Sub-Unitized Premise MicroCore® fiber optic cables are ideal for 12-144 fiber high performance premise installations where space is a premium. The round cross-sectional building blocks combine to provide a tight package, while enabling high density architecture. Each 12-fiber sub-unit consists of 250µm colored fibers and aramid strength members enclosed by a high performance jacket. Cable constructions are available supportin the stringent safety requirements of UL 1666, UL 1685, NFPA-262 as well as International LSZH standards. Riser rated cabling meets the recently revised Vertical Trunk cabling standards of Telcordia GR-409 reuiring an increased level of Tensile Strength to withstand floor-floor installations. This architecture is increasing in popularity as DataCenter operators work to utilize available floor-space in dense urban centers. The sub-units independently meet the interconnect standards of Telcordia GR-409 and are suitable for independent routing within well-maintained fiber management systems.
AFL’s Low-Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) distribution cable family offers all of the benefits of a traditional 900 µm based optical cable while supporting compliance to stringent international standards for Jacket Material composition and flame safety. Additionally, AFL's LSZH distribution cable design complies with UL 1666 and UL 1685 standards for OFNR-LS criteria. Circular premise cable based on 900 µm tight buffer constructions provides the performance and density demanded by today's optical network installation demands. These cable designs support either direct or indirect termination schemes while enabling efficient routing through industry-standard fiber management systems. Cable constructions support the application of industry-leading multimode fiber as well as single-mode solutions. Both fiber configurations are available in bend-insensitive designs as well.
The next generation of Sub-unitized MicroCore Cables represents the evolution of high performance premise cabling. Enabling the highest density infrastructures, significant savings in both space and fiber management and routing infrastructures are realized when deploying cables from this family. Constructed of the highest quality materials and to exacting industry standards, these small-diameter cables provide the solution sought by today's structured cabling professionals. Each sub-cable is independently qualified and is suitable for individual routing paths within the rack/panel architecture of the data center. This enables a flexibility of design and deployment not available in comparable high-density designs. Designed for direct termination and supportive of both single-fiber and multi-fiber architectures, this cable family should serve as the backbone to any deployed system. Cables are constructed with AFL Microcore technology consistent with a long line of market leading design components.
