacturing technologies, improved materials, and development of bend-insensitive optical fibers, AFL has developed the next-generation of high-performance 600-lb rated micro-loose tube cable for the communications cabling infrastructure market. This paper will review some of the money-saving attributes related to this new, more compact OSP micro-loose tube cable by comparing the AFL OSP MicroCore® LMHD-Series Fiber Optic Cable to larger, traditional loose tube cables.
