To meet the requirements of diverse networks, the choice of fiber and cable types has also never been higher. From different fiber types to fiber structures within cables to cable types, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. This webinar will provide a survey of fiber and cable types to help guide the end user towards a deeper understanding of how to choose cable types for a specific application. Attendees will learn about different fiber types that are used in various outside plant networks. They will also learn about different fiber structures, such as loose tube, ribbon, and rollable ribbon fiber structures. We will also discuss the pros and cons of different cable types in different applications
