FTTH Indoor cable (Bow type)

General Details

The fiber optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads (fiber core), each of which is capable of transmitting messages modulated onto light waves. featured with the following advantages compared with traditional copper cable: Fiber optic cables have a much greater bandwidth to carry data than copper cables. Fiber optic cables are less susceptible than copper cables to interference. Fiber optic cables are much thinner and lighter than copper wires.

The FTTH drop cable is bow type or like butterfly. The optical fiber unit is positioned in the central. Two parallel Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) are placed at the two sides. Then the cable is completed with a black or color LSZH sheath.

IEC 60794-1

  • Simple structure, light weight, high tensile strength and metalfree
  • Novel groove design, easily strip and splice, simplified installation and maintenance
  • Low smoke, zero halogen and flame retardant sheath, environment-friendly, good safety
