OFS unveils Fortex 2DT gel-free 200-micron loose tube fiber-optic cable

OFS  has introduced its Fortex 2DT loose tube fiber-optic cable. OFS claims that the Fortex 2DT cable "is the industry’s first totally gel-free loose tube cable to feature 200 micron optical fiber in a fully-rated Telcordia GR-20 design." The smaller and lighter weight cables can help to reduce installation costs in a number of ways including: allowing longer and faster installation with greater distances between handholes (underground installations); providing lighter loads on poles (for aerial installations); and enabling more cable on a reel, which can help to reduce shipping costs and enable fewer splice points.
