Higher Density Sub-unitized MicroCore® 3.0

afl feature 09.09

Ideal for data centers, central offices and other high performance applications, AFL’s Sub-unitized Premise MicroCore 3.0 provides greater fiber density in a compact and easy to manage 3.0 mm frame. By utilizing a 24-fiber loose tube design, MicroCore 3.0 can house up to 288 fibers while maintaining a flexible form, thereby optimizing space in a new or existing routing infrastructure.

MicroCore 3.0 provides end users with a 400 percent increase in pathway capacity as compared to a 900 μm tight-buffered solution, and the loose tube design allows for greater fiber management than stacked ribbon cables. Through its use, the cable’s smaller diameter optimizes data center airflow and provides greater cooling efficiency.
