Air Blown Fiber Optic Cable

Air blown fiber optic cable, also known as air blown micro cable, is known for its small outside diameter and high core capacity, and is designed to be used in backbone networks, metro networks and access networks to meet the demand for high speed bandwidth while reducing the cost of ducting infrastructure construction and lowering the purchase cost of fiber optic cable lines. Depending on the link design and the number of network access ports, Boneliks can produce 2 to 288 cores of air blown fiber optic cable with a maximum outside diameter of 9.8mm (0.2mm tolerance) depending on the project requirements.

Application

Backbone network construction, FTTH

Protection

UV resistance; low temp resistance; waterproof
